After a critically acclaimed match at NJPW Best of the Super Juniors night 6, NJPW talents Will Ospreay and Ricochet were getting quite a bit of attention online for their efforts. Not all of it was positive, however.
Former WCW and IWGP Heavyweight Champion Big Van Vader took to Twitter to criticize the two performers. Admittedly, Vader saw only a .gif image of the match, and not the actual match itself.

Ricochet, who also performs for Lucha Underground under the name Prince Puma, responded to Vader's criticisms.
At last night's Best of the Super Juniors show, Will Ospreay responded in his own, unique way.
