Will Ospreay is one of NJPW biggest stars. But with wrestlers we don't rarely hear much what goes off outside the ring. Will Ospreay does commendable acts and this weekend was no exception.

The current IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion was attending a scheduled meet & greet through Warrior Wrestling that took place at the Logan Square Auditorium in Chicago. But unfortunately one fan that traveled far to meet the leader of NJPW’s United Empire stable was unable to deploy the ramp that allows him to exit his van properly. Ospreay would react to the situation honorably, assuring that the fan still had his opportunity for a meet & greet.

The fan would be full of praise for Will:

“After driving nearly an hour and a 1/2 to the North side of Chicago on a Friday, dealing with brutal Chicago weekend traffic in the heat with no place to park or move because every sidewalk and street is just packed with people… Will is probably one of the best pro wrestlers if not human beings I’ve ever had an interaction with,” the fan writes in his tweet. “Because I couldn’t physically deploy my ramp to get out of my van, him and the amazing Warrior Wrestling staff were kind enough to just meet me outside in the parking lot and talk for like 30 minutes and just shoot the sh*t about life and wrestling. He was even kind enough to get in my van so I could take a picture with him and signed a poster and my AEW Chicago hat.

Ospreay is scheduled for AEW: Dynamite this Wednesday in a trios match see him pairing with Aussie Open (Kyle Fletcher and Mark Davis) against Orange Cassidy & Roppongi Vice (Trent Beretta & Rocky Romero). Earlier this weekend, Ospreay vs. Cassidy was announced for AEW x NJPW “Forbidden Door” on Sunday, June 26.
