The wrestling world is abuzz with speculations and rumors as the clock ticks down on Will Ospreay’s contract with New Japan Pro Wrestling. The high-flying, dynamic performer has made it clear that he’s exploring his options, and that has sent fans and industry insiders into a frenzy.
While AEW has long been seen as the likely destination for Ospreay, recent reports have thrown a curveball into the mix. Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio has suggested that WWE shouldn’t be counted out as a potential landing spot for the British superstar. “I would not say anything is definite with Ospreay, but people who think that it’s a guarantee it’s AEW, just put it this way, WWE is absolutely in the picture,” Meltzer stated.
Ospreay’s recent signing with Barry Bloom, the agent to several high-profile AEW stars, has fueled the AEW speculation. Additionally, his history of working with AEW talent and the flexibility the promotion offers in terms of outside commitments seem to align with Ospreay’s preferences.
However, WWE, the wrestling juggernaut, has always been an attractive option for many wrestlers. If Ospreay is looking to dive headfirst into the deep end of the wrestling pool, WWE might be his ultimate destination. As the wrestling world holds its breath, one question remains: where will Will Ospreay take his incredible talents next?

LA Knight: A Royal Rumble Snub?
LA Knight, a charismatic and beloved figure in the wrestling world, recently faced Roman Reigns at Crown Jewel. As expected, Reigns retained his championship in a match that was never going to end his title reign abruptly. The question now arises: what’s next for LA Knight?
According to reports, it doesn’t look like he’s on the fast track to winning the Royal Rumble or challenging Reigns for a title at WrestleMania. Some insiders believe that Knight has reached the peak of his popularity, and WWE might not have immediate plans for him in the main event scene.
While this news may be disappointing for Knight’s fans, it’s worth noting that he remains one of the most popular acts in professional wrestling, with a devoted fan base and brisk merchandise sales. It’s possible that Knight could still find himself in a significant midcard championship feud or an exciting storyline for WrestleMania.
Could a WrestleMania showdown between LA Knight and Logan Paul be in the cards? Only time will tell.

While wrestling enthusiasts may have their Mount Rushmore of wrestling legends, Cena’s endorsement of Reigns as the GOAT adds a compelling layer to the ongoing discussion of greatness in the sport. Whether fans agree or not, Reigns has undeniably etched his name into the annals of WWE history.
