Will Ospreay wants to return to TNA Wrestling in 2024.
The British star has been open about his love for the promotion which stretches back to before he even stepped in the ring. In recent weeks, Ospreay has been featured on IMPACT Wrestling television and got the better of Josh Alexander in his most recent outing.
Following his win over Alexander, Ospreay said he wants to return to IMPACT when the promotion reverts to its TNA Wrestling name in early 2024.
“Listen, if anybody knows the story of Will Ospreay, a 14-year-old Will was channel flicking around Sky and he saw the very first match I ever saw. Christopher Daniels/Samoa Joe/AJ Styles. That match made me want to become a professional wrestler and I wanted to come to IMPACT for a very, very long time,” he said. “I’m very thankful to everybody for allowing me to come back because I honestly thought IMPACT was done. There was no saving IMPACT Wrestling, but that new ownership came along, and the talent backstage… It should be spoken loud and clear that the staff back there and all the roster are the reason why this place is thriving.
“I didn’t want to come to IMPACT Wrestling. I wanted to come to TNA Wrestling. Before I rounded this up, before February strikes, you better make sure that as much as I love IMPACT, I need to step foot in a TNA ring.”
Is Will Ospreay Heading To WWE?
With his contract with New Japan Pro-Wrestling expiring in February 2024, Will Ospreay has been linked with a move to WWE. The in-demand star has been subject to rumours about a move to WWE for a number of years, but his desire to remain in the United Kingdom had previously been a stumbling block, however, he’s recently revealed he could be open to relocating.
AEW is also vying for the star’s signature, with many believing this will be where Ospreay ultimately ends up.
