Revolution Pro Wrestling – or RevPro UK – have announced Will Ospreay vs. PAC (formerly WWE Superstar Neville) to an immediately positive online response.
The 2019 incarnation of RevPro’s annual High Stakes event will feature the matchup many have talked about since PAC’s release from WWE. Ospreay himself demanded the match on Twitter many weeks ago, and has now set about hyping the bout on social media, stating ‘It’s time.’ PAC has yet to comment.

The show will take place on February 15th 2019 at York Hall in London.
The latter stages of PAC’s WWE career were frustrating for fans, as he was absent from television with no explanation. This was especially confusing considering his impressive run on 205 Live, including a lengthy stint as Cruiserweight Champion. It is still not entirely clear what went on behind the scenes to sour relations between the Englishman and WWE.
Ospreay, in comparison, has enjoyed a successful 2018, one which began in exciting fashion at NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom 12 event in January. There he won the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship, but is currently taking time away from the ring to recover from injuries.
This will be one of PAC’s first matches for RevPro, as the company was founded just after his start with WWE. He did, however, compete at a recent event in Portsmouth, wrestling ‘Speedball’ Mike Bailey. Ospreay, on the other hand, has appeared at every High Stakes event apart from 2017 – this year defeating Mark Andrews. The promotion was also the site of his infamous feud with Vader, as well as a number of matches with longterm rival Marty Scurll.
