Will Ospreay defeated former Impact Wrestling World Champion Josh Alexander in the main event of Thursday’s episode of Impact Wrestling.
Following the match, Ospreay cut a promo on his desire to compete in TNA Wrestling, and now that Impact is rebranding back to TNA, he would finally have the opportunity to fulfill his dream.
Ospreay said, “Listen, if anybody knows the story of Will Ospreay, a 14-year-old Will was channel flicking around Sky and he saw the very first match I ever saw. Christopher Daniels [vs.] Samoa Joe [vs.] AJ Styles. That match made me want to become a professional wrestler and I wanted to come to Impact for a very, very long time.
I’m very thankful to everybody for allowing me to come back because I honestly thought Impact was done. There was no saving Impact Wrestling, but that new ownership came along, and the talent backstage… It should be spoken loud and clear that the staff back there and all the roster are the reason why this place is thriving. I didn’t want to come to Impact Wrestling. I wanted to come to TNA Wrestling. Before I rounded this up, before February strikes, you better make sure that as much as I love Impact, I need to step foot in a TNA ring.”
Ospreay’s contract with NJPW expires in February of next year.
It was announced on Thursday’s episode of ROH TV that Ethan Page will face Tony Nese on next week’s show.
The match was set up in a backstage segment where Page challenged Nese to a rematch of their last encounter, which Nese won via dishonorable tactics. Nese accepted Page’s challenge.
