• Criminal Charges Against Former WWE/AEW Wrestler Dropped
Last month, we reported that former WWE NXT & AEW Wrestler Jake Atlas was being charged with domestic battery for an incident that took place on May 23rd.
In Orlando, Florida, Atlas was drinking at “Big Daddy’s Roadhouse” when he called his partner to pick him up.
Atlas then encouraged his partner at stay at the bar and drink with his friends.
Jake then wanted to go to “another friend’s house to be intimate together”, but got mad when he saw his partner giving attention to someone else.
This led to a verbal argument and Jake “became physically aggressive” and charged at his partner, and another witness had to step in to break it up and told Jake to “sleep it off” as he was intoxicated.
As they reached their apartment, the partner left, but Atlas followed him and continued to yell at him.
Jake tried to attack his partner again and despite other witnesses stepping in to prevent it, Atlas managed to scratch his partner’s left forearm and tore his tank top.
Atlas went back into the apartment that he shared with his partner and refused to leave, and that’s when the Police were called.
The Police gave many chances to Atlas to explain his side of the story, but he kept on badmouthing his partner. Police then came to the conclusion that Atlas was the aggressor and he was arrested.
Jake later signed a no-contact order, where he can’t contact his partner and has to stay at least 500 feet away from him.
In an update to this situation, TMZ is reporting that the case has been dropped. They obtained a document which was filed last week that stated:
“From the investigation which has been made, it is the opinion of the writer that this case is not suitable for prosecution.”
During his time in WWE, Atlas wanted to be the 1st openly gay WWE World Champion, but he was released from the company in August 2021.
Atlas was on a per-appearance deal with AEW and they have no connection with him now.
