Will Ospreay Wants To Be Part Of AEW For A Long Time, Feels Like He Could Still Be Wrestling When He’s 50

Will Ospreay looks down the road and notes that he wants to be part of AEW as far as 20 years from now.

Former NJPW star Will Ospreay has continued to cement his status as one of the top wrestlers in the world. He fully joined AEW in March 2024, and he won the AEW International Championship at AEW Double or Nothing.

In an interview with  Justin Walker, Will Ospreay discussed the future of AEW and noted that he wanted to be a part of it for a long time to come. He stated that he felt like he could wrestle when he’s 50 like Adam Copeland. (H/t Jeremy Lambert of Fightful for the transcription)

“You saw it straight away, there are things about it that makes it feels different,” Will Ospreay said. The fact that we’re able to constantly progress with the times and look at what we’ve done last year and how we can better ourselves. Right now, it feels like this is, without a shadow of a doubt, the most elite roster ever. It’s a five year company and still has growing pains to go through, but this is our growing pains.

“What are we going to look like in ten years time, in 15 years time, in 20 years time? That’s how long I want to be part of this thing for. I’m still young, still fresh. I definitely feel I can do a Copeland [Adam Copeland] and be wrestling when I’m 50 years old. I definitely think I can. Look at me, I look good, don’t I?”

Will Ospreay is set to defend the AEW International Championship against Rey Fenix on the June 11 episode of AEW Dynamite. WrestleZone will have coverage of the show as it airs.
