The Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling Podcast recently spoke to PWG, Evolve and Lucha Underground standout Jeff Cobb. You can see the full podcast at this link, and submitted highlights transcribed by the Two Man Power Trip below:
Did he like the structure of Lucha Underground's season format and the unique nature of the stories told:
"I like it just for the simple fact that if another WCW came around it would get kind of boring so with Lucha Underground because it is different and unique and with (like you mentioned) characters being killed off nobody is expecting and I think it is something cool and something different. It is a definite shot in the arm that people are looking for."
What is his current status with Lucha Underground:
"I am still under contract with them and hopefully we will be filming season four sometime soon. They haven't given us the date yet so hopefully we will be filming soon because the fans want it, the people want it, the "internet wrestling community" wants it and I feel that we should definitely be giving it to them.I signed for the longterm seasons so hopefully you will be seeing a lot of me and my character around kicking butts and taking names."
How he became Matanza Cueto:
"Originally I was supposed to do a different character type or a shooter type of gimmick. I wasn't really fully grasped when they approached me with this character and I thought, oh man I've got to be under a mask but I figured I could show my range and do it and see what happens and I couldn't grasp or comprehend what my character would be or what he meant to the Lucha Underground universe and the storyline aspect of it but I am very happy that I was given the opportunity to play this character and very very happy with what the character has become."
