One of the hottest rising stars in professional wrestling is a member of Ring Of Honor’s (ROH) roster. Former amateur wrestler Jeff Cobb currently reigns as the promotion’s World Television Championship. Cobb began his professional wrestling career back in 2009 in his native Hawaii. In 2015 Cobb signed with Lucha Underground, where he worked for three years under the name “The Monster.”

He has also done work for promotions such as Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG), Progress Wrestling, New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW), and of course ROH. He debuted with ROH over the summer and defeated a WWE-bound Punishment Martinez for the ROH World Television Championship in his first match with the company.

Recently, Cobb spoke to ROH for their “ROH 10 Questions” segment. When asked to explain why he chose to sign with ROH, here’s what Cobb had to say:

“I’ve always seen ROH and the quality of wrestlers that have come through there. There is such a rich history of amazing performers and talent that can’t be denied. Also, the relationship with New Japan didn’t hurt either.”

Cobb will defend his TV Championship against Adam Page at tomorrow night’s ROH Final Battle pay-per-view (PPV) in New York City.
