Wrestling legend Vader, who spent many years wrestling in Japan, was critical of the match and compared it to a gymnastics routine. Vader's argument is that Ricochet and Ospreay aren't wrestling so much as they're obviously working together to pull off a series of incredible spots.

Ricochet responded to Vader's critisim on Twitter, and was backed up by a number of fellow wrestlers.
"People don't understand that "professional wrestling" is an art. And much like any art, there are endless ways to express it. It can LITERALLY be anything the performers in the ring want it to be."
