Jake Atlas has been the subject of several controversies.
Here’s a look at some of them. First and foremost, is he g*y? While the answer to this question is still largely unknown, it is worth a read.
And, as we all know, wrestling isn’t always the most progressive sport in the world, so there’s always the risk of backlash and rejection.
There are a number of controversial cases surrounding g*y and l*****n wrestlers.
In fact, Sonya Deville was the first l*****n to enter the WWE.
However, she wasn’t as outspoken as Jake Atlas. Even so, she made it clear in her Twitter bio that she is b******l and has no problem coming out.
Moreover, she’s a strong advocate for the LGBTQ community.
Another case involves a wrestler from New Orleans.
The former American pro wrestler was born in Tallahassee, Florida, but later transitioned to gender-neutrality.
While wrestling is a male-dominated sport, the LGBTQ community has been increasingly visible in the last few years.
Recently, transgender wrestler Mack Beggs starred in an ESPN 30 for 30 episodes, and g*y wrestler Jake Atlas has just signed with World Wrestling Entertainment.
He will make his WWE debut in 2020. And if you’re a fan of g*y wrestling, don’t miss the Choke Hole, a group of drag queens from New Orleans.
If Jake Atlas is g*y, then there are a number of controversies surrounding him.
But before we dive into them, let’s take a look at the known controversies surrounding the American wrestler.
These include rumours that he’s g*y. Jake Atlas’ marriage to his girlfriend, his involvement with a g*y couple, and his s****l orientation.
After his first marriage, Jake Atlas began working for indie wrestling promotions.
His first booking was with Florida-based Logan Steel, but later he worked for AEW’s Ricky Starks.
As the controversies continued, he made his way to national notoriety, where he faced backlash from fans and promoters alike.
At the time, he stated that he receives the majority of negativity from talking about s*******y.
The WWE’s first public g*y wrestler came out in 2004. Don’t Die, Miles, the creator of a successful YouTube series called “The Jimquisition”, came out as g*y and was grateful to his fans for their support.
Kris Wolf, a former High-Speed Champion, also came out as a g*y wrestler.
While his fans were a little sceptical, they were more interested in his stage deviousness.
