The AEW Full Gear 2023 post-show press conference was interesting for Chris Jericho. One of the topics was Will Ospreay and his arrival in AEW. Jericho is delighted that they finally finished the job and signed this great wrestler.
“I’m really glad that Will signed with us,” Jericho said, as quoted by pwmania.com! “I was kind of hoping that he was going to, we had been talking about it…I talked to Will on the phone about it maybe a year and a half ago, two years ago.
The Wembley match we had was one of my favorites of the year and one of the best matches on the show, if not the best match. That’s what Will does”.
Chris Jericho on Will Ospreay
Chris emphasized that Ospreay had a great year behind him.
Now he will have a chance to progress even more in AEW. They know his qualities very well and know how to work with him. “I think this is one of the greatest career years for any professional wrestler ever. The thing I like about Will that he’s just tapping into, that we kind of got into before our match, is character.
He has a character that is very believable and I think that’s something he’s really going to get to focus on in AEW that you don’t get a chance to in New Japan because of the communication gap. I think this is the right place for him.
I think we know what to do with Will Ospreay. There are a lot of huge matches he can have here and t do the style he wants to do for as long as he wants to do it. To me, he’s one of the most valuable players in the world and one of the biggest gets AEW can acquire, so I’m excited about that”.
