Ahead of the opening round of the NJPW Super J-Cup tournament, IWGP Junior Heavyweight champion Will Ospreay took to Twitter to praise his opponent, wrestling legend Amazing Red. Ospreay recalls idolizing Red since he was a young boy, and hopes that the two can create some magic during tonight’s showdown in Tacoma.
The amount of messages today about this match has been unbelievable.
Watching this man when I was a 14 year old kid, copying his moves, filming it and putting it on YouTube. Now standing opposite a legend tonight.
