• “You guys aren’t wrestlers” – Former World Champion To WWE Superstars
During an interview on WRESTHINGS podcast, NJPW’s former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Will Ospreay talked about WWE and the WWE Superstars.
Below are the highlights:
On if he wants to join WWE someday:
“I’ll be honest and say it right now, I have no aspirations of going to WWE at all and it’s not because of the product or anything along those lines.
I mean, I am not a fan of it, I will happily say … I never wanted to be the big style pro wrestler.
Japan allows me to do a tour and then come home and live my family life, if anybody has ever spent more than a couple of days with me, family to me is everything.”
On what he thinks about the WWE Superstars:
“You guys aren’t wrestlers, you’re actors and you just do wrestling and I don’t think that’s a dig. You guys make way more money than me like, good on you.
But I just feel like when I say proudly, ‘That’s a wrestler. I am a wrestler, I am not an actor,’ but I know you guys can wrestle, you’re just not really allowed to show it, I guess.
But other than you want to make a lot of money and retire, that’s what WWE is kind of for these days.”
