– Guam Olympic wrestler Jeff Cobb had a tryout at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando this past week. He told Guampdn.com:
“It was pretty much two-a-day workouts of just killing us and seeing if we were going to quit,” he said via telephone from his home in California. “There was a lot of people that had to sit out for a bit, be it from dizziness, cramping, aches and pains, but everybody made it through the three days, some better than others.
Cobb, 32, said getting a tryout in front of Bill DeMott, Billy Gunn and Dusty Rhodes was right up there with the Olympics as one of the biggest moments of his life.
“(The tryout) was one of the coolest things I’ve done in my life,” he said. “Being able to be there and seeing these guys you see on TV, seeing these legends that are there watching you do your craft and giving me feedback. It’s amazing.
“… The Olympics is one thing and pro wrestling is another thing. Both experiences are my top two so far, personal and professional.”
“… Everything was challenging. I took about five ice baths over the three days. It was great, but I was so beat up and sore.”
