Jeff Cobb, who currently works with NJPW, was a former ROH Television Champion who worked with the company from 2018-2020. Now, he is happy that ROH has a platform to showcase new stars.
Jeff Cobb sat down with Good Karma Wrestling, where he discussed ROH being purchased by Tony Khan & how they found a home after being on hiatus.
Ring Of Honor played a huge part in my career. I had a good nice year a half run with them. I got to meet and learn from some of the best minds in the wrestling business, guys like Delirious and Jay Lethal… When you think of Jay Lethal, you can put him in your Ring of Honor Mount Rushmore like some people do, just learning from him was such a fun time. Even before my time in Ring of Honor, Ring of Honor played a huge factor in professional wrestling as a whole. They had some of the best matches, I’ve witnessed, not first hand but from DVDs and the streaming service. I’m happy that Ring of Honor has a platform that they can showcase some of the newer stars. At the same token, hopefully we’ll be able to see some of the old stuff as well. If it’s a streaming service, that’d great because I would love to go back and watch some of the classic matches of Ring of Honor.– Jeff Cobb via Good Karma Wrestling
