The wrestling world is abuzz with the latest news surrounding Will Ospreay, a prominent figure in the industry. As his New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) contract is set to expire in February 2024, WWE has reportedly expressed significant interest in bringing him on board.

Ospreay’s name has been making waves in the wrestling community for quite some time now. His prowess in the ring and his ability to captivate audiences have made him a sought-after talent. Recent reports suggest that Ospreay has enlisted the services of Barry Bloom to oversee his contract negotiations. This move indicates that Ospreay’s next career decision will likely be driven by financial incentives.

In a recent interview with Alistair McGeorge of the Metro, Ospreay didn’t shy away from discussing the potential of joining WWE. He mentioned that the idea of moving to WWE is “on the table” and that he remains “open to all options going forward.”

Dave Meltzer, a respected voice in the wrestling community, spoke on Wrestling Observer Radio about WWE’s interest in Ospreay. He stated, “I know WWE is absolutely after him and he is absolutely going to listen to WWE.” Meltzer further added, “WWE is very, very interested in him. Everyone is, and they should be.”

Ospreay: His Recent Ventures and WWE News

While the WWE News of the company’s interest in Ospreay is evident, other wrestling promotions have also shown interest in the star. A positive stint at IMPACT Wrestling has led to rumours that Ospreay might consider signing with them, especially as the company is undergoing a rebranding back to TNA and will have more oomph in early 2024.

Ospreay’s recent match at IMPACT Wrestling Bound for Glory saw him give a nod to another wrestling legend, AJ Styles.

Ospreay’s latest appearance in an AEW match was during the October 1st WrestleDream pay-per-view. In this event, he teamed up with Konosuke Takeshita and Sammy Guevara to take on the trio of Chris Jericho, Kenny Omega, and Kota Ibushi.
