In digital exclusives posted to AEW’s social media, both Roderick Strong and Will Ospreay took shots at each other before their International title match at Double or Nothing. On last night’s Dynamite, Strong attacked Ospreay and left him busted open.

Ospreay said: “You think I look pretty bad right now, right? No, this is nothing. Mate, I’ve been on four-day benders, had a bowl of Cocoa Puffs, got on a plane to Japan, called out the toughest guy, and whooped him in front of his wife and kids while I was smiling, bruv. You think this is the end, Messiah? What, am I to believe in you, am I? You think that this scares me? Nah, I live for this, bruv. I flew all the way from England on a ten-hour flight, got transferred over to Bakersfield, and this? This is the best that you’ve got? My Messiah, am I meant to believe in you, man? Am I meant to believe? No, man. The only thing that I believe in is bell-to-bell, internationally known, no one is better than me inside that ring, and now what you’ve just done, Roderick, what you’ve just done is it’s bonded me with that championship. My blood is on that championship. So now, it is my duty, it is my spirit that is bonded with that championship. So Sunday, in the perfect city to do it in, bet it all. Gamble your life on it, son. Because now, it is my life’s mission to take the International Championship away from you, come hell or high water. Nobody is better than Will Ospreay because I am on another level.

Strong responded: “Will, the time for screaming and yelling is over. There’s just one thing I want to know. How’d it feel? How’d it feel when you lost that power in your arms when the big man hit you? How did it feel when you laid there in a pool of your own blood? How did it feel when you looked up at me and realized you stand no chance? Cause I know it felt great for me. But how’d it feel for you? You see, at Double or Nothing, I prove to the world once again what we already know, that I’m the Messiah of the Backbreaker. I am a wrestling legend. At Double or Nothing, the Assassin falls to the Messiah.
