Jeff Cobb Turned Down A WWE Contract

Jeff Cobb Turned Down A WWE Contract

Jeff Cobb was recently a guest on the All Real Wrestling podcast, where he opened up about WWE offering him a contract that he turned down.

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 also spoke about his time in PWG.

"A lot of people think that ten man tag I did on my first BOLA, like that video clip went viral with a thumb in the ass train thing. You know, that’s not my cup of tea but when legends in this business wanna do that, who am I, an unknown commodity to say no, right? I went along for the ride."
