New Japan Pro Wrestling star Will Ospreay recently revealed the ‘type’ of opponent he wants to face at the Forbidden Door PPV event.
Forbidden Door will be an NJPW x AEW event pitting the two rosters against each other for one-night-only in June 2022.
Speaking on the WRESTHINGS podcast, Ospreay revealed that he wants to face a “homegrown” talent from the promotion, rather than someone like CM Punk.
“I would like a challenge and what I mean by that is I would like a homemade guy,” the former IWGP World Champion began.

“Like someone that didn’t come from NXT, that didn’t come from New Japan, because I think that’s the challenge.
“Can I do like a sick match with someone that was born and made in AEW? … Jungle Boy, I’d love to tear it up with him” Ospreay continued.
“I love the product I think it’s brilliant, it makes me excited to be a wrestling fan, so the real challenge for me is, there’s obviously guys on there like Keith Lee. Mox, that would be a hell of a thing.
“Dante [Martin] would be a good one … But I would just really like somebody who was grassroots because you’ve got all these star guys all these guys there, the dream ones” Ospreay revealed.
