Jake Atlas the former NXT superstar announced in a post on Twitter today that he will be stepping away from wrestling completely as of today.
Atlas last wrestled just this past Saturday at the ROH Death Before Dishonor Show against Taylor Rust. During the match, it was abruptly ended and left some believing that he may have suffered a concussion. In the post, Atla’s stated that this was not the case and that he simply “can’t keep going anymore.”He also made it clear to fan to take their mental health seriously.
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
