Anybody that is hoping to see Will Ospreay in a WWE ring will have to wait a good while before that ever happens.
Ospreay revealed in an interview with ESPN that he still has a couple of years left on his current contract. Ospreay also said that even though he would lime to explore his options, he did not say he wanted to go to WWE anytime soon.
“I am contracted," Ospreay said. "At the end of it, I’m with Ring of Honor, I’m with New Japan. I’ve got no choice. They say jump, I saw how high? Would I like to change? Absolutely, but I need to able to show them I’m worth something now, and this is how I’m gonna do it. I’m gonna spend two years with Ring of Honor under contract, and then I’m gonna say, ‘Hey, I’m gonna do what I want to do.’ I want to be able to offer them something by going around and performing, not just at Ring of Honor, not just at New Japan, but the world. Does that mean I want to go to WWE? Not right now, no, ’cause it’s not what I want. I just want to be me and I want to be happy. My happiness comes way before priorities.”
Ospreay is a mainstay in New Japan Pro Wrestling's junior heavyweight division where he is once again currently competing in the promotion's Best of the Super Juniors tournament, which he won last year. Ospreay is also competing in Ring of Honor, where he is a former ROH World Television Champion.
