Will Ospreay has only been a member of AEW for less than a year, and already the “Commonwealth Kingpin” has placed himself front and center on the recruiting train, helping to ensure that the very best talents in the world today cash their checks from Tony Khan.

The latest apple of his eye? That would be Ricochet, the “One and Only” who has been woefully underutilized by WWE after establishing himself as one of the greatest high-flyers in the world on the indies.

Speaking with Comicbook.com ahead of Double or Nothing, Ospreay lauded Ricochet for his incredible in-ring talents, putting it out there that he would happily work another match with him again, and would welcome him into AEW with open arms. Why? Well, because when it comes to Ricochet, he sets the bar for what it means to be a high-flyer in 2024.

“I keep up with him all the time, and sometimes I get a little bit sad about it. I hope he's not sad, and I hope he's real happy. I keep up with him as much as I can, but I feel like people are forgetting who Ricochet was once upon a time. All of these high-flyers that you see, and myself included, we all took inspiration from Pac and Ricochet. The fact that they only value his time for under five minutes is appalling to me. I just want people to remember who he is. If you go and look at 2012-2013 Dragon Gate Ricochet, he was untouchable at the time. When it came to this generation of high-flyers, he was the greatest. He's the greatest high-flyer ever. I know it sounds weird, but I do include put him on the same level as Rey Mysterio,” Will Ospreay told Comicbook.com.

“I don't know how much longer he has got in his contract, but I think it might be up soon, man, I don't know. I want him to know that there are people here that genuinely appreciate his work and I want to wrestle him again. I want him back here. I want him to know that there isn't a bar. You are the f**king bar. I just want to see him with more time and ability to showcase himself how I saw him. He's one of the best going, and if the opportunity presents itself, I think he should bet on himself. I think he should remind himself that he's one of the best high-flyers to ever do it. If it means he's got to come for me, then do it, boss, because I'm right here waiting for you.”

What would a Ricochet run look like in AEW? Well, I can tell you one thing: it would feature plenty of high-flying heroics, plenty of exciting exploits, and a prominent place on the card, which the “Highlight of the Night” hasn't been afforded since his program with Logan Paul last year. While the idea of leaving his partner Samantha Irvin behind might be a big enough factor to keep Ricochet in WWE, if his goal is to show the world once more what he is all about, joining AEW for another program with Ospreay is about as enticing an opportunity as it comes.

Even Will Ospreay is proud of his promo abilities.

After being largely lauded for his in-ring excellence during his time in New Japan Pro Wrestling, one of the most welcomed developments of Will Ospreay's move to AEW has been his blossoming on the microphone, rapidly developing into one of the best promos in the game today.

Discussing his efforts on the mic in an interview with Denise Salcedo of Instinct Culture, Ospreay noted that while he doesn't feel as though he's an elite promo guy, he's proud of his growth and plans to keep working on it moving forward.

“I would not put me down as a promo guy. I still don't, in some ways, because I'm still learning,” Will Ospreay told Denise Salcedo via Fightful. “Where my ADHD has been a constant thing, I always have problems with eye contact. I really try to avoid eye contact a lot. I'm really trying my best to work on that and harness in on that and focus in on it. The fact that I'm doing okay, I wouldn't say I'm doing incredible. I would say that I'm doing better than what I expected. I'm am proud of myself for that just because I've never been a promo guy. I've never even tried to hide that I'm a promo guy. I feel I'm getting a lot better.”

Alright, is Ospreay just being modest, or does he genuinely not think he stacks up with some of the elite talkers in AEW? Either way, after listening to him cut an absolute heater on Roderick Strong after AEW Dynamite, it's safe to say Ospreay is developing into an elite talker right before fans' eyes as he further solidifies his case as the best overall wrestler in the world today.
