Former WWE NXT star signs with AEW

Jake Atlas is officially All Elite as AEW President Tony Khan confirmed on Twitter today that the former WWE NXT star has signed a full-time deal with the promotion.

Khan wrote, “Congratulations on winning your tryout match last night, Jake Atlas! What a great @AEW debut, and now @kennymarquez, I’ll see you Tomorrow night in Newark at the debut of #AEWDynamite on @TBSNetwork! Safe travels, and…Welcome to the team! #JakeAtlas is All Elite!”

Atlas worked the Dark TV tapings last month that included his win over Serpentico. AEW was interested in signing Atlas in the early days of the company, but he decided to sign with WWE instead and worked in NXT.

WWE released him in August along with several other wrestlers. Atlas previously confirmed that he asked for his WWE release prior to being let go.

Atlas announced in September that he wanted to step away from wrestling to focus on his mental health. He also wanted to “explore completely different industries to find my passion again.” Atlas found that and now has a fresh start in AEW.
