Will Ospreay on Whether ‘Best in the World’ Match Diminishes World Champion

Will Ospreay on Whether 'Best in the World' Match Diminishes World Champion

Will Ospreay on Whether ‘Best in the World’ Match Diminishes World ChampionWill Ospreay defeated Bryan Danielson in a fantastic match at AEW Dynasty. It has been called one of the best matches ever, and gives Ospreay bragging rights over Danielson as the best wrestler in the world.

However, that moniker is at odds with Swerve Strickland, who beat Samoa Joe at the same event to become AEW Champion.

Will Ospreay recently spoke with Paste Magazine about that subject. He was asked whether two wrestlers fighting over who is the “best in the world” diminishes the world champion. Will Ospreay disagreed with that notion, claiming that the feud is more about comparing his journey to Danielson’s than insulting the AEW Champion.

“I don’t think so at all. I think what you have here is two lads, myself and Danielson, that have never crossed paths before, that have gone to their respective companies and held the top prize,” Ospreay pointed out. “Everywhere Bryan Danielson’s gone, barring AEW, he’s held the top prize, therefore giving him that right to call himself the best. But everywhere I’ve gone I’ve held the top prize. Like, I’ve dominated.

“I think Danielson and I think are very similar in a lot of respects. We have traveled the world and we’ve gone everywhere. We’ve gone to Australia, America. I haven’t gotten to Mexico yet—maybe one day, probably not. But Japan, England, we’ve held championships all around the world, which I’m sure the World champion Samoa Joe can say, and Swerve Strickland can say. And now obviously they’re fighting for that right to be the best. But I think this is more bragging rights between myself and Danielson, like, “my journey was different than your journey.”

Will Ospreay continued, comparing AEW to a trip to Disneyland. Ospreay does not want to wait around before being given a shot at the AEW Championship, and thinks Tony Khan needs to “put a number down” for him to get a title shot.

“I said it in an interview but AEW is my Disneyland right now. When I go to Disneyland I don’t get the normal tickets. I get fast passes because I don’t want to wait around. So for me now, Tony [Khan, AEW’s owner and booker] just needs to put a number down. How many of these guys do I need to beat before I get a championship match? And I think, personally, he’s done that now. He’s more or less said, alright, beat Danielson, and let’s see where you are. Because I think after this match it’s about seeing what championship gold is in my eyesight.”
