First, it was at RevPro’s “XI Anniversary” event, a significant moment unfolded as Will Ospreay found himself confronted by none other than Zack Sabre Jr., the reigning NJPW World TV Champion. In a message to his long-time rival, Sabre stated, “If you manage to hold onto that IWGP UK title, you’ve just found your next challenger”.
Following Ospreay’s successful defense of his red and gold championship against the formidable Yota Tsuji in the main event of the “DESTRUCTION in KOBE” on September 24, Sabre once again emerged to confront the Aerial Assassin. Their rivalry, which has been a cornerstone of British wrestling on the global stage for much of the past decade, saw the challenge and its acceptance occur in front of a live audience, underscoring the significance of the moment.
In a backstage interview, Ospreay reflected on the remarkable journey they’ve embarked upon together, representing their country and its standing in the wrestling world. Their impending clash at the Copper Box on October 14 promises to be yet another classic chapter in a rivalry that has not only defined both men’s careers but also left an indelible mark on the landscape of British wrestling.
