Slick Willy is coming to Chile.
Will Ospreay, the reigning IWGP United States Champion, has competed all over the world. He regularly wrestles for NJPW and RevPro. "The Commonwealth Kingpin" has also wrestled in the United States, as he performed on several AEW shows earlier in 2022. Now, his world tour will continue with his first stop in Chile.
Speaking on The Commentary Booth, Ospreay discussed what's on the agenda for him and the United Empire stable. He shared his excitement about the fact that "Slick Willy with a big willy" will be wrestling in Chile. He also looked forward to his upcoming match with Tetsuya Naito at NJPW Battle Autumn on November 5.
“I mean obviously, the conquest is always gold. We’re a unit of number ones. I don’t like the idea of slowing down. I feel like we’re getting a lot of momentum. Our merchandise was number one throughout all of this month for our collaboration with Justin Davis. We have been putting on a string of amazing matches, not just in Japan, but in England and in the United States. I would love to come back to Australia, I really hope so. I just got announced, I’m gonna go wrestle in Chile for the first time, so slick Willy with a big Willy is gonna be wrestling in Chile. I wanted to say that so bad. I’m very much looking forward to defending my United States Championship against Naito in Osaka," Ospreay said.
The NJPW star also made it clear that he's grateful for the opportunities that he has as a wrestler, and he appreciates the fans' support. He stated that he loves being a part of NJPW, and he's excited to keep performing for the people who support him.
"For me, it’s just insanely humbling and it was grateful, the fact that I’ve got oxygen in my lungs. I’m alive and I’m well, and I get to wrestle in a company that I truly love being a part of. I’m just looking forward to carrying on wrestling for anyone that’s ever supported me or anyone that has ever bought merch or even enjoyed one of my matches. I’m super grateful and I can’t wait to keep doing it for you guys," he said.
