Jake Atlas Issues Statement On His WWE Release


Jake Atlas was among the 12 wrestlers to be let go by WWE this past Friday night due to budget cuts. 

Atlas posted the following statement on social media: 

“For 5 years, I worked hard to play the game the way I thought they would have wanted me to,” Atlas said. “If in that time I was able to accomplish all that I have with a limited understanding of who & what ‘Jake Atlas’ is, imagine what I’m capable of doing now that I get to do it MY way.”

Before joining the promotion, he was featured on an episode of CBS’ “Celebrity Undercover Boss” that also featured WWE Chief Brand Manager Stephanie McMahon. This is where he was offered a contract as a brand ambassador. 

Atlas later started training at the Performance Center where he would train in NXT.
