Jeff Cobb Announced For ROH 18th Anniversary Show

Adam Brooks, a popular Australian independent wrestler, was set to make his ROH debut against Slex at the ROH 18th Anniversary show on Friday, March 13, 2020.

However, it appears Adam Brooks is unable to make the show. ROH has said it is due to travel issues.

Jeff Cobb has been willing to face anyone from any promotion. He is one of the hottest free agents in wrestling and is drawing interest from AEW.

However, he seems to be interested in working for New Japan and is holding off signing any kind of exclusive deal. Here’s the full announcement from ROH:

Due to travel issues, Australian star Adam Brooks’ much-anticipated ROH debut will not take place at 18th Anniversary in Las Vegas this Friday, March 13 as originally scheduled.

With Brooks unavailable, ROH matchmakers have signed former ROH World Television Champion Jeff Cobb to take his place against Slex on the show.

Slex has faced nothing but top-level competition since arriving in ROH from Australia last month. In his three matches with the company, he’s been in the ring with the likes of Bandido, Marty Scurll, Flip Gordon and Brody King.

While Slex is still searching for his first victory in ROH, he more than held his own in every match and made a strong impression with Honor Nation. Slex also has caught the attention of Shane Taylor, who has attacked him on multiple occasions after his matches.

A win over a competitor with Cobb’s credentials would send Slex soaring up the rankings. You can count the number of times Cobb has been pinned in singles competition since his ROH debut a year and a half ago on one hand and still have fingers left over.

Cobb, who is willing to take on anyone in any promotion, wants to wear ROH gold around his waist again, and he knows a victory over Slex would strengthen his case for a title shot.

Will Slex be one of the rare few to defeat Cobb? Or will Cobb stand tall as Brooks’ stand-in?
