Independent wrestler Jake Atlas has reportedly signed with WWE and will soon start training at the Performance Center.
The story was first reported by Last Word on Pro Wrestling and additional details were confirmed by SoCalUncensored.
According to the latter, Atlas will start with WWE in January.
Jake Atlas first brushed with WWE in 2018 after appearing on an episode of Undercover Boss featuring Stephanie McMahon. During the episode, he was given a “brand ambassador” contract.
Atlas recently got the attention of the wrestling community after a standout performance at PWG’s Battle of Los Angeles tournament. He then wrestled for Ring of Honor in Las Vegas and reportedly turned down a contract offer after the company teased being interested in signing him.
