Will Ospreay Cleared to Continue in G1 Climax

A neck injury will not stop the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion in the G1 Climax.

Will Ospreay has announced that New Japan Pro-Wrestling has medically cleared him to continue in the G1 Climax 29 tournament. After his match with SANADA on July 14th, NJPW stated that Ospreay had sustained a neck injury and would be taken off the card for Day 4 of the tournament on July 15th. He was originally scheduled to compete in a six man tag team match with Yota Tsuji and Yuya Uemura against Kota Ibushi, Jushin Thunder Liger, and Shota Umino.

NJPW did not specify the injury, but shared that Ospreay was not suffering from any skeletal or nervous issues. On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer stated that Ospreay sustained a stinger during the match against SANADA, and Ospreay tweeted that he was in a “huge amount of pain.”
