Former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Will Ospreay has revealed that he’s interested in having a match against WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins.
Ospreay and Rollins notably had a Twitter back-and-forth which got the wrestling world talking in 2019, with the stars trading shots while arguing over who is the best wrestler in the world.
Speaking with Chris Van Vliet, Ospreay named Rollins as the wrestler who he’d want to face in a true ‘forbidden door’ scenario.
Believing that he and Rollins could make magic, Ospreay said:
“It’s probably Seth. After the little Twitter thing, we have to. It would be fun.
“He’s so over right now. You see the crowd singing his song, he’s mad. Especially from what he was getting, when we had our little thing.
“That was a mixture of bad booking and everything along those lines at that time. Now, it’s crazy. It’s mad.
“Iron sharpens iron. He’s so sick. Together, we could 100% make some magic.”
Ospreay is preparing to face AEW star Lance Archer at NJPW Dominion, in the finals of a tournament to determine Kenny Omega’s next IWGP US Championship contender.
While not confirmed, it has been speculated that the winner of this bout will face Omega at AEW X NJPW Forbidden Door on June 25.
Seth Rollins became the inaugural World Heavyweight Champion after defeating AJ Styles for the gold at WWE Night of Champions.
