Jeff Cobb Attacks Kazuchika Okada At NJPW Summer Struggle
The feud continues
Jeff Cobb appeared to be set for a break from New Japan Pro-Wrestling, but that turned out not to be the case.
Cobb and Kazuchika Okada faced off at Wrestle Grand Slam on Sunday and while The Hawaiian Hulk battered the former IWGP Heavyweight Champion, Okada came away with the win following a roll-up.
Cobb announced after the match that he would be heading home to the United States, but the United Empire man is actually sticking around.
Okada picked up a win in six-man tag team action at today's Summer Struggle event but The Rainmaker had no time to celebrate as he was suddenly attacked from behind by Cobb. The former NEVER Openweight Champion then laid out Okada with a Tour Of The Islands.
With Cobb having reignited the rivalry between the two men, they look set to face off at a future event, possibly Wrestle Grand Slam in MetLife Dome.
Five matches took place in total at today's Summer Struggle event. Check out the results below:
• Yuji Nagata & TenCozy def. Yota Tsuji, Togi Makabe & Tomoaki Honma
