X-Pac comments on the Twitter feud between Will Ospreay and Seth Rollins.
Wrestling Twitter exploded this week when WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins and IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Will Ospreay got into an argument over who is better. Neither man backed off their stance, with the feud earning Ospreay more social media clout and extra money as he began selling "Little Guy" shirts, playing off a dig made at him by Rollins.
On a recent episode of his podcast, WWE Hall of Famer X-Pac gave his thoughts on the feud.
"I don’t have a problem with it, and even if I did, who gives a fuck? Seth coming out and saying he’s the best and that they’re the best," said X-Pac. "I mean that’s what you do…I don’t have a problem with either one of them saying what they said. Will Ospreay is the f**ken shit, good argument, a really good argument for him being the best on the planet. I am just being brutally honest, after watching his shit lately, even the in-between the moves shit he is on a level where only a few other people are. I think he is the most valuable guy New Japan has, that’s not Japanese, by a long shot…. He’s (Seth Rollins) just being him, you know for better or worse, you can like it or not like it. He has a pretty good argument, he’s one of the best out there, one of the elites… My feelings are this is just fine. It’s just back and forth bantering, shit talking. Big fan of both of them."
Ospreay went on Wrestling Observer Radio and stated that he believes it gets under Rollins' skin that the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Title is more valuable than the WWE Universal Title. You can view Ospreay's full comments by clicking here.
