Former NXT Star Jake Atlas Keen On Signing For AEW

Former NXT Star Jake Atlas Keen On Signing For AEW

AEW has received criticism from some fans for signing too many former WWE stars, but at this point, very few people aren’t former WWE stars, something fans of AEW have pointed out.

The criticism doesn’t seem to be deterring the wrestlers themselves, as we saw this past weekend, with Ruby Soho, Adam Cole and Daniel Bryan all joining AEW al the All Out PPV.

The latest former WWE star, or former NXT star more specifically, to show an interest in joining Tony Khan’s promotion is Jake Atlas, who revealed in an interview with Denise Salcedo that he’s “obviously” interested in joining AEW.

“I am obviously interested in going to AEW. I have not talked to Tony Khan personally. Jungle Boy is one of my best friends. I feel like for the past two years we’ve kind of had to hide our friendship a little bit because we worked for rival companies. I love him to death. I think that our story is unique and I think our story is great. I actually went incognito to watch Jungle Boy wrestle Chris Jericho when I was working with WWE. It was in Jacksonville, so I took the drive up. He’s like a brother to me and I am excited to see what can happen in the future. Jungle Boy is someone who I am always going to respect and love, and I am always gonna root for him whether we’re in the same company or we never wrestle again. He’s doing amazing things, and I know that no matter what I decide to do, in wrestling or not in wrestling, he’s going to continue to support me.”

Atlas has also revealed that he had requested his WWE release prior to being let go by the promotion.
