**Spoilers regarding the NEVER Openweight Championship match at Wrestle Kingdom 13**
Last night, Will Ospreay challenged Kota Ibushi for the NEVER Openweight Championship at Wrestle Kingdom 13. There were several tough moments in the bout, including a moment where Ospreay hammered Ibushi in the back of the head with a running elbow smash.
At some point during the bout, Ibushi suffered a concussion. NJPW revealed the news in a statement on their website today. Ibushi did finish the match, eventually losing the championship to Will Ospreay in 18:13.
My reckless style has shortened not only my career but my life.
You all wanted change, so that I have a long career.
You’ve just shorten everyone else’s. pic.twitter.com/CCH4crEMcj

Ospreay took to Twitter today to brag about the situation, stating that he plans on shortening the careers of those around him.
Ibushi was stretchered out after the bout, though NJPW is saying, for now, that it was only a minor concussion and nothing too serious.
