Jeff Cobb Comments On A Possible Return To AEW In The Future, NJPW, More


During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Jeff Cobb commented on a possible return to AEW in the future, working the G1 Climax tournament, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On being focused on NJPW right now: “New Japan is the right decision for me. I have a lot of unfinished business here in New Japan—tons of guys I have yet to suplex and tons of championships to win. I also respect what Tony Khan is doing, especially the level of excitement he has brought into the pro wrestling community and all the amazing crossovers going on.”

On a potential AEW appearance: “Having said that, will I show up in AEW? Right now, I have my sights set on the G1 and the IWGP world heavyweight championship. But if there’s something that interests me or the United Empire, you never know.”

On changing up his style over his career: “My mentality for wrestling has changed throughout the years. If you look at video of my first few years, I did all that flippy stuff and realized that was not me. That’s not going to win me matches—my background will, and amateur wrestling plays a big part in that. That’s why I am sticking with my game plan, and it’s taking me down the correct path.”
