AEW President Tony Khan responds to Kevin Nash’s criticism of Will Ospreay

As previously noted, WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash has been critical of Will Ospreay. During his podcast, Nash described Ospreay as “indie-rific” and also said that Ospreay “needs to get in better shape.”

During an interview with Josh Martinez on Superstar Crossover, AEW President Tony Khan responded to Nash’s comments…

“I think Kevin Nash was a great wrestler. His opinions on wrestling I’m not sure I agree with them. He’s had some takes on Will Ospreay that I definitely don’t agree with. I’d be remiss if I don’t bring that up. I think Will Ospreay is one of the best young wrestlers in the world. We’re really fortunate to have Will Ospreay in AEW. He’s been coming in week in and week out and working so hard, having great matches. Both pay-per-views he’s been on he’s had these classic matches against Takeshita at AEW Revolution and against Bryan Danielson over a week ago at AEW Dynasty. I think Will Ospreay is so phenomenal.

I’ve heard criticisms from Kevin that I don’t necessarily agree with about Will. Some of his opinions about current wrestling I just don’t agree with. I wish him the best and all the respect in the world to him.” (quote courtesy of
