Jeff Cobb Open To Working WWE Royal Rumble
Jeff Cobb would like a shot at the WWE Royal Rumble
The magic of the Royal Rumble means you never know who is going to show up, with everyone from legends and returning heroes, to cross-promotional stars and free agents likely to show up.
Now ahead of the 2023 Royal Rumble, New Japan Pro-Wrestling star Jeff Cobb has spoken of his desire to one day enter the fabled 30-man brawl, saying the following to the Ten Count’s Steve Fall on WrestlingNews.co:
"You never say never, but it all depends if the stars line up and all that stuff," Cobb said. "If they wanted me for some odd reason, then they would have to go through the right avenues. I don’t think they could contact me directly because I don’t think that’s legal. I’m not sure how those things work, but yea, I mean if they for some odd reason were like, 'We want to put Jeff in the Royal Rumble', I’m not good at Royal Rumbles and I don’t want to run down to the ring anyways, but if the stars align, I would be down for that."
Cobb’s NJPW roster-mate Jay White has been the subject of heavy fan speculation for a potential Rumble appearance this year, seven years on from AJ Styles' shock defection from NJPW to WWE at the 2016 Royal Rumble.
