Will Ospreay’s transition to AEW last year sparked considerable discussion within the wrestling community, marking his shift to a full-time role on the AEW roster. In fact, WWE has been called out for fumbling Will Ospreay.

During AEW Full Gear, Ospreay made waves with a significant announcement, revealing his intention to join AEW as a full-time competitor following the conclusion of his commitments with NJPW, slated to wrap up in February.

This declaration instantly propelled Ospreay into the spotlight as one of the most coveted free agents in the wrestling industry. Despite engaging in negotiations with multiple promotions, Ospreay ultimately chose AEW, citing a more appealing deal compared to WWE.

On his “Wrestling with Freddie” podcast, Freddie Prinze Jr. called out WWE for fumbling Will Ospreay and not being able to sign him to a deal while praising his skills.


“WWE fumbled this so bad, and Will talked about this in an interview. He was like, ‘Yo, it was basically,’ and I’m paraphrasing, ‘it was an NXT contract, or it was millions of dollars at AEW. Peace.’

Ringside News also clarified Triple H’s perspective on Ospreay and the successful WWE deal. Despite the initial high expectations surrounding Ospreay’s talent, fans eagerly anticipate how he will be booked as a top star in AEW in the coming months.
