— Putting an end to widespread speculation about his future, NJPW star Will Ospreay officially signed a multi-year contract with AEW earlier this month, ensuring he can still fulfill commitments in Japan. Notably, both WWE and IMPACT Wrestling expressed genuine interest in bringing Ospreay on board. According to a report from pwinsider.com, IMPACT went a step further by extending a highly lucrative offer to the talented wrestler.
— The report reveals that IMPACT presented Ospreay with a “fantastic, massive offer” reaching a “seven-figure level,” implying a sum exceeding a million dollars, presumably on an annual basis. Sources within IMPACT observed Ospreay thoroughly enjoying his recent appearances with the promotion, leading many to believe he would sign full-time, especially after delivering a promo expressing his desire to compete in a TNA ring.
— Additionally, IMPACT aggressively pursued free agent CM Punk before he ultimately chose to make his return to WWE. This pursuit underscores IMPACT’s commitment to enhancing its roster and establishing itself as a major player, especially as the promotion transitions back to the TNA brand next year.
