Most updated (open source) software should not have any issues with it, including Wordpress.

PHP 8.0 do not support OpenSSL 3.0 yet, but JCloud have modified the PHP 8.0 code to work with OpenSSL 3.0.
This also means that curl and the ssh2 plugin will use OpenSSL 3.0.
OpenSSL 3.0 have removed some obsolete algorithms which may break extremely old systems.
