WWE is “absolutely after” one of the top names in the entire wrestling world.
Will Ospreay kicked off 2023 losing to Kenny Omega at Wrestle Kingdom but he avenged that loss and won back the IWGP US Championship against The Cleaner at Forbidden Door in June. Ospreay made it to the semi-finals of the G1 Climax tournament before heading to Wembley Stadium for AEW All In where he picked up a win against Chris Jericho.
Ospreay recently revealed that his New Japan Pro Wrestling contract ends in February 2024 and the vultures will surely be circling for the man who could be the biggest free agent in the world at that time.
Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer confirmed that WWE is very interested in signing up Will Ospreay but they aren’t the only ones:
“I know WWE is absolutely after him and he is absolutely going to listen to WWE. WWE is very, very interested in him. Everyone is, and they should be.”
Will Ospreay open to move to the US – and possibly WWE
Recently speaking to Alistair McGeorge for The Metro, Ospreay said he’s “open to all options,” and he’s feeling more positive about living in the US after previously stating that he didn’t want to live in the company full-time:
”I mean, we have spoke about it more. I’m now open to the idea of stretching myself out that little bit more. As age has become more apparent to me and my body is hurting more and more, I’m open to all avenues. I’ve had a lot of talks with my friends about this, and I have spoke to the missus.
Although we’ve spent so much money on our new kitchen, we are open to the idea of relocating to the United States.”
Following Bound For Glory, Ospreay will also be a part of IMPACT Wrestling’s Turning Point show in Newcastle on October 27th when he is scheduled to take on Eddie Edwards in a first-time singles match.
