In a press release, it's been announced that Will Ospreay is the latest name to be added to next month's Chris Jericho Cruise.
While the 'real' IWGP World Heavyweight Champion will be a part of this year's Rock 'n' Wrestling Rager at Sea trip, it has been specified that Ospreay will not be wrestling on the cruise.
"The hotshot Assassin is currently signed with New Japan Pro Wrestling and holds their former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion title, and he's also the reigning British Heavyweight Champion of Revolution Pro Wrestling in addition to many other impressive career feats.

In addition to the HUGE lineup announcement, we're also excited to share that the legendary Madusa will be taking on the role of Guest Cruise Director and Bully Ray is joining Brad Williams to tag-team as Guest Hosts! With the fate of the Triple Whammy's activities in these hands, you don't want to miss out on the best experience of your life!"
Having had to vacate the IWGP World Title earlier this year due to neck issues, Ospreay made his surprise return last month at the NJPW Resurgence special. There, he proclaimed himself as the real IWGP Champ, as he hadn't been beaten for his prize. Of course, Shingo Takagi is the current official IWGP World Heavyweight Champion.
This latest Jericho Cruise takes place between 21 October and 25 October, travelling from Miami to the Bahamas. Tickets and further information can be found here.
