Will Ospreay Says His IWGP Junior Title Is More Prestigious Than The Universal Title

NJPW superstar Will Ospreay was the latest guest on Wrestling Observer Radio where the 26-year old Brit opened up about his recent Twitter feud with WWE Universal champion Seth Rollins. In the interview Ospreay clarifies that he, like Rollins, also works a heavy schedule and is still able to pull off amazing matches year round. He also wonders why Rollins brought Ricochet into the conversation, then claims that his IWGP Junior Heavyweight championship is more important than the Universal championship, and that gets under Rollins’ skin.

I don’t think there is anything malicious behind it at all. So the question he asks is ‘Find me someone alive that has the type of schedule I do and that can do what I can do’ all I just said was ‘I’m alive.’ I am very much alive. And the thing that makes me laugh more about it is he brought in Ricochet to try to tear me down. Dude you don’t have to do it you can be like ‘oh maybe we can have a match one day but…I think the thing is…Maybe it just gets under his skin that like my championship…my Junior championship means more than his Universal championship….who knows?
