Will Ospreay announced his decision to retire the Storm Driver 91 following an incident involving Bryan Danielson at AEW Dynasty.

In a recent tweet, Ospreay admitted feeling uneasy about using the move after witnessing the injury scare with Danielson. He wrote,

“I think the same amount of times Misawa used the TD91 in his entire career, I’ve either hit the same amount or about to approach.

It’s such a dangerous move that I was just spamming it and that’s when something can go wrong.

Bryan got extremely lucky that he got clear within 2-3 weeks but in those minutes during Dynasty, I’ve never felt more sick in my entire life that I hurt someone I really look up too.

In comparison to the Hidden Blade, it’s a strike. You can protect yourself if the opponent is able to cover up but the TD91 there is no way to protect yourself which is why it’s been banned in American TV wrestling since its inception.

Wrestling is wrestling aye it’s a full contact but I just don’t feel right tempting this move anymore.

Other lads can do it, but just through my eyes, I don’t wanna put anyone through that again.”
