Jeff Cobb Talks WWE, New Japan, Moving To Pro Wrestling

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:

Possibly signing with WWE:

"I don't know right now and just for the fact to say that I don't want to work for the WWE would be a bold face lie. I'm never going to say I don't want to go there, I would love to make a really good living and wrestle and to train at the performance center and GOOD LORD if I had access to that Performance Center it would be amazing. But as of right now where I am at, I am just enjoying this time on "Independents" touring the world. With WWE you don't get to do that. You don't get to say I am going to take a booking in Ireland because you have to be at the Performance Center or when you have shows in Tampa. It is that give and take relationship of you are going to get great exposure and a good living but you have to be with them all the time and at this point there are a couple of things I want to do before I even go that route. I'd like to throw my hand in New Japan and see how I do there. Like people say, you never say never in wrestling and if it came up I would definitely have to sit down and take a big long and hard look at it and see what is best for me and my family."

New Japan Pro Wrestling: 

"I'd definitely love to go there. I don't have the height of some of their big bruiser guys like Dr. Death or Gary Albright but I definitely have that background so I'd love to try it out there and see what happens. It is a good goal to set."

Going from from amateur wrestling to pro wrestling: 

"I would hope that New Japan notices that so they could be more receptive on taking a chance on me. But it wasn't that bad. The physical side was fun and when I started pro wrestling I just had graduated college so I had just done college wrestling and was in really good shape so with the physical aspect of it of the running the ropes and the cardio and the squats were fine for me. The learning of the psychology of wrestling and selling and registering it was those kind of things that I had trouble with and had to learn."
