New Japan Pro Wrestling posted the full Will Osprey versus Ricochet Best of the Super Juniors match that happened last Friday on YouTube.

It is also free to view on New Japan World.

The match has been polarizing. Some believe that it is a phenomenal match while others particularly former WCW champion Vader said that the match was a gymnastics display and did not tell a story. Many disputed this interpretation of the contest including WWE’s William Regal who stated the following:

“I watched the match and was shocked.You need to start doing real stuff like people from my era like kip ups,flying head scissors,cart wheels and criss crosses.Get a grip!When I started the job in ’83 a lot of the older fellas used to say that Marc Rocco and Marty Jones(who were the real pioneers of the CW style) had killed the business because they did to much.Although they may not admit it anymore,most of the heavyweights in Europe thought the brilliant lightweight and middleweight wrestlers were bad for the job because their style was “not believable enough”..Every country I worked in before I came to the US had different styles and ways of doing things.As long as there’s effort then it’s right.If the people paying you are happy and you get reactions then make your stuff as good as it can be with what skills you have.May not be for everyone but that’s ok.In the match I saw two fellas who looked like fighters having an excellent,hard competed match in a different style.Win win!”

Regal later noted he was not specifically replying to Vader, but was entering the conversation after seeing others, including MVP, Tweeting about the bout.
