Jeff Cobb Reportedly Turns Down AEW Deal For Another CompanySeptember 15, 2020
We finally know where Jeff Cobb has landed.
Earlier this year Jeff Cobb appeared for All Elite Wrestling and helped Chris Jericho and the Inner Circle. Cobb was brought in by Jericho to help take out Jon Moxley before their big title match. Cobb made two appearances for the company and lost to Jon Moxley in his only match for AEW.
After Cobb had his match for AEW we heard that a contract had been offered to him and he said at the time he was not looking to sign with any one company and was working with AEW, ROH, New Japan, and others. Now seven months later it is being reported that he has signed with a single company.
According to Dave Meltzer on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer stated that it looks like Cobb has signed with New Japan Pro Wrestling. Meltzer said a goal of Cobbs has been to get a contract from New Japan. Cobb will be in the upcoming G1 Climax tournament and has been on the weekly New Japan Friday shows as well.
