Jeff Cobb debuts on AEW Dynamite, faces Jon Moxley next week

This story was updated Thursday at noon Eastern.

In a surprise announcement on Wednesday's AEW Dynamite, former PWG Champion Jeff Cobb will make his promotional debut on next week's show against Jon Moxley.

While AEW World Champion Chris Jericho was doing a backstage promo directed toward Jon Moxley, he said he scoured the globe looking for a bounty hunter/assassin and next week, Moxley will take a tour of the islands. The following video then played:

The corresponding tweet said, "Jeff Cobb is all elite. Welcome to AEW."

At the end of the show, Cobb's music hit and he came out to assist The Inner Circle in a beatdown of Moxley to close the show.

According to Dave Meltzer, the 37-year-old Cobb hasn't signed a contract the company and at least for now, he is just in for this angle.

On last Sunday's ROH Free Enterprise show, he and Dan Maff earned an opportunity to take on ROH Tag Team Champions Jay Lethal and Jonathan Gresham on a future date. He and Maff will face the Briscoes at Bound By Honor later this month, and he, Maff, and Gresham will face the Mexa Squad for the ROH Six-Man Tag Titles at Gateway to Honor, also later this month. Meltzer said he's expected to honor all dates.

In January, Pro Wrestling Sheet reported that the former ROH TV Champion is working on a per-show basis there instead of with a contract.

Additionally, he was just announced for March's PWG 2020 debut against David Starr and has several bookings for WrestleMania weekend in Tampa, FL, including Bloodsport, Black Label Pro, and ROH's Supercard of Honor, teaming with Maff against KENTA and Ishimori.
