Jake Atlas Says He’s “Stepping Away From Wrestling”

Jake Atlas, who was released from NXT last month, said on Twitter tonight that he was “stepping away from wrestling completely” because it isn’t good for his mental health.

Atlas made his ROH debut on Sunday at the ROH Death Before Dishonor PPV, losing to Taylor Rust (formerly Tyler Rust in NXT). There were reports that he was banged up in the match, but Atlas denied that in his tweet. He was scheduled to also work ROH’s TV tapings on Monday and Tuesday.

In an interview last week, Atlas talked about suffering from mental health issues during his time in NXT.
