Kenny Marquez, who wrestles under the name of Jake Atlas has signed a developmental contact with WWE. Currently, Atlas holds the PCW Ultra Light and APW Universal championships.
Recently, Jake Atlas competed in Pro Wrestling Guerrilla’s Battle of Los Angeles last month, losing in the second round to Dragon Lee. Following his performance at PWG BOLA, companies such as All Elite Wrestling and Ring of Honor would show interest in him, with the latter reportedly offering him a contract.
Earlier this morning, Last Word on Wrestling broke the story, with claims that Triple H called him and that the contract was offered to Atlas at PWG. However, according to SoCalUncensored.com their sources claim this is untrue.
Jake Atlas is expected to report to WWE’s Performance Center in early January.
