Jake Atlas announces retirement

As of yesterday, Jake Atlas has officially announced his retirement from Professional Wrestling.

Jake Atlas (real name Kenny Marquez,) took to Twitter posting a thread explaining that he will be retiring from wrestling due to ongoing mental health issues.

Atlas explained:

“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."

We here at Real Rasslin would like to take this opportunity to wish Kenny Marquez all the best for the future and in whatever he decides to do next!
