Can NJPW Star Will Ospreay Become The British Heavyweight Champion At RPW High Stakes?
Ever since it was announced that Will Ospreay would return to the UK for Revolution Pro Wrestling’s High Stakes event, there has been one match that everyone wants to see. This is Will Ospreay vs. Zack Sabre Jr for the British Heavyweight Championship. Two of the best from the region on their home turf. One is the best high flyer in the world, the other is the best technical wrestler around. Every time they clash it only gets better, and this upcoming match promises to be their best yet.
Zack Sabre Jr Recently Defeated Will Ospreay By Referee Stoppage
Their last singles clash was very recent, happening on Night Two of New Beginning In Sapparo. At the end of a 27 minute war, Will Ospreay was rendered unable to compete by a submission hold of Zack Sabre Jr, with the referee stopping the match before any long lasting damage was done. Ospreay refused to tap out, and would instead pass out from pain. Ospreay would later redeem this loss with a pinfall victory in a tag team match, earning him this upcoming championship match. At New Beginning In Osaka Ospreay would find himself on the winning side, when he teamed with Kazuchika Okada to face Sabre Jr. & Taichi.
Could Ospreay Finally Become British Heavyweight Champion?
Will Ospreay despite being one of the biggest stars in modern British wrestling, has never held the British Heavyweight Championship. He has attempted to beat AJ Styles, Katsuyori Shibata, and of course Zack Sabre Jr for the championship in the past, but has never been able to actually claim the championship. Will Ospreay was possibly the best wrestler in all of the industry in 2019. While 2020 started with him losing the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship to Hiromu Takahashi, he only needs one victory to get back on track. This match against Zack Sabre Jr. could be that victory.
With him not likely to get another shot at Hiromu Takahashi until Dominion, he will not get many other title shots until then, meaning he needs to ensure this one counts. He could win the New Japan Cup, but that will be a daunting task for a junior heavyweight, even one as skilled as Ospreay.
