Cobb said he enjoyed being pursued by some of the different promotions, including AEW and WWE. In his words, it was nice feeling like the “Belle of the Ball”.
While he did appear for AEW, and in doing so made quite the splash, that deal never stuck together. For now, the star has opted to stick with his deals with both Ring of Honor and New Japan.
He didn’t share terms of those contracts, but it’s entirely possible he has an easy out if he wants to join up with one of the perceived “Big 2”.
One thing is certain, whatever he chooses to do, Cobb has his fans. He’d do quite well in either AEW or WWE, and it may just be a matter of time before it happens.
