• Kevin Nash Trolls NJPW Wrestler Over Merchandise Sales Numbers

A parody Twitter account recently praised independent wrestler Will Ospreay, who’s also a former IWGP World Champion in NJPW, by putting over the amount of his ‘5 Star Matches’.

5 Stars is the highest rating the dirt sheets, first and foremost Dave Meltzer’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, gives to a professional wrestling match.

However, keep in mind that these ratings are strictly 100% subjective and biased and in no way, shape or form is factual or anything that everyone has to agree on.

Here’s what the parody account tweeted:

“Will Ospreay has had more 5-star matches (4) in 1 month than CM Punk, John Cena, and Kurt Angle have combined in their entire career (3).”

Old School WWF Legend ‘Diesel’ Kevin Nash then replied the following on Twitter:

“How’s his merchandise sales?”

Ospreay then tweeted:

“Did you tear your quads writing this tweet?”

Former AEW World Champion Kenny Omega then sided with Nash:

“Justifiably putrid, good sir.”

Keep in mind that Kevin Nash’s nWo shirts are most likely considered THE most sold pro wrestling merchandise in history, with the Austin 3:16 shirt probably being a close second.

With that being said, despite Ospreay’s merchandise often being sold out at Indy shows (as well as NJPW shows), the sheer amount of available shirts at those stands obviously can not be compared to the availability of merchandise at WWF/WCW shows during the Monday Night Wars.
