Will Ospreay says his MLW debut "will happen" after all. 

A day after reports emerged that Ospreay's MLW deal had been nixed, both Ospreay and NJPW envoy Rocky Romero called those reports into question, and Ospreay went as far as to say that his debut with MLW will still take place. 

Ospreay tweeted:

"Lads MLW will happen. Just not when it was meant too. Everyone calm your tits."

The reports had cited unnamed sources stating that the working relationship between MLW and New Japan Pro Wrestling reportedly came to an end in mid-November, which meaning former IWGP Champion Ospreay would not appear for the company as previously announced.

Neither MLW nor Court Bauer have commented publicly about either the relationship or Ospreay.

In October, MLW announced that Ospreay would be debuting for the company in the fall, but didn't announce any specific date. At that point, they had a November event planned and later announced a co-promoted show with The Crash that happened this past Friday in Mexico.

Ospreay has been staying busy since returning from injury in August, working for NJPW in the U.S. and both RevPro and OTT overseas.

MLW next runs in January in Dallas, Texas.
