Will Ospreay will be working New Orleans this weekend.
Ospreay confirmed on Twitter this morning that he will be in New Orleans this weekend after landing on his neck in a scary spot during a match against Marty Scurll at Sakura Genesis this past Sunday. Ospreay took Scurll to the apron and went for a spanish fly to the floor, but landed badly upon impact and was busted wide open. Ospreay was able to finish the match, retaining the IWGP Jr. title, but was said to be in great pain after the match.
“I will fight. #NOLA” was the message posted on Twitter.
Key matches he will be a part in this weekend include a match against Matt Riddle on April 6 at the WWN Supershow, against AR Fox at EVOLVE 102 and appearances for CZW, RevPro and the WrestleCon Supershow.
Ospreay is also scheduled for a New Japan tour later this month, culminating with a title match against KUSHIDA on the second night of Wrestling Dontaku on May 4 in Fukuoka.
