Will Ospreay Wants To Face A 'Homemade' AEW Talent At AEW-NJPW Forbidden Door

Will Ospreay doesn't know if he'll be part of AEW-NJPW Forbidden door, but he has an idea of who he would like to face.

On the April 20 episode of AEW Dynamite it was announced that All Elite Wrestling and New Japan Pro-Wrestling would come together for Forbidden Door on June 26.

Former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Will Ospreay found out about the event just like everyone else.

"They didn't even fucking tell me it was happening. I was sat next to my Mrs. and was like, 'Are we doing a show with AEW?' 'Yeah' 'Oh, no one told me.' That's honestly how I found out. They don't tell me shit. For all I know, I'm not even on the damn show. I don't know," Ospreay said on Wresthings.

When discussing who he would like to face at the event, Ospreay said, "The obvious ones are (CM) Punk and (Bryan) Danielson. I like a challenge. I would like a homemade guy. Someone that didn't come from NXT, that didn't come from New Japan. That's the challenge. Can I do a sick match with someone that was born and made in AEW? That's something I would like to challenge. Jungle Boy, I'd love to tear it up with him. AEW, I love the product. It's brilliant and makes me excited to be a wrestling fan. The real challenge for me is, there are guys like Keith Lee. Mox [Jon Moxley], yeah, but this show should be 'let's go balls to the wall,' what are the dream matches? Okada and Punk, (Hiroshi) Tanahashi, Shingo (Takagi) and Hangman (Page) would be a good one, Kenny and Shingo would be a banger. Dante (Martin) is a good one, lovely young man. I would really like somebody who is grassroots. That's the mark. You have all these stars guys, they are the dream ones, Punk, Danielson, whatever. The guys that were there from the start, I would like one of them because I believe I can have the best match with one of them because they are hungry and are going, 'we should be in one of those spots.'"

While fans may want to see Ospreay take on Kenny Omega, Ospreay explained why that match is unlikely to happen as he's not on good terms with Omega. You can find his full comments by clicking here.

No matches have been announced for AEW-NJPW Forbidden Door. Ospreay is currently sidelined with a kidney infection.
