Jeff Cobb To Appear In AEW Beyond Tonight's Episode Of Dynamite

The Hawaiian Hulk will be around for a little while longer...

On last week's episode of Dynamite, Jeff Cobb made his debut in All Elite Wrestling. At the end of the broadcast, The Hawaiian Hulk was invited by Chris Jericho to make his way to the ring and help them in beating down Jon Moxley. Jericho's hired mercenary did just that and delivered a vicious Tour Of The Islands to The Maestro Of Mayhem.

Despite being on the show, reports confirmed that Cobb had not signed a contract with AEW and is still a free agent.

AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes shed more light on Cobb's situation during a recent call with the media. He explained a potential deal with the former Lucha Underground star was "still in gestation" but hopes they can tie him down to a long-term deal in the future.

Some fans wondered if this meant Cobb was finished with AEW after his match on tonight's episode against Moxley. Rhodes quickly quashed these rumours, however, as he confirmed Cobb has more dates booked in with the young promotion.

Cody said: "Still in gestation. Jeff works with New Japan, he works with Ring Of Honor and now he works with AEW. I'm a big fan of Jeff Cobb because I like shooters in wrestling. I don't try to consider myself one with my limited amateur background but I think Jeff is a tank. He's a special athlete...I would hope that he maybe pursues a longer thing with AEW but I don't want it to impede on anything that he's doing in his soul if that makes sense. If he wants to travel the globe and do all kinds of stuff, have at it."

He later added: "We do have Jeff for more than just the Atlanta show, but I'd love to see Jeff in more of a long-term deal with us. He’s a special talent."
