Jake Atlas Retires From Wrestling

Former NXT star Jake Atlas has today (September 14) announced his retirement from professional wrestling.

Atlas (real name Kenny Marquez) took to Twitter earlier today, posting a thread explaining that he will be retiring from wrestling due to mental health issues.

Atlas explained:

“I’m not concussed or “banged up.” I simply just can’t keep going anymore. Take your mental health seriously, both for yourselves & for each other, because we only have one life to live. Thank you to anyone who did support me for 5 years. I didn’t do much, but what I did was fun.
I’m stepping away from wrestling completely right now so please don’t ask me to do interviews/appearances. I’d like my privacy to be respected. At 26 years old, I’ve got my entire life ahead of me & I’m choosing to explore completely different industries to find my passion again.
Unfortunately, it was unhealthy for me the entire time. I just learned how to hide it really well. I hope that friends & fans I’ve made alike continue to support me no matter what.
We here at WrestleTalk send our best wishes to Marquez and wish him all the best with what he does next.
