Days after going against mother, Will Ospreay regrets commemorative act following attendance bust

Will Ospreay is considered to be one of the best wrestlers of this generation. The NJPW star has had several high-profile matches in many promotions around the world. He faced off against Chris Jericho at AEW’s All In PPV last month. The event was celebrated due to allegedly having over 81,000 in paid attendance, which Ospreay decided to commemorate by getting a tattoo. However, in a now-deleted video, he seems to regret his decision.

Ospreay faced off against the veteran Chris Jericho at AEW’s All-In last month, and, as expected, the two superstars put on a fantastic match, which eventually saw Ospreay pick up the victory over Jericho. The NJPW star has been featured on AEW before, on both the weekly shows Dynamite and Rampage.

Will Ospreay regrets commemorative tattoo

Initially, All In was reported to have about 81,035 people in attendance for the event. Apparently, this number was higher than the crowd at WrestleMania 32, which took place in the same venue as All In. This milestone was celebrated by Will Ospreay, who decided to get the number tattooed on his arm.

However, he would soon go on to regret his decision, as the number no longer holds any significance. After it was revealed that about 72,265 people passed through the turnstiles at Wembley Stadium, which was the venue for All In, it was soon discovered that AEW had inflated almost 10,000 numbers in their initial report.

This news seemingly upset Will Ospreay, who had already begun to regret his decision to go against his mother’s wishes to get a tattoo of the original number of total attendance at the event. In a now-deleted video, Ospreay could be seen frustrated as he ranted about getting the number 81,035 on his arm, which was now looking like a bad decision on his part.

“Bruv, you cannot make this fking sht up. I am currently in Japan, I’ve had no fking sleep, I’m tired and [laughs] this is the worst fking day of my life,”  said Ospreay. “You know how hard it was for me to get a tattoo? My mum fking hates them, bruv. They announced it to everyone, they announced it as … 81,000 people. I’ve got this f*king thing [tattoo] on my arm now [laughs].”

AEW All In’s turnstile numbers show significant deviation from record attendance

The UK government ruined AEW’s celebration for their ‘record-breaking’ attendance when they released the number of people who passed through the turnstiles at Wembley Stadium, which was significantly lower than the number that was initially reported by the promotion.

AEW had gone on record to announce that All In had a total of 81,035 people in paid attendance for the event. However, in reality, only 72,265 people were recorded to have shown up. This misinformation seemingly ruined the promotion’s credibility, as they tried to inflate the attendance figures to make it look like their event surpassed the attendance record held by WrestleMania 32.

Despite the misinformation about the attendance figures, All In was a great success for AEW. It brought in millions for the promotion and gave the fans a memorable show.
