Kyle Fletcher and Mark Davis of Aussie Open joined Will Ospreay’s United Empire faction during the recent RevPro High Stakes event.
On the September 19 show, Ospreay successfully defended his RevPro British Heavyweight Title against Ricky Knight Jr. Following the bout, Ospreay continued to beat Knight down until Shota Umino ran down to make the save.
Aussie Open and Young Guns then ran down, before Fletcher & Davis attacked Young Guns and Umino to secure their places in the United Empire.
Will Ospreay took to Twitter after the defection with a photo of himself, Fletcher & Davis standing tall:

The stable was formed in NJPW following Ospreay’s heel turn during a match with Kazuchika Okada. Current members of the faction include Ospreay, Great-O-Khan, Jeff Cobb, Aaron Henare, and now Fletcher & Davis.
O-Khan and Cobb are both competing in this year’s G1 Climax tournament.
