Jeff Cobb Says He Was Offered A Contract By The WWE

November 18, 2021

In his earlier years, Jeff Cobb trained for the Guam Amateur Wrestling Federation qualified for the Guamanian squad in the men’s 84 kg class at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, since the Cobb has made his way through the pro wrestling indies circuit and more recently has competed for New Japan Pro Wrestling and AEW. now it has been revealed that the WWE had tried to acquire Cobbs services but he declined their offer.

During an appearance on the All Real Wrestling Podcast, Jeff Cobb did confirm that he was given a contract offer by WWE last year when his ROH contract had expired. 

While he didn’t accept it, he did agree to sign with NJPW because he felt like he was a better fit for the promotion. Cobb said,

“I did get contract offers from other places but at the end of the day, it was — you know like — I mean WWE offered me a contract, great money but, at the end of the day, you know, it’s — money is gonna make a lot of your problems go away but at the end of the day, money won’t make you happy so I wanted to work somewhere where I felt like I fit in more and I would’ve been happy. You know, if I went to WWE, I wouldn’t be able to do a random indie booking if I wanted to if I was off that weekend or something. New Japan, I love Japan. The culture is amazing out there and the style of wrestling, like you mentioned, I definitely feel like I fit better in and I felt at the time, you know, New Japan was gonna be my home and it is my home. That’s not to take anything away from other companies that offered me contracts. But because I am with New Japan and with this quote-unquote forbidden door, you know, I’m still able to pop up on like an AEW or a Ring of Honor or MLW or IMPACT if the time’s right so, I felt like I made the right choice.”

Cobb made a special appearance for MLW at last night’s War Chamber show teaming up The HammerHeads to face off against Contra.
