Will Ospreay has revealed who he wants to face at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door on June 26 from Chicago’s United Center.
Appearing on Wresthings, the former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion discussed the upcoming joint show from All Elite Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling.
Despite a number of dream matches at his disposal, Ospreay desires to face a homegrown AEW star.
When discussing who he would like to face at the event, he said:
“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.'”
While many fans would love to see Will Ospreay face former AEW World Champion Kenny Omega, he explained that the two men are not on good terms any longer in this same interview.
