Report: Will Ospreay Drawing Interest From PROGRESS Wrestling Following AEW International Title Win

PROGRESS Wrestling interested in booking Will Ospreay

Will Ospreay is generating interest once again from independent wrestling promotions following his win over Roderick Strong at Double or Nothing to capture the AEW International Championship.

The International Title has previously been defended outside of All Elite Wrestling, particularly during PAC and Orange Cassidy's reigns as champion. Will Ospreay suggested at the post-Double or Nothing media scrum that he would be willing to do something similar, expressing his interest in putting the belt on the line outside of North America.

"I would like to do it... just once again, travel broadens the minds and travel broadens the spirit and I think that I could definitely bring back some type of... prestige back to the championship, for sure. I said it in a promo backstage - this championship was, the inception of this championship was on Forbidden Door, so to have that, this championship, to me, is the 'Forbidden Door,'" Ospreay said.

According to Fightful Select, there is "significant interest" within PROGRESS Wrestling to book Ospreay now that he is the AEW International Champion. Ospreay wrapped up on the UK indies ahead of joining AEW full-time in early 2024, and his final indy match saw Ospreay lose a classic to Michael Oku at RevPro High Stakes in February. 

PROGRESS Wrestling has undergone a number of behind-the-scenes changes in 2024 as the promotion merged with DEFY earlier this year. There has also been a change in creative as NORTH Wrestling owner Andrew Bowers was appointed PROGRESS Head of Creative in recent weeks.
