SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
International star Will Ospreay is set to make his Ring of Honor debut on the “Reach for the Sky” U.K. tour in November, ROH announced Tuesday.
ROH has wanted to book Ospreay as part of the ROH-New Japan working relationship. However, Ospreay has an exclusive U.S. booking deal with WWNLive/EVOLVE, which also includes select non-ROH indies.
ROH found a way around the situation by booking Ospreay for the U.K. shows. Ospreay has had a break-out year in New Japan, including winning the 2016 Best of the Super Jrs. tournament.
