Jeff Cobb has been one of the most coveted free agents around. After months of speculation and teases, the former Olympian has signed with New Japan Pro Wrestling, as reported today by source close to the company.
Jeff Cobb has spent the past few months teasing that he has signed with a new promotion after his contract with ROH expired earlier this year. Cobb also made an appearance on the February 12th and 19th episodes of AEW Dynamite. The former NEVER Openweight Champion has stated that he would not reveal which company he signed with until the promotion announced his signing.
However, with his recent appearances on NJPW Strong and participation in the G1 Climax 30 tournament, it seems certain that he has come to an agreement with NJPW. This is a huge get for the company over in Japan and he has already wrestled with a few guys in NJPW strong which is based in Los Angeles. His future will get even brighter and he will be a main event guy very soon.
