Dan Moloney has joined United Empire, and Will Ospreay shared his thoughts on the addition to the group.

Dan Moloney is a guy that was fired from NXT:U.K. back in 2019.— ᵂⁱˡˡ ᴼˢᵖʳᵉᵃʸ • ウィル・オスプレイ (@WillOspreay) March 26, 2023
The work ethic he put in after, throughout the pandemic, when the crowd returned & now is a real testament to the man he is.
Never took shortcuts, he showed up and grafted in a scene pronounced DOA.
