In a recent development reported by Wrestling Observer Radio, celebrated professional wrestler Will Ospreay has been scheduled to perform at the upcoming AEW All-In pay-per-view event. The event is set to be held on Sunday, August 27, at the iconic Wembley Stadium in London, England.
There's yet to be definitive news about who Ospreay will be against at All In. However, the word on the street suggests that a third head-to-head matchup between Ospreay and IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega might be on the cards this year.
Before this potential clash, Ospreay will immediately focus on his match against NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Champion Hiroshi Tanahashi at the NJPW Resurgence event on May 21. The winner of this bout is slated to face Lance Archer at NJPW Dominion on June 4.
The victor of the Dominion match will be the newly minted #1 contender for Omega's IWGP United States Heavyweight Title. This title match is expected to be a part of the AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door event on June 25, although official confirmation is pending.
Ospreay vs. Omega: Past Encounters
Interestingly, this won't be the first time Ospreay and Omega have locked horns in the ring. Their first encounter occurred on December 12, 2015, at PWG All-Star Weekend XI, where Omega emerged victorious.
They faced off again this past January at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 17, where Omega seized the IWGP United States Heavyweight Title. Speaking about the possibility of performing at All In, Ospreay recently told DAZN, "It's 45 minutes from where I live.
If you want the best chance of selling that place, you need to have your finger on every pie. If there is a spot, I'd forever be grateful to walk down Wembley Stadium and find a way of sneaking my parents into the stadium." Ospreay has already participated in six matches for AEW, marking his debut with a match alongside Aussie Open.
Despite his non-permanent status with AEW, Ospreay remains optimistic about seizing any potential opportunity to perform at All In.
