Ospreay Wants to Face “Home Grown” AEW Talent at Forbidden Door!
The United Empire leader recently spoke about how he heard the news about the NJPW/AEW Supershow and who he’d like to face. Get the details below!
At this point in time it is still unsure if the former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion will be able to make it to Forbidden Door on June 26th as he is still fighting a Kidney Infection. This however did not stop him from sounding off recently on how he found out about the event and who he’d like to face. Forbidden Door was announced on the April 20th, 2022 edition of AEW Dynamite and Will Ospreay found out just like the rest of us.
"They didn't even fucking tell me it was happening. I was sat next to my Mrs. and was like, 'Are we doing a show with AEW?' 'Yeah' 'Oh, no one told me.' That's honestly how I found out. They don't tell me shit. For all I know, I'm not even on the damn show. I don't know," Ospreay said during a recent interview with Wresthings.
When the subject about who he’d like to face at the huge event, Ospreay stated the follwing.
"The obvious ones are (CM) Punk and (Bryan) Danielson. I like a challenge. I would like a homemade guy. Someone that didn't come from NXT, that didn't come from New Japan. That's the challenge. Can I do a sick match with someone that was born and made in AEW? That's something I would like to challenge. Jungle Boy, I'd love to tear it up with him. AEW, I love the product. It's brilliant and makes me excited to be a wrestling fan. The real challenge for me is, there are guys like Keith Lee. Mox [Jon Moxley], yeah, but this show should be 'let's go balls to the wall,' what are the dream matches? Okada and Punk, (Hiroshi) Tanahashi, Shingo (Takagi) and Hangman (Page) would be a good one, Kenny and Shingo would be a banger. Dante (Martin) is a good one, lovely young man. I would really like somebody who is grassroots. That's the mark. You have all these stars guys, they are the dream ones, Punk, Danielson, whatever. The guys that were there from the start, I would like one of them because I believe I can have the best match with one of them because they are hungry and are going, 'we should be in one of those spots.'"
Many fans would love to see Ospreay verses Omega at Forbidden Door but the point of the matter is not only is Omega still rehabbing from injuries, but Ospreay is not really keen to work with the Best Bout Machine, as can be seen in this article. At this point in time no matches have officially been announced for Forbidden Door, but one thing is for sure, fans are clamouring to find out what match will be announced first and when it will be announced.
What do you think will be the first match announced for Forbidden Door?
Who would you like to see Will Ospreay face off against at Forbidden Door?
