Jake Atlas kündigte via Social Media seinen Rücktritt an. Der 26-jährige Atlas wurde letzten Monat von WWE entlassen und wrestlete seit seiner Entlassung zwei Indy-Matches, jeweils bei GCW (gegen Effy) und Ring of Honor (gegen Taylor Rust).
"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.
I have major anxiety just having done that, please be sensitive. Thank you."
