After another exciting PREMIER Wrestling event this past Friday at Del Mar High School in San Jose, the winners moved up in the Top 10 rankings and the losers fell further down. Sitting at the number one contenders spot is “Mr. Athletic” Jeff Cobb. Cobb improved his record to 5-2-1 and stopped his two match losing streak with a win over Dom “The Bomb” Vitalli (0-2) in a thrilling contest. However, as negotiations continue with various different venues for our next event, Jeff Cobb’s availability may play into when he receives his title shot.
As many have known, Jeff Cobb has signed with the Lucha Undreground promotion out of Los Angeles. Lucha Underground airs on the El Rey Network every Wednesday night at 5PM PST. “Mr. Athletic,” being one of the very best in the wrestling game today, was swooped up quickly by the young upstart Lucha Libre company. Lucha Underground tapes on a weekend basis for many months straight, thus Jeff Cobb’s availability is limited. If Cobb is unable to compete at the next PREMIER event, then the next in line for the title will be “The Golden Boy” Dylan Drake (4-3).
Dylan Drake defeated “El Pistolero” Julio Pedroza (3-3) when he reversed Pedroza’s victory roll for the pin. “The Golden Boy” would like nothing more to have the gilded PREMIER Heavyweight Championship around his waist. It would also be a moment of revenge. It was PREMIER Heavyweight Champion “The God of War” JR Kratos (6-2) who defeated Dylan Drake at PREMIER I in the opening round of the Championship Tournament back in March of 2013. Obviously, Dylan Drake believes a rematch against Kratos will see a different result then two years ago.
Stay tuned right here to PREMIERWrestle.com as we announce details on PREMIER IX in the near future. Whether it’s Jeff Cobb or Dylan Drake, PREMIER will continue to bring high level championship wrestling action!
