Will Ospreay Says WWE Stars Are Actors And Not Wrestlers

During his recent appearance on the WRESTHINGS podcast, Will Ospreay detailed the reasons why he doesn’t like the WWE product and has no desire to wrestle there.

Ospreay also went on to say how he believes WWE stars are actors rather than professional wrestlers.

“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,” he stated. “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.”

“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,” Ospreay said. “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.”
