Cobb isn't thinking much about Michael Elgin's comments.
He spoke to Wrestling Inc. over the situation between him and Elgin where private direct messages were released on Twitter with Elgin tearing down Cobb, saying he stole the spotlight and had to cancel sponsors over him. Cobb is aware of the comments Elgin made about him, but didn't lose sleep over it. The key to it all is to not think about the stupidity of the situation, because at the end of the day you can't please everyone:
You know what, those kind of things - I try not to get involved in that. Wrestling, you know, even though you're not a wrestler yourself you've heard all the negativity of being a part of pro wrestling. There's so much negativity in it. I just take it for what it is and I just go on. I'm not going to dwell on it. In my opinion, you can't please everyone," he said. "If someone doesn't like you then they don't like you, it's not a problem. I personally don't care, I'm not going to lose any sleep - I didn't lose sleep over it. In fact, I kind of turned it into a T-Shirt and made some good sales off of that (laughs). I just kind of took it in stride, it's just not going to do anything to feed the negativity. I just kind of went about my ways - I think what really helped me too was being born and raised in Hawaii where we're all laid back and we don't really dwell in the stupidity of certain things. I definitely attribute that to being from Hawaii.
It isn't known if Jeff Cobb will be back in New Japan anytime soon. But in the meantime, he's PWG tag team champions with his regular tag team partner Matt Riddle, and will continue to defend those titles and wrestle in North America.
