Videos: Ricochet, Will Ospreay wow in NJPW Best of the Super Juniors

Every year, New Japan Pro Wrestling hosts a tournament called the Best of the Super Juniors. It not only features some of the best professional wrestlers in the world, but provides fans everywhere with the greatest display of pure athleticism the wrestling world has to offer.

The most recent matchup between Ricochet and Will Ospreay, two of the most recognizable names in the indie wrestling scene, on Thursday night was one of the more exciting of the tournament. From a fury of athletic counters to some gravity-defying moves, this match had just about everything any wrestling fan would love.

Just watch and enjoy.

Ospreay has already been contacted by WWE and he could end up with the company before too long. After watching this display, I think any fan is going to be excited about the young, but seasoned veteran.

The Best of the Super Juniors tournament has been held every year since 1988 and has some legendary names like the late Eddie Guerrero, then known as Black Tiger II, Finn Balor, then known as Prince Devitt, and Jushin Thunder Liger. It is hard not to see why it is one of the more popular events in all of professional wrestling.
