New Japan Pro Wrestling has released the Best of Super Juniors Night 6 match featuring Ricochet vs Will Ospreay, which you can watch below.
WCW Legend Vader had some strong words to say about the match which he criticized for not telling a story:
“Wrestling is telling a story. This just isn’t wrestling. They’re rolling side by side in sync, they never learned to tell a story.”
“Wrestling is all about telling a story. What you youngsters have seen your whole life is fans that have become promoters and second tier wrestlers.”
“A little real wrestling mixed in with this dancing gymnastic routine would go a long way. Fantastic gymnastics, though.”
“Their moves are athletic, they both are great wrestlers. When it’s done side by side as a routine something has to say ‘I’m trying to win.'”
“I’m all for wrestling evolving as long as it stays consistent with someone winning and someone losing. Tell that story. Demonstrate that.”
