Will Ospreay wants to draw a line under his public spat with Paul Levesque.

During the AEW Dynasty press conference, Ospreay was asked about his recent promo that took aim at the WWE Chief Content Officer.

He said:

I don’t wanna address it anymore. Like I come from a generation when, the way I grow up, if you throw a jab, I throw one back.

And although I wasn’t mentioned by name, it was clearly about me. So, all due respect, I’m kind of done with mentioning anyone over there now.

He added:

I’ll be honest with you, 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 focus on promoting AEW. So I don’t regret what I said…but from this day on, I won’t like go down that route.

I don’t need to, do you know what I mean? I’m the best f—king wrestler in the world. I don’t need to f–king f–k with guys below me.

Earlier during the presser, presumably in storyline, Ospreay apologized for not seeing that the referee had called for the doctor at the end of his match with Bryan Danielson. He said he had reviewed the footage and felt “awful”. He added that he would stop using the Storm Driver.

Ospreay also addressed reports that he had paid for a ring for Soft Ground Wrestling in Uganda.

Honestly, that gave me so much joy and happiness to see what they did because it reminds me of when we used to backyard.

And seeing that over there, I couldn’t believe the joy and the energy that they were bringing.

I see so many people being negative all the time. And in a place like this, I can’t believe how lucky I am to be here. I cannot believe how lucky I am to be a part of this roster.

To have that — those fans today were ridiculous. I can’t believe how lucky I am.

And to see people like moan, and then to see like they have the wrestling on the ground, for f–k’s sake, like to see that, and to see their enthusiasm, their energies.

I want to be a part of that too…I’m saying, I really want to go over to Uganda and go do some wrestling.
