Will Ospreay Turns Heel & Will Lead His Own Faction

Will Ospreay

Today NJPW held the final day of A Block action in the G1 Climax.  On the show we saw Kazuchika Okada take on Will Ospreay in a match that both men needed to win in order to stay alive in the block.  Ospreay won, but via some nefarious means.

First Bea Priestley, Ospreay’s partner and Stardom roster member, made her way to the ring.  Priestley is currently a member of the ultra heel Oedo Tai faction in Stardom.  Her influence quickly became clear when The Great O-Kharn (Tomoyuki Oka) made his return from his British excursion to attack Okada.  This led to Ospreay hitting the Storm Breaker and walking away as the winner, beating Okada for the first time in the process.

Ospreay confirmed in the post-match comments that he will indeed be making his own faction.  Given the presence of Bea Priestley it is likely that Ospreay will lead a heel faction, similar to Oedo Tai.  This is a big opportunity for Ospreay who could become a main event talent, and possible IWGP Champion, as he leads his won group in the company.
