Turnbuckle pandemonium and power-grabs! Will Ospreay’s career is reaching new heights as the countdown to his contract expiration hastens. The astounding reputation his name carries has pro wrestling heavyweights like WWE already zeroing in to seize the opportunity, hoping to win the contract wars.
Ospreay, who once held the illustrious IWGP World Heavyweight Championship belt, had a shot at joining the WWE roster in 2016. However, in a gesture demonstrating his profound respect for New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW), he declined the offer. With his NJPW contract wrapping up in February next year, speculation is rife regarding his next in-ring destination.
The WWE Universe is buzzing with industry veteran Dave Meltzer’s remarks on Wrestling Observer Radio. Commenting on the Ospreay scenario, he admitted, “I know WWE is absolutely after him and he is absolutely going to listen to WWE. WWE is very, very interested in him. Of course, everyone is, and they should be.” Indeed, a figure as electrifying as Ospreay can’t escape the radars of wrestling tycoons.
Ospreay isn’t shutting the door on possibilities either. Recently, the high-flyer revealed he’s open to the idea of WWE being his next wrestling home. He’s not taking these negotiations lightly either, securing a top-tier agent to handle proceedings.
It’s an edge-of-the-seat situation, with fans eagerly waiting to see if Ospreay will bring his unique flair to WWE. Given his inherent skills and charisma, he could undoubtedly make a significant splash. But what’s your take, grappling gurus? Is WWE genuinely a fitting arena for Will Ospreay? Share your thoughts, and let’s keep our fingers crossed!
