Will Ospreay’s MLW debut postponed
In October of this year it was announced that Will Ospreay would be debuting with MLW at the end of the year.
However, it has since been reported that the plans for the NJPW star to join the promotion have been put on hold for the time being.
Ospreay himself has confirmed this via his Twitter account
Lads MLW will happen.—
Just not when it was meant too.
Everyone calm your tits.

In the meantime, Ospreay will face either Shingo Takagi or Kazuchika Okada for the IWGP World Heavyweight Title on January 5 at WrestleKingdom.
It has been confirmed by NJPW President Takami Obari that Ospreay will still be able to compete at the Japanese event, despite the Prime Minister Fumio Kishida introducing COVID-19 travel restrictions even though the NJPW star was out of the country.
