The Tag Rope caught up with Will Ospreay at last week's WhatCulture Pro Wrestling tapings in Newcastle. Things were going pretty smoothly as they discussed whether or not the EVOLVE contract he was personally offered by Paul Heyman had been signed yet, the current British scene and exactly where he was when he was presented with his contract for New Japan Pro Wrestling. Things took a turn when the subject of Vader was raised, whom Ospreay will face on Friday, August 12th for Revolution Pro Wrestling. They sent us the highlights below:

Wrestling Vader next week following months of feuding online:

"I've got such a problem with the guy because he's directed so much abuse at me, and the fact is now that he's been called out about it, he's saying, 'Oh, Will Ospreay could be good, Will Ospreay could be this'. And it's like, 'No mate, you got caught out because everyone's battering you'.

"Here's what's going to happen. I am going to f--k Vader up big-time. It's not even going to be a wrestling match; it's going to be a fight. And I am going to embarrass him, I am going to outflip him, I am going to do everything that pisses him off and I'm going to show everybody why wrestling has evolved, and the evolution starts with me."

EVOLVE's contract offer presented by Paul Heyman:

"It's a very selfish thing I'm about to say, but I need to think about me. And not just the brand of Will Ospreay. I've had other offers come in and I'm just trying to swim in an ocean full of talent and trying to stay relevant and trying to keep doing what I do. It's been an incredible journey and I want to keep it going, I want to help out, I want to do more things."
