Jeff Cobb AEW Status Update
As noted before, Jeff Cobb made his official debut for All Elite Wrestling during this past Wednesday’s episode of Dynamite. AEW’s official Twitter account announced afterwards that “Jeff Cobb is all elite. Welcome to AEW” which is usually their signal of a contract signing being made.
Both PWInsider’s Mike Johnson and the Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer reported that Cobb has yet to sign an official contract with AEW and still remains a free agent.
Johnson reported that Cobb is currently only scheduled to appear at next week’s episode of Dynamite in Atlanta, Georgia. Meltzer reported in this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter that AEW has given a contract offer to Cobb but at the moment, his current priority is New Japan Pro Wrestling for work.
