NJPW's Will Ospreay Has No Plans To Go Through The Forbidden Door

Seemingly no AEW appearances for Ospreay

While Will Ospreay previously noted he was open to performing in All Elite Wrestling, The Commonwealth Kingpin has no plans to step through the forbidden door anytime soon.

Ospreay recently returned to Japan after spending the last several months performing in the United States and the United Kingdom for NJPW and other promotions and he unsuccessfully challenged Kazuchika Okada for the IWGP World Heavyweight Title on day two of Wrestle Kingdom 16.

Speaking at a press conference following the loss, Ospreay admitted he wasn't "going anywhere" until he main events another Tokyo Dome show. 

"I apologise to the fans that want to fantasy book but I'm not walking through no forbidden door seeing that door is firmly closed for me. And, I'm not signing my life away to someone else so I can get fired eight months down the line. I ain't going anywhere," he began.

"I'm back in New Japan Pro-Wrestling and I'm going to stay here until I main event another Tokyo Dome because I will and I will hold this championship once more. Until then, you can have it back. I don't need your help, I don't need any friends, I've got my brothers (Great O-Khan and Aaron Henare). This isn't the last you've seen of me."

Several NJPW talents have stepped through the forbidden door since AEW and New Japan formed a working relationship in 2021 and the likes of KENTA, Yuji Nagata, Satoshi Kojima and Tomohiro Ishii have all appeared on AEW TV.
