Jeff Cobb denies rumors that he has signed with Ring Of Honor

Former Lucha Underground star Jeff Cobb was recently interviewed by Uproxx to talk about several professional wrestling topics. Cobb discussed the rumors about him signing with Ring Of Honor, if he’s looking to sign with a bigger company, his cryptic Tweet, and transitioning from MMA. Here are the highlights:

Rumors that he has signed with ROH:

“Internet websites. Don’t get me started on that. Those guys were like, “Oh hey, Jeff Cobb signed with ROH?” Really, I did? I wish I would have known. That would’ve been great. But yeah, some people say I signed…

“When I called them out on it they said, “No, Dave Meltzer said you did.” I was like, “No, Dave Meltzer didn’t say I did. He said I’m working with them.” There’s a difference between working and signing with them.”

If he’s looking to sign with a bigger company and his cryptic Tweet:

“Yeah, something definitely – Follow my Twitter, @RealJeffCobb, and I’ll be saying something soon, real soon… hence my recent twitter post of “#CrypticTweet.”

“Because everybody wants to do that, right? I didn’t put out one of those tweets that’s like, “Hey, I plan to make an impact somewhere doing some entertainment, perhaps with some honor that’s new.” I didn’t put that kind of cryptic tweet, but yeah, you’ll see me pop up somewhere, sign somewhere.”

Transitioning from MMA:

“That was tough… When you’re doing like the quote-unquote shoot, amateur wrestling you’re taught not to show weakness because, like, if my arm hurts, and I’m in a match, the guy’s going to go after my arm, or if my calves are cramping up or whatever, they’re going to go after my weakness and exploit it.

“Same thing with UFC. If you punch someone in the eye and their eye swells you’re going to attack that side because they can’t see. So that’s the same thing, but on the tail end of that, in pro wrestling, if you’re, like, hurt, instead of toughing up and not showing the weakness you’re going to exploit it and be that much more over the top about my arm or my leg or whatnot, so that was definitely the hard part of the transition to pro wrestling… to the quote-unquote selling side of it was very foreign to me.”
