Will Ospreay cleared to return for night five of NJPW G1 Climax


Will Ospreay is returning to the ring in time for night five of NJPW's G1 Climax.

NJPW announced that, after suffering a neck injury, Ospreay has undergone a thorough examination and has been cleared to return to the ring. Ospreay will face Kota Ibushi in an A Block match in the main event of night five of the G1, which is taking place at Korakuen Hall in Tokyo on Thursday morning.

Ospreay wrote about being cleared: "Death can kiss me all it wants, it never nails me. Translation: I got the green light. See you tomorrow Korakuen."

Ospreay missed a tag match on night four of the tournament this Monday due to the neck injury. On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that the injury was a stinger and that Ospreay suffered it in his match against SANADA on night three of the G1.

Ospreay has had two tournament matches thus far, losing to Lance Archer on night one and defeating SANADA on night three.
