Will Ospreay wrestled part of his Wrestle Kingdom 14 bout and New Year Dash!! 2020 match with a fractured heel.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer reports Ospreay suffered a fractured heel against Hiromu Takahashi at Wrestle Kingdom 14 night one while performing the Sasuke special during the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Title bout. It was initially believed that Ospreay suffered a broken heel or ankle, but an x-ray revealed a fracture.
Following Wrestle Kingdom 14, Ospreay posted a photo of himself with ice on his foot. He would work a multi-man tag team match at New Year Dash!! but his portion of the action was rather limited.
