Lucha Underground star Jeff Cobb recently spoke with Uproxx and below are some interview highlights.
There’s a lot of rumors that you’ve 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.
But you were in, last year – you were not the controversial one, but there was the Michael Elgin thing. What was your perspective on that drama?
My perspective on it was I could give a shit if you like me or not. I don’t envision everybody liking me, which is fine, totally fine, because I don’t like everybody in the wrestling industry, you know, you’re not going to get along with every-single-body. If he didn’t like me, that’s cool. I really wish he would have just told me instead of putting it up front, but again, it’s totally fine. I don’t care. I didn’t lose any sleep over what he said. The internet fans, on the other hand, did, the pro wrestling community, the wrestlers and performers did. I don’t care. Whatever. Everybody’s entitled to their opinion. I tend to stay away from drama. Life is too short to deal with that. I’m not in high school anymore. High school’s a long time ago for me.
Do you have, like, any number one person you want to wrestle anywhere?
Currently or historically, that you can’t wrestle anymore.
Currently, Samoa Joe, because I like his style. He’s very hard-hitting, and he’s a Poly, so, I have a tendency to go with Poly guys. And then, overall, definitely Kurt Angle in his prime
