Will Ospreay Confident He'll Re-Sign With NJPW, Doesn't Want To Live In The US

Will Ospreay looks set to continue his run in NJPW

Although Will Ospreay's contract with the promotion expires in early 2024, the former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion is confident he will end up re-signing with New Japan Pro-Wrestling because he doesn't want to live in the United States.

"I'm very confident me and New Japan are going to work something out because I don't want to live in America. That's my full-stop thing. I just don't want to. It limits me. I'm basically saying, we'll sort something out," Ospreay said on Insight with Chris Van Vliet

After being asked what he still hopes to accomplish in New Japan, Ospreay added: 

"I just like doing it. I can always reinvent, I can always change it up. Right now, United Empire is real hot. Merchandise sales with us are real good in Japan, we're the number one faction in New Japan voted by Tokyo Sports. I can feel something that wasn't the best start with COVID and there was no reason for myself, Great-O-Khan, Henare, and Jeff (Cobb) to be put together, but we made it work. There was a bunch of things that always happened, but in the end, we finally got all the group together, 10 jewels make the crown. I can't walk around in Japan now without being stopped once a day without people doing the [hand sign] we just made up in the islands. We made a cool hand sign."

While he seemingly wishes to continue living in the United Kingdom, All Elite Wrestling could be an option for Ospreay if they are willing to provide him with a similar deal to PAC, who continues to live in the UK despite his AEW commitments. 

Ospreay has been a part of NJPW since 2016. He recently returned from injury in the promotion and he will face Lance Archer at Dominion on June 4 to earn a shot at the IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship held by Kenny Omega.
