Jeff Cobb, Lucha Underground's Matanza Talks WWE Tryout, Japan, Being Put Under A Mask

Jeff Cobb spoke to Sean Waltman for the 1,2,360 Podcast recently. You can check out submitted highlights below, and the full podcast above.

His WWE Tryout:
"Everybody wants to get to the WWE so I did a little thing with them and they wanted me to get bigger. … Yeah, this is when I was only like 215-220 so I was like well I got to get bigger I’ll get bigger so I just started lifting more and less cardio."

Possibly going to Japan:
“I just feel my style would work there great. I think the Japanese fans would be really receptive too. Like, someone compared me once to Gary Albright obviously a shorter version and probably with better hair. I can’t grow a mullet. That is definitely on my foreseeable future list or my to-do list.”

Being put under a mask in Lucha Underground:
“At first I was kind of bummed about being under a mask. At the time when they (Lucha Underground) told me the character, I didn’t really comprehend or grasp what it was but at the time I was just looking for any exposure to get my name out there and I just figured it’s something to expand on me personally instead of just being the same person over and over in every indie company.”
