Jungle Boy also added that he would want to face Jake on a bigger stage at some point ahead in the future. However, with the ever-increasing AEW roster, there is a possibility.

“Those are guys I used to watch and that would be super cool. My best friend, actually, his name’s Jake Atlas. He just got laid off this last round of layoffs, and so far I’ve had some of my best matches of my career with him, a lot of those being on the indies, so I think for me it would be cool to do that again on a bigger stage, maybe. Fingers crossed.” said Jungle Boy. [h/t: WrestleTalk]

Surely, Jake Atlas must serve WWE’s standard no-compete clause; however, with his record on the indies circuit and in WWE, Atlas surely has a lot of potential ahead.
