NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 17 is already buzzing over the internet for some big appearances from the top stars in the wrestling world.
...And what happened between Will Ospreay and Kenny Omega during the NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 17 press conference on Tuesday, has lightened up the internet. The press conference included final words from Kenny Omega and Will Ospreay ahead of their IWGP US Title clash at Wrestle Kingdom 17.
During the press conference, Ospreay fired up and got in Omega's face to explain why no one should question his mental fortitude.
"Fucking listen to me. First of all, you little cunt, shut your fucking mouth. Listen to me now. You have no fucking idea the mental state...you want to know my mental state, bruv? You got to sit in your house and do at maximum, what, three hour drives to Florida? That's all you had to do during this. For us, for me, it's a 12 hour flight from England all the way. That turned into a 15-and-a-half-hour flight, why? Because of the fucking war going on in Russia and Ukraine. After that, I was carting around the fucking airport for four hours because I had to prove that I was negative for COVID, even though I had a fucking doctor's note saying that I didn't have it.
That wasn't good enough, then I had to stay 14 fucking days in a hotel no bigger than a broom cupboard, bruv. 14 days of your own fucking brain. Then you're allowed to go out and go wrestle for everyone, in silence, without seeing any fucking daylight for two weeks. The shows end at 9 PM, and restaurants close at 8, so you're starving half your fucking roster, but we kept fucking going. Listen to me, I don't understand, and I don't know why anyone would want to watch clap crowd wrestling. I don't know anyone that wants to watch that, but people fucking turned up. For that, I had to fight. For you to fucking sitting there and belittle me, you little cunt, how fucking dare you. You have not the slightest idea what I've gone through.
"My best friend fucking died and I had to watch his funeral through a fucking iPad, bruv. How dare you sit there and belittle anything that I've fucking done to try and help. I get it, you're a big star, you're a fucking draw for this place. You have brought everyone, the casual fans and all those Kenny Omega stans back to New Japan, thank you so much. Now, they're going to watch you go down to me. The guy that has fucking stayed here, the guy that has given his fucking all to this place, mate. I listened to everyone fucking word you told me four years ago.
I'm telling you now, I'm sorry for what happened to him [Kota Ibushi], and I'm sorry I took that away from you, but make no mistake about it. If you find yourself in that same position that he did, there isn't going to be a referee stopping me from caving your fucking head in, bruv. You will not belittle me on the grandest stage that I am now. This is my moment now. You're either going to pass this torch or I am going to fucking take it from you."
