Will Ospreay on Injury

With Ospreay’s partner Bea Priestley having already returned to the UK amid a potential signing with NXT UK; there have been rumors that Ospreay himself is WWE bound.

It’s worth noting however, that the former IWGP Champion has taken to social media to confirm his injury and that he ‘hopes’ to be back wrestling in 2021, so wherever he ends up, it might be quite some time away.

“Had my physio pop over the house today & after further digging I’m now being referred for another MRI on my lower back” Ospreay tweeted recently.

“[That is] for fears I may have the same issue in my neck. Things ain’t looking good, but I’m determined to comeback this year. Thanks for all the support” Ospreay concluded.
