For the second time, Will Ospreay is IWGP U.S. Heavyweight Champion. He bested Kenny Omega at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door to regain the championship. Ospreay had assistance from Don Callis throughout the match.
After the show, Ospreay joined AEW President Tony Khan to take questions from the media. He stated that he feels him and Omega topped their match from NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 17.
He had a conversation about doing independents and said he’ll likely wrap up doing weekly independents this year.

He plugged the match he has with Shingo Takagi at Revolution Pro Wrestling’s Copper Box show on August 26th. Tony Khan chimed in and shouted out RevPro promoter Andy Quildan. Ospreay went to say he’d love to be a part of AEW All In on 8/27.
