AEW World Champion Kenny Omega was ranked number one and RevPro British Heavyweight Champion Will Ospreay ranked number seven in this year’s PWI 500. They exchanged words on Twitter after the list came out.
Ospreay said, “I’d beat up number 1 any day of the week and twice on Wednesdays…just saying.”
Omega responded with, “Your promotion has been so ice cold since I left that not even Meltzer can convince his followers that you were part of any BITW conversation. It hurts me, bruv. One of you dorks should have been the guy. Turned out a bigger dog was my only competition.”
Dave Meltzer reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that there are no current plans for Omega and Ospreay to have a match.
Although both wrestlers want the match, it’s just not in the cards. Perhaps, one day it will as NJPW and AEW have a working relationship at the moment.
