– During a recent interview with Adrian Hernandez ahead of last Sunday’s AEW Double or Nothing, Will Ospreay discussed his goals as a talent in AEW. Below are some highlights (via WrestlingInc.com):

Will Ospreay on wanting to take AEW global: “I mean, my mission is I’d like to take AEW a little, like, global. I feel like we could look [at] All In and see what a huge success that was like 81,035 people, man, that’s nothing to be sniffed at. What more can we do? There’s a market in Australia … I [had] done a show in France for a company called Rixe and there was, like 1,500 people there just to see me, that’s a big number just for me. What if you had the entire crew? What if you had everybody like, obviously, you got that.”

On wanting to bring AEW to Japan and Australia: “I want to go back to Japan I’d like to bring AEW there … if we could do Australia, I’d love to do that, man. I just want to take AEW everywhere just because I feel like there is such a niche market right now, in every country there is a market for it so why do we not explore it.”

Ospreay has been on a roll as of late. On Sunday, he beat Roderick Strong to win the AEW International Title. On last night’s AEW Dynamite, Will Ospreay won the Casino Gauntlet. As a result, he gets an AEW World Title shot against champ Swerve Strickland at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door, which is set for next month. The event will be held on Sunday, June 30 at the UBS Arena in Elmont, New York. It will be broadcast live on pay-per-view.
