Will Ospreay is quickly becoming one of AEW’s top stars. He has been in AEW for a very short time but has quickly become the star to follow there. Although people expected a lot from him, he has somehow exceeded those expectations.

However, many people do not know about Will Ospreay’s old moveset which was quite outrageous! Will got his nickname the ‘Aerial Assassin’ for being a high flying wrestler. He used to perform high risk moves in the UK indies and in Japan.

However, he also used to take very bad bumps. People did not expect him to be able to walk by the time he turned 40.

Will recently appeared on the Talk Is Jericho podcast, where he spoke about the advice that Jericho gave to him.

It was Jericho that helped Will progress far in his career. Will believes that without Jericho’s help, he would never had been the wrestler that he is today. "I appreciated that so much, you have no idea," Ospreay said.

"I was sat in my room in my parents house, you called me up and went 'do you mind if we have a chat?' I was like 'yeah go for it' and you went 'listen man, I've just watched you take a DDT off the apron. You've got to stop doing, you've got to be calm about this,' and I really did appreciate it because even though I'm in control of what I'm doing, but deep down I was like 'you give a s**t.

You care too much to be like you've got a long career, you can be bigger than this but you've got to wind your neck in on these things.' " Will also thanked Jericho for being honest with him, as Jericho didn’t owe him anything, and therefore, didn’t have to tell him anything.

Will believes that he hasn’t done anything that could be considered too risky in the past few years. However, Jericho was still concerned about him and asked him to tone things down, so that he doesn’t end up getting seriously hurt or has to retire due to injuries.

After Jericho’s advice, Will’s style has become more physical. He can still perform high flying moves such as Stormbreaker and The Hidden Blade. These moves can’t be performed very easily by anyone. According to Will, Jericho’s advice helped Will perform well against Jericho during the All In PPV at Wembley Stadium.
