Jeff Cobb Says He's Happy That ROH Has A Platform Where They Can Showcase Some New Stars

Jeff Cobb is happy that Ring Of Honor's legacy continues to live and grow.

The NJPW star spent a year and a half with ROH from July 2018 to February 2020, during which time he held the World Television Championship for over 200 days. During a recent interview with Good Karma Wrestling, Cobb commented on the promotion being purchased by AEW President Tony Khan and being happy that they found a home after going on hiatus during the first quarter of 2022.

"Ring of Honor played a huge part in my career. I had a good nice year a half run with them. I got to meet and learn from some of the best minds in the wrestling business, guys like Delirious and Jay Lethal... When you think of Jay Lethal, you can put him in your Ring of Honor Mount Rushmore like some people do, just learning from him was such a fun time. Even before my time in Ring of Honor, Ring of Honor played a huge factor in professional wrestling as a whole. They had some of the best matches, I've witnessed, not first hand but from DVDs and the streaming service. I'm happy that Ring of Honor has a platform that they can showcase some of the newer stars. At the same token, hopefully we'll be able to see some of the old stuff as well. If it's a streaming service, that'd great because I would love to go back and watch some of the classic matches of Ring of Honor," Cobb said.

On Sunday, June 26, Cobb will be in action at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door as he and Great-O-Khan put their IWGP Tag Titles on the line in a winner takes all match against FTR and Roppongi Vice. FTR's ROH Tag Team Titles are also up for grabs in the bout. You can view the updated card for the event by clicking here.
