We have Twitter in Connecticut… I feel like they may have had an idea.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but is this (allegedly) the first “bidding war” regarding somebody not signed with either promotion (so not Cody or Jade)? I don’t count Omega because there was about a million percent chance that he was going to AEW when his New Japan deal expired.
Sorry, I was actually wrong. I misread things. WWE had realized by this past week he wasn’t going there.
“As previously reported, WWE was interested in landing Ospreay. Sapp writes that WWE had been in contact with Ospreay’s representation in recent weeks in an effort to gauge his interest end see what kind of schedule he would want and whether he would relocate. Per Sapp, WWE sources “had figured by this week” that Ospreay was bound for AEW.”
