Will Ospreay Believes He’s Improving At A Particular Skill In AEW

Will Ospreay

Will Ospreay thinks he is improving in a particular area as a pro wrestler in All Elite Wrestling.

After spending seven years developing as a wrestler in New Japan Pro Wrestling, Will Ospreay became a full-time wrestler with AEW in March 2024.

Since he started in AEW as a full-timer, Ospreay has won every singles match he has had while competing in an all-time great match with Bryan Danielson at the Dynasty PPV.

While Ospreay has had singles match success, he was on the losing end of a tag team match on AEW Dynamite with Orange Cassidy. The duo lost to Roderick Strong & Trent Beretta thanks in part to interference from Strong’s friends.

In an interview with Denise Salcedo of Instinct Culture, Ospreay says that he feels he is improving as a talker while in AEW.

“I would not put me down as a promo guy. I still don’t, in some ways, because I’m still learning. Where my ADHD has been a constant thing, I always have problems with eye contact. I really try to avoid eye contact a lot. I’m really trying my best to work on that and harness in on that and focus in on it.”

“The fact that I’m doing okay, I wouldn’t say I’m doing incredible. I would say that I’m doing better than what I expected. I’m am proud of myself for that just because I’ve never been a promo guy. I’ve never even tried to hide that I’m a promo guy. I feel I’m getting a lot better.”
