AEW Star Wants To Be Retired By Will Ospreay

Will Ospreay in AEW

Will Ospreay is a man in demand.

From being regarded as something of a prodigy to cementing himself as one of the best wrestlers on the planet, Will Ospreay is no stranger to being in demand. But a bout with an AEW veteran isn’t necessarily one fans might have had on their dream match lists.

Despite now being in his 60s, Billy Gunn remains a regular on television, and he’ll still step into the ring when required. And incredibly, he has no plans to hang up his boots just yet.

During a new interview with Chris Van Vliet, Gunn said as long as he’s still contributing, and fans still want him in AEW, there’s no reason for him to walk away. But when he does, he has an interesting proposition in place.

While discussing retirement, the WWE Hall of Famer said he wants Will Ospreay to do the honours.

“I don’t know what it is about that kid. I love him, I tell everybody that’s my retirement match. When I retire it’s me and Will, and he just said on some media scrum that he’s in AEW to retire me. [I love it] Because his work really isn’t me, it’s so opposite of me.

But I love him, he’s good, he’s very energetic. Just the stuff he does is amazing. He’s so athletic and could do so much stuff. But he has charisma with it and he’s very good at that. I love that, I don’t know, I just love that kid.”

Will Ospreay Pitched Defeat To Swerve Strickland

Meanwhile, it’s been reported that Will Ospreay offered to lose to Swerve Strickland in an effort to elevate the AEW World Champion. Ospreay is said to have been disappointed with claims that Strickland was nothing but a placeholder until he won the gold.

As a result, Ospreay offered to put Strickland over shortly after winning the International Title. The report claimed Ospreay wanted to prove that no one should be above losing to the World Champion.
