Will Ospreay has made a handful of appearances for All Elite Wrestling as of late, but these won’t be continuing following Wednesday’s Dynamite.
The latest broadcast of AEW Dynamite saw Will Ospreay team with United Empire stablemates Aussie Open in a losing effort to The Elite’s Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks, who advanced to the finals of the World Trios Championships tournament. This, supposedly, will mark Ospreay’s final appearance for AEW – for now, at least.
Taking to Twitter, ‘The Commonwealth Kingpin’ confirmed that his time with the Tony Khan-helmed promotion is done for the time being, indicating that Omega had allegedly attempted to prohibit him from debuting for the company in the first place.
We are even for now Ken, keep your mouth shut & we won’t have any issues.

Issues between Will Ospreay and Kenny Omega have been noted for a while now, with Omega having sent a cease and desist letter to the United Empire man over his ‘Better Than The Best Bout Machine’ t-shirt. This came after Ospreay executed a One-Winged Angel on British wrestler Mad Kurt, pulling his arm up before the three count to throw shade Omega’s way.
Will Ospreay initially debuted for AEW on the 8 June Dynamite, joined by Mark Davis, Kyle Fletcher, and Aaron Henare. This led him to successfully defend the IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship against Orange Cassidy at Forbidden Door in one of the evening’s most beloved contests.
‘The Assassin’ is currently one of the top stars in New Japan Pro-Wrestling, recently making it to the G1 Climax 32 finals before being felled by ex-CHAOS teammate Kazuchika Okada.
