Jeff Cobb is just getting started after winning PWG's annual Battle of Los Angeles tournament.
BOLA is looked at as a major step stone for Independent wrestlers around the world. The tournament, which started in 2005, has been won by the likes of Ricochet, Kenny Omega El Generico (Sami Zayn), Adam Cole, and others who have used the victory to springboard into stardom.
Cobb added his name to the list on Sept. 16 when he defeated Bandido and Shingo Takagi in the finals. Cobb is not only looking to use this victory as a way to elevate himself, but to elevate Pro Wrestling Guerrilla as well.
“I plan to take this tournament win and use it to take the PWG title from a very large, fighting champion in WALTER," Cobb told Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated. "I want to win that title and keep it the way past champions have. I’ll do what it takes to elevate the PWG title to where it belongs.”
Aside from winning the tournament, Cobb stood out with moveset. A video surfaced of Cobb tossing around Darby Allin with a move that has aspects of Brock Lesnar's F5.
Cobb says that he calls the move the F5000 because “mine spins a lot more than his.”
The BOLA winner has had an eventful 2018. He made his ROH debut earlier this year, but has not signed with the company after being released from his Lucha Underground contract. He is expected to work for ROH and NJPW moving forward.
