Will Ospreay comments on his future in wrestling.
It's no secret that Will Ospreay's contract with New Japan Pro Wrestling is up in early 2024. Although many fans continue to speculate about his future with the promotion, Ospreay himself has noted that he is likely to end up staying with NJPW in the long run.
In a new exclusive interview with Fightful, Ospreay once again talked about his contract status and noted that while he is happy with his ranking in NJPW, he'd be a fool not to hear other people out.
"A lot of it just comes with confidence, I think. I find myself in a really lovely position with New Japan where I’m very happy doing what I’m doing. Obviously I’m a fool not to hear people out. It does come with the fact I feel like I do get everyone’s best performance out of them. I’m very confident in my abilities. I do lack in certain things, like I’m not the biggest fan of my promos. I know I need to work on that. I can’t do a promo without swearing. So that’s gonna be a real hard thing with an American audience. But I’m always willing to challenge myself. I like putting it out there because I feel like it gets people on their feet and their toes getting ready. The same to my company as well. I want them to be ready for what might be my termination of my contract. Who knows? I love to imagine that we are going to work something out, but I’d be a fool not to hear everybody out."
The 'Commonwealth Kingpin' also went on to talk about living in the United Kingdom and how that factors into his traveling schedule for NJPW.
"I’m heading out Friday, land Friday, Saturday is a meet and greet and a press conference, Sunday’s the match, I’ll have Monday out there with the missus so we can go to Venice Beach and then perv on her a little bit," Ospreay said while chatting with Fightful. "I’ve gotta perv on her a little bit. Leave out Tuesday. I come home Wednesday. I’ve got Thursday / Friday off, then Saturday / Sunday / Monday I go back to Progress. I just like working in England a lot. I like living here. I don’t really want to stretch out. I lived in Japan for two years and I did say after that, that was a real culture shock. I definitely could live in America, but every time I go there, man, it’s a real anxiety going there just because it’s so big. I get proper nervous going there.
Elsewhere in the interview, Ospreay discussed AEW All In and the rumors that he's currently booked for the show. Fans can learn more here.
