Will Ospreay On Triple H Jab: I'm Kind Of Done Mentioning Anyone Over There, I Don't Need To Do That Anymore

Will Ospreay doesn't want to address the Triple H jab anymore.

Ahead of WWE WrestleMania XL, Triple H sparked controversy when he said that if talent elsewhere was not in it for the grind, then they had no business being in WWE. Will Ospreay was not named in Triple H's comments, but he seemingly thought Triple H was talking about him, as he responded on the April 10 episode of AEW Dynamite. He fired back by saying that the person who said that he was afraid of the grind got his position by grinding the boss' daughter. The exchange led to plenty of discourse heading into AEW Dynasty.

At the AEW Dynasty post-show media scrum, Kaden Lee of WrestlePurists asked Will Ospreay whether his output in matches like his bout against Bryan Danielson at the pay-per-view silenced that conversation.

"Yes, of course. I don’t want to address it anymore. I can remember a generation of when I grew up where like, you throw a jab, I throw one back. Although I wasn’t mentioned by name, it was clearly about me. All due respect, I’m kind of done mentioning anyone over there now. I don’t want to do that anymore because I feel I lowered myself to that standard. I don’t need to do that anymore. Look what I just did in the ring with Bryan. That’s only match two from pay-per-view. I’ve got a fuckload more to go down. With all due respect, if you take everything into consideration, of course I’m annoyed about a jab that I took. I threw one back, I don’t think it was anything bad. It’s a joke from 20 years ago for fuck sake. Don’t be too butthurt. That’s the first time I’ve ever experienced true tribalism between the two. It’s not nice. It’s unnecessary. I’m over it. I can’t be bothered with it. I just want to be focused on promoting AEW. I don’t regret what I said. You take the entire thing into consideration, it did piss me off, but from this day on, I won’t go down that road. I don’t need to. I’m the best wrestler in the world. I don’t need to fuck with guys below me," Ospreay said.
