Will Ospreay was pulled from Revolution Pro Wrestling’s Epic Encounters event after he was rushed to hospital with a serious infection.

London-based promotion Revolution Pro Wrestling announced on May 21st that NJPW star and RevPro Undisputed British Heavyweight Champion Will Ospreay would not be competing in his much-anticipated bout against Minoru Suzuki at Epic Encounters as he had been rushed to A&E.

Following the announcement, Ospreay took to Twitter to apologise to fans and give more details on his condition. The Commonwealth Kingpin explained that he had blood tests on Friday night and was diagnosed with a serious kidney infection.

“I honestly can’t tell you how gutted I am to be missing Rev Pro. I’ve a temperate of 40 degree, I can’t stand up without feeling the need to faint, I’m sweating then cold straight away. Friday night I had my bloods taken to find out I have a serious kidney infection. Sorry”

Responding to United empire teammate Great O-Khan, Ospreay said he can’t give a timeframe for his return. On a more positive note, however, he claimed that when he does return, he wants the faction to “get all the gold”.

Will Ospreay was last in action at NJPW’s United Empire: Rising event at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. At the show, he defeated the legendary Homicide.

We here at Inside The Ropes would like to wish Will Ospreay a full and speedy recovery.
