Will Ospreay was pulled from his buzzworthy clash with Minoru Suzuki at Revolution Pro Wrestling’s Epic Encounters event on March 22, and “The Commonwealth Kingpin” commented on the news by offering more information.
On Saturday, RevPro announced that Ospreay would be unable to compete due to a kidney infection; the company stated that it initially seemed like the popular competitor had food positioning, but his condition worsened, so he was rushed to a medical facility.
In a subsequent tweet, Ospreay apologized to the fans and stated that blood tests revealed he has a “serious kidney infection.”
I honestly can’t tell you how gutted I am to be missing Rev Pro.
I’ve a temperate of 40 degree, I can’t stand up without feeling the need to faint, I’m sweating then cold straight away.
Friday night I had my bloods taken to find out I have a serious kidney infection.

When his United Empire stablemate Great-O-Khan wished him well, Ospreay wrote that he doesn’t have a time frame for his in-ring return, but once he’s back, he wants the group to “get all the gold.”
Thank you man. Can’t really navigate a time frame to be back yet.
When I’m back let’s get all the gold
