Will Ospreay recently spoke with ESPN. He had been asked about going to WWE, he discussed his current contract status at this time.

“I am contracted. At the end of it, I’m with Ring of Honor, I’m with New Japan. I’ve got no choice. They say jump, I saw how high? Would I like to change? Absolutely, but I need to able to show them I’m worth something now, and this is how I’m gonna do it.

I’m gonna spend two years with Ring of Honor under contract, and then I’m gonna say, ‘Hey, I’m gonna do what I want to do.’ I want to be able to offer them something by going around and performing, not just at Ring of Honor, not just at New Japan, but the world. Does that mean I want to go to WWE? Not right now, no, ’cause it’s not what I want. I just want to be me and I want to be happy. My happiness comes way before priorities.”

Was that even in question? His deal with NJPW was 2 years and he's only been there just over one year. He signed his ROH deal after that. Honestly, being under contract that restricts his obligations is probably the best thing for Will right now. He doesn't have a half speed option and would probably be dead/crippled in a few years if he kept working the schedule he did before he signed

and WWE has been scared off of contract tampering now too.
