AEW announces the signing of Jake Atlas

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

AEW officially announced the signing of Jake Atlas (Kenny Marquez) on Tuesday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Powell’s POV: Atlas debuted on AEW Dark Elevation on Monday night. In a segment that did not air on the show, AEW President Tony Khan joined Atlas on the stage following his match, which seemed like a good indication that Atlas would be signed.

  1. 5’7″, Japanese/Mexican, and openly gay.

    Looks like Tony overcompensated on the diversity complaints.

    • Atlas’s match on Elevation was taped last week before the Swole controversy. Khan walked onto the stage afterward, making it obvious that he intended to sign him. They just waited until after the match aired last night to announce it. Khan handled the Swole situation horribly, but I don’t think the Atlas signing has anything to do with it.

  2. lol at their booking policy, don’t use the guys they have that are known, sign randoms that no one cares about after 1 dark match lmao wow
