In a recent episode of AEW Dynamite, the wrestling world was left in shock when Will Ospreay, one of New Japan Pro Wrestling’s (NJPW) top stars, made a startling revelation.
During a pivotal segment of the show, Ospreay announced that his contract with NJPW would be concluding in a mere six months.
Ospreay and Jericho’s Electric Face-off on AEW Dynamite
The announcement came amidst a charged segment involving Chris Jericho, another wrestling legend. The two are set to face off at AEW All In London, an event that promises to be a spectacle given the history and tension between the two wrestlers.
The intensity reached its peak during their contract signing on AEW Dynamite.
Jericho, never one to hold back, commented on Ospreay’s illustrious career. He reminisced about a time when he had advised a younger Ospreay to moderate his in-ring style for the sake of longevity in the business.
It was in this charged atmosphere that Ospreay chose to drop the news about his impending free agency.
Ospreay’s Determination to Prove Himself
Ospreay’s revelation wasn’t just about his contract. It was a statement of intent. He mentioned his recent string of outstanding matches, suggesting that there’s a purpose behind his current in-ring prowess.
With his NJPW contract nearing its end, Ospreay seems more determined than ever to showcase that he stands unparalleled, not just in NJPW, but in the global wrestling arena.
He’s on a mission to prove that he’s the best wrestler in the world, irrespective of the promotion.
The Future for Ospreay
The wrestling community is now abuzz with speculation.
While NJPW would undoubtedly want to retain talent of Ospreay’s calibre, the looming question is whether they can match or surpass offers from other wrestling promotions.
Ospreay’s declaration on AEW Dynamite has certainly set the stage for a potential bidding war for his services.
