Will Ospreay

Will Ospreay has arrived in a big way in AEW with a huge win at Revolution and now the English star has revealed exactly what his goals are in the company.

Will Ospreay signed his AEW contract in the ring at Full Gear but fans had to wait several months for the star to arrive as he finished his commitments with New Japan Pro Wrestling.

At Revolution, Ospreay was competing in an AEW ring for the first time as an active member of Tony Khan’s roster and he and opponent Konosuke Takeshita delivered an incredible match. Will Ospreay picked up the win over his Don Callis Family brother and will be hoping this is the first of many wins in AEW.

Will Ospreay Reveals Big AEW Plans

Speaking at the post-Revolution media scrum, Will Ospreay confirmed that he’s going to be a full-time star on the AEW roster and said he’s looking forward to getting to work with some of the best stars in the world:

My schedule is full-time, dude. I want to be here every single week, delivering the best matches that I physically can. This is what I’ve been preaching over in New Japan. The work that I’ve put out throughout all those eight years of doing it, it was the hardest thing leaving it. But this fits like a glove. This is where the best wrestlers the world are.

This is the most elite roster of all time. We are so blessed to be blessed to be living in this moment. I’m so blessed to have a dressing room where there are people like Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly and Roderick Strong and Takeshita, Sting, Orange Cassidy. I’m gonna have a Iong list of guys to go through, and I’m willing to tick off every single person, I’m willing to go to work. I’m looking forward to it.

Ospreay then noted that he’s in AEW for three specific things and current AEW Trios Champion Billy Gunn might want to watch his back:

I’m here for three things. I’m here to win world titles, retire Billy Gunn, and get a Nando sponsorship.

Retirement was on the mind of everyone in AEW and those who watched Revolution as the show saw the final match in the legendary career of Sting. Sting delivered one more iconic performance as he teamed for the last time with Darby Allin as they put the AEW Tag Team Championship on the line against The Young Bucks.
