Will Ospreay expects to stay with NJPW: ‘I just don’t want to live in America’

During an appearance on Insight with Chris Van Vliet, Will Ospreay addressed his contract status.

Ospreay stated last month that his NJPW contract is set to expire in February 2024. That led to speculation over whether Ospreay could jump to another promotion, but Ospreay clarified that he expects to come to terms on a new deal with NJPW.

Ospreay reiterated that while speaking with Van Vliet, noting that he just doesn't want to move to the United States.

"I am very confident that me and New Japan are going to work something out because I just don't want to live in America," Ospreay said. "That's my full-stop thing. I just don't want to."

Ospreay admitted that he's tipping his hand a bit by saying he doesn't want to live in the US.

"I'm basically saying, we'll sort something out [with NJPW]," Ospreay said.

Van Vliet asked Ospreay what he has left to accomplish in NJPW:

I just like doing it. I can always reinvent, I can always change it up. Right now, the United Empire is real hot. Merchandise sales with us are real good in Japan. Like, we’re number one faction in New Japan voted by Tokyo Sports and fans. I can feel something that — it wasn’t the best start with the United Empire because of COVID and everything. There was no reason for myself, O-Khan, Jeff [Cobb], and [Aaron] Henare to be put together, but we just made it work. There was a bunch of things that always happened, but in the end, we finally got all the group together. Ten jewels make the crown. So like, I can’t walk around in Japan now without at least being stopped once or twice a day [with] people doing the [United Empire hand sign].

While contracted to NJPW, Ospreay has made several appearances on AEW television. AEW and NJPW are joining forces for Forbidden Door 2023 in Toronto on June 25.

At NJPW Dominion on June 4, Ospreay is facing Lance Archer in the finals of a tournament to decide the next challenger for Kenny Omega's IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship. Omega won the title from Ospreay at Wrestle Kingdom 17 this January.
