Will Ospreay returning to WWN over WrestleMania weekend


WWN announced this morning to Sports Illustrated that Will Ospreay will be returning to the promotion and wrestle two dates over WrestleMania weekend.

Ospreay will be on the April 5th EVOLVE show and the April 6th WWN Supershow. Gabe Sapolsky told Sports Illustrated that on the latter show, he's 90 percent sure that he's putting Ospreay against Matt Riddle. Ospreay and Riddle had their first singles match against each other for PROGRESS Wrestling last year.

Ospreay, voted Best Flyer in the 2016 Observer awards, has worked for EVOLVE in the past and both ROH and EVOLVE attempted to sign him at the end of last year. He signed a one-year deal exclusive for the United States market with ROH which has just expired.

He's a former IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion and is in a key match at NJPW's Wrestle Kingdom 12 show on January 4th, a four-way for the title with Marty Scurll, Hiromu Takahashi, and KUSHIDA.
