Jeff Cobb on playing the Matanza character in Lucha Underground:“At first I was kind of bummed about being under a mask. At the time when they (Lucha Underground) told me the character, I didn’t really comprehend or grasp what it was but at the time I was just looking for any exposure to get my name out there and I just figured it’s something to expand on me personally instead of just being the same person over and over in every indy company.”

Breaking glass during Dragon Azteca match: “I punched through the glass and was like awe cool, it kind of hurt and then I felt warm liquid running down my hand so it was very weird and then I looked down and blood was squirting out from my wrist and I was like awe crap… I was cleared like a week later and we ended up filming it (Dragon Azteca Match) like two weeks after the incident.”

WWE wanted me to get bigger: “Everybody wants to get to the WWE so I did a little thing with them and they wanted me to get bigger so, “X-Pac: Did they tell you that?” Cobb: Yeah, this is when I was only like 215-220 so I was like well I got to get bigger I’ll get bigger so I just started lifting more and less cardio.

Bucket list goal to wrestle in Japan: “I just feel my style would work there great. I think the Japanese fans would be really receptive too. Like, someone compared me once to Gary Albright obviously a shorter version and probably with better hair. I can’t grow a mullet. That is definitely on my foreseeable future list or my to-do list.”
