Just 48 hours removed from making a colossal cheb out of himself by insisting that WWE has the "best wrestling on the planet" before farting out Stomping Grounds' shoddy main event, Seth Rollins finds himself embroiled in a Twitter spat with NJPW standout Will Ospreay.
It began with Ospreay responding "I'm alive" to Rollins doubling down on his initial claim. WWE's 'Beast Slayer' then came through with this:-
A Ricky Gervais gif followed, before the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion came through with a simple fact, bringing out Rollins at his absolute pettiest:-

Rollins' bullishness is likely a response to the widespread criticism WWE has come in for in 2019, while NJPW and AEW continue to enjoy mass acclaim. That being said, even his staunchest defenders must admit his 'Best in the World' case is thin this year, while Ospreay, who is in the form of his life, is on a career-best run.
To what end are they bickering, thought? They can't exactly wrestle each other.
A caffeine-dependent life-form from the frozen wastes of north east Scotland. He once tried to start a revolution but didn't print enough pamphlets, so hardly anyone turned up. Give him a follow @andyhmurray. You'll have a great time. Maybe.
