Atlas had been signed with WWE spending his time on 205 Live and NXT until he was released on August 6th 2021. Atlas worked some dates after his release including working at Ring of Honor’s Death Before Dishonor on September 12th 2021 in a losing effort to Taylor Rust. Shortly after Atlas stepped away from the squared circle but now he is back and has joined the ranks of AEW with ex-fellow 205 Live stars like 2Point0 and Tony Nese.
Atlas responded to the All-Elite news with the following Tweet.
If only everyone knew every detail leading up to this. This means everything to me. Cliché but I REALLY have a lot to prove now. This year, whether you love me or hate me, you’re going to know me. It is what it is. Superstar is back. ✨— ???????????????? ???????????????????? (@kennymarquez) January 4, 2022
