Update: Jeff Cobb made his AEW Dynamite debut last night but it’s not exactly confirmed that he signed a full-time contract with All Elite Wrestling.

PWInsider.com is reporting Cobb is still technically a free agent, despite his appearance on last night’s show. Cobb, a former ROH World Television Champion, is still set to work some dates for Ring Of Honor and New Japan Pro-Wrestling. Cobb’s deal with ROH expired at the end of 2019 and it was noted that as of press time he hadn’t signed with AEW, and had been working with ROH on a per-show basis. It was also noted that despite Cobb’s debut last night and ties to ROH and NJPW, this should not be taken as a sign that AEW has a working relationship with either promotion.

Pro Wrestling Sheet‘s Ryan Satin is also reporting Cobb’s agreement with AEW might only be for a few appearances at this time. Sources close to the situation claimed he was only booked for a few shows, one of which is his match against Moxley next week.


The Inner Circle has a new hired gun in Jeff Cobb, and he’s got Jon Moxley in his sights.

During AEW Dynamite tonight, Chris Jericho announced that there’s another roadblock in Jon Moxley’s way. He’ll have to go one-on-one with New Japan Pro-Wrestling and indie wrestling star Jeff Cobb next week. This marks Cobb’s first match in AEW.

Cobb ended up appearing at the close of the show, joining in on the attack on Moxley by the Inner Circle.

Cobb made a name for himself as Matanza Cueto in Lucha Underground, and he has worked under his real name since then for Ring Of Honor, New Japan Pro-Wrestling and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, among other independent promotions.
