Jake Atlas was released from WWE last year and then announced that he was stepping away from pro wrestling. His pro wrestling hiatus did not last long as he made his way to AEW and signed a contract with the company. Jake Atlas is trying to make a miracle happen as well.
Jake Atlas squared off against Adam Cole during a previous episode of AEW Rampage. During the match, Jake Atlas suffered a knee injury and caused many fans to be concerned.
It was said that he received an MRI after the match as well. Atlas would then undergo successful surgery to repair his torn ACL last month. While speaking on the Highspots Wrestling Network’s “Sign it Live” virtual signing, Jake Atlas talked about his road to recovery after the injury. At least stated that he is trying to make a miracle happen, but it could take almost 9 months to fully recover and make an in-ring return.
“…I was trying to be positive [after the injury], but when the match aired and I saw it for myself, I was like, okay, this is something that may be a little bit off. And then got the MRI done and unfortunately, it was a torn ACL. So that is quite a bit of recovery time as a lot of people know. It’s like nine months. I’m trying my best to see if I can work, make a miracle happen.”
We will have to wait and see whether Jake Atlas will be able to make his return to the squad circle by the end of his year or not.
