Re: Official ROH Discussion Thread
I'm not very high on Cobb so I'm naturally a bit biased, but I don't feel like he is someone who can do "more". We can all shit on RoH's booking and all that, but I watched entirety of his TV champ run and he had decent matches and was super protected. Yet at no point he had anything going. Rush and PCO, in essence, have same booking going for them right now and you can feel the electricity when they perform, I don't feel that with Cobb at all. Taichi also basically carried entire feud by calling him fat pig, which I didn't like at all, but hey, Cobb could have done something to respond
And no, I don't expect him to beat Taven because I'm not sure what he could do with main title if he was unable to do anything with midcard title. But lots of people like him so he'll probably stay up there in some form.
Entire title vs title match was a bit pointless in the first place since clearly NJPW wanted Ospreay without a belt and didn't want him to lose to Taichi. So enter Cobb who was credible enough to beat Ospreay and then could lose to Taichi.
