Will Ospreay is gearing up for a showdown with longtime nemesis Kenny Omega at the upcoming NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 17 event on January 4. Incidentally, the latter is returning to the company after a while to take on someone many dub as his copycat.
Ospreay, the current IWGP US Heavyweight Champion, may have his work cut out against Omega, but that does not mean he doesn’t have an eye on the future. Having had a Twitter feud with Seth Rollins a few years ago, the two have not really interacted that much since, but the Brit, in an interview with Fightful, said that he has nothing but respect for Rollins, and would one day like a match with him.
“I hated seeing what he was actually going through. When everyone was being mean to him, I really didn’t like that. I thought it was a little bit too much. I saw it, as we were having fun with one another and taking the piss out one another, I didn’t like how people were actually harassing him. I don’t like that in general. I put myself in those situations and I don’t like it either.”
“Now, maturing and growing up and actually growing from all that, I hope he’s doing well. His character is cool, I love what he’s doing, and he’s definitely one of the best guys WWE has. I think it’d be an interesting showcase to have us both in the ring one day. If the WWE door does open, it would be great.”
