“He taught me so much. Our last time in the ring we had a moment of respect between us. I’ll always have a big spot in my heart for him and making me the wrestler I am today. The best wrestler,” – wrote Ospreay.

In 2020, Kushida also teamed up with Alex Shelley in WWE, as Time Splitters reunited once again. The two men entered the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic before being eliminated. The reunion was a one-off.

Will Ospreay will be challenging for the IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship in a few days

At NJPW Wrestling Dontaku 2022 on May 1st, Will Ospreay will be challenging for the vacant IWGP US Heavyweight Championship. The title was vacated by SANADA at NJPW Hyper Battle after he suffered an injury in his match against Ospreay at the New Japan Cup 2022 tournament.

SANADA initially wanted former champion Hiroshi Tanahashi to get his hands on the belt once again. However, Ospreay made it pretty clear that it was he who wanted to get his hands on the IWGP US Heavyweight Championship for the very first time.

Ospreay is also preparing for a massive match against Jon Moxley at NJPW Windy City Riot in Chicago. For months, Ospreay had been calling out Moxley, as NJPW eventually confirmed a colossal showdown between the two.
