Jeff Cobb has shared his belief that Ring Of Honor (ROH) is “in a good spot” during an interview with CBS Local.
Despite losing a few core roster members to different promotions, Cobb seems confident that ROH will continue and grow. He isn’t the only ROH wrestler to have this sentiment.
“I think we’re in a good spot,” Cobb stated. “A lot of people kind of have their naysayers, as when we had a core group of guys leave, and that’s totally fine. Every major sport has had that. Every major wrestling company has had that. Like LeBron left, “What we going to do?” So you start rebuilding. When they got Kyrie [Irving] and Kevin Love and all this.”
He admitted that, for the short term, losing members isn’t good for the promotion, but having to replace stars has long-term benefits, allowing ROH to develop new talent.
“[…] now we have a new influx of talent coming in, like myself included, guys like Bandido, and RUSH, and Dragon Lee, and Brody King, and PCO, and all those guys. Now they’re stepping up into more prominent roles. And now, we’re giving our ring a modern audience, a brand new roster to play with and see new guys, and new wrestlers, and new matches, and just new everything.”
He continued, “[…] now we get to showcase some more people who may have not had a chance before because we had star-studded lineup prior and we have a star-studded lineup now.”
Jeff Cobb is currently competing in NJPW’s G1 Climax 29 tournament as a Block B participant.
