Will Ospreay challenged Kota Ibushi for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship at NJPW’s Sakura Genesis event last year. Ospreay shocked the world after defeating Ibushi to become the new champion and cemented his legacy. Unfortunately, he was forced to relinquish it due to a neck injury.
The Aerial Assassin has come back with a vengeance since then and has already won championships since his return. Ospreay’s impeccable in-ring skills and charisma always elevate him to the top of any company.
This weekend, Ospreay attended a scheduled meet & greet through Warrior Wrestling that took place at the Logan Square Auditorium in Chicago. One fan that traveled far to meet him was unable to deploy the ramp that allows him to exit his van properly.
Will Ospreay reacted to the ordeal in a wonderful way, as he made it clear that the fan still had his opportunity for a meet & greet. The fan took to Twitter and revealed what Ospreay did.
“After driving nearly an hour and a 1/2 to the North side of Chicago on a Friday, dealing with brutal Chicago weekend traffic in the heat with no place to park or move because every sidewalk and street is just packed with people… Will is probably one of the best pro wrestlers if not human beings I’ve ever had an interaction with,” the fan writes in his tweet. “Because I couldn’t physically deploy my ramp to get out of my van, him and the amazing Warrior Wrestling staff were kind enough to just meet me outside in the parking lot and talk for like 30 minutes and just shoot the sh*t about life and wrestling. He was even kind enough to get in my van so I could take a picture with him and signed a poster and my AEW Chicago hat.
“Plus we talked about the FORBIDDEN DOOR and how he is personally going to kick the sh*t out of Orange Cassidy for me (praise hands emoji). Will & the entire Warrior Wrestling staff made everything about this day and experience worth it for both Ezra and I. Thank you guys so much. Forever grateful and God bless.”
Will Ospreay is set to defend his IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship against Orange Cassidy at the Forbidden Door event. We’ll have to see whether he’ll successfully retain the title or not.
