Jeff Cobb def. Cash Wheeler
Cash Wheeler faced Jeff Cobb in the main event of this week’s episode of AEW Rampage. Before the match, Mark Henry interviewed both wrestlers. Wheeler admitted that he’s a tag team wrestler and competing in singles action isn’t exactly his forte. Cash added that Jeff Cobb is a real tough opponent but he will never back down from a fight.
Cash noted that FTR have a chance to make history in the winner’s take all match this Sunday at Forbidden Door. Jeff Cobb stated that he respects FTR but they run their mouths too much about wanting more gold. Cobb claimed that he and the Great-o-Khan will leave Forbidden Door with all the gold.
Wheeler and Cobb locked up in the middle of the ring to start off the match. Jeff showed off his strength and shoved him down. Wheeler tried to lock in a headlock but Cobb was too strong. Cash went for a shoulder tackle but Cobb barely moved. Cash connected with a Dropkick and got the headlock applied as Chris Jericho announced that Jeff Cobb was his “Sports Entertainer of the Week”.
Cobb escaped the headlock and applied one of his own. Cash escaped and connected with a Dropkick. Jeff responded with a Suplex and Wheeler rolled out of the ring to regroup as Rampage went to the final commercial break of the night. When Rampage returned, Jeff Cobb was still in control of the match. Wheeler went for a Tornado DDT but Cobb blocked it. Cobb went for Tour of the Islands but Cash countered into a cradle for a near fall.
Jeff lifted Cash up for a Powerbomb but Wheeler was able to counter into a Hurricanrana. Wheeler went for the cover but Jeff powered out at two and the match continued. Cobb then planted Wheeler with the Tour of the Islands for the pinfall victory.
After the match, absolute chaos broke out as Will Ospreay battled with Orange Cassidy on the entrance ramp. Eddie Kingston then attacked Jericho on commentary as Rampage went off the air.
