NJPW World TV Champion Jeff Cobb has thrown down the gauntlet following his successful title defense against Tomohiro Ishii at NJPW Dominion.

In a bold statement during his post-match press conference, Cobb dared top-tier wrestlers to step up and challenge him. “If you’re Elite, challenge me. Bring it on. The big shiny golden belt that symbolizes NJPW TV is calling. I’ll make you famous,” Cobb proclaimed.

This challenge comes on the heels of Cobb’s recent appearance on AEW Dynamite on May 15th, where he teamed up with Kyle Fletcher to face the formidable Blackpool Combat Club, consisting of Bryan Danielson and Jon Moxley.

Cobb’s performance in AEW, coupled with his dominance in NJPW, positions him as a formidable force in the wrestling world, ready to take on the best from any promotion.


As fans and wrestlers alike speculate on who might answer Cobb’s call, the wrestling community eagerly awaits what could be some of the most exciting matches in the sport.
