Jade Cargill Opens Up About How Chyna Inspired Her

AEW’s latest signing Jade Cargill has opened up about the influence of WWE legend Chyna on her career on this week’s AEW Unrestricted podcast.

Cargill, who signed a contract with AEW following her debut last week, spoke to her “muscular” look and how Chyna inspired her to embrace the look.

“Growing up I’ve always been muscular and I used to always get picked on by guys saying, ‘Oh she looks like a man. She’s too muscular.’ And I remember growing up and watching Chyna and seeing how she just embodied, just loved how she looked, and it just did nothing but empower me and make me say, ‘You know what? I look good. These muscles look great!'”

Another of Cargill’s striking features is most definitely her silver hair – which many have likened to that of Storm’s from X-Men.

“I was just sitting around with my friends, and they said, ‘You know what color you should wear? You should wear the silver or the white color.’ And I said, ‘Oh wow! I would love that!’ And they said, ‘You know, you look like Storm.’ I tried it, and I loved it. I love what she stands for. She’s a powerful Black woman, and I think I stand for that same thing.”

When we finally see Cargill in the ring, though, in AEW, we’re sure to see some influences from the legendary Dustin Rhodes – with Cargill opening up about how Rhodes and QT Marshall have been helping her along the way in the infancy of her AEW career.

“I’ve been working with Dustin. Dustin’s really been geared in. He’s been making sure that I’m prepared. He made my debut super easy for me. He talked me through everything as well as QT at the Nightmare Factory. They’ve been sitting down, talking to me, rehearsing with me, making sure that everything is perfect.”
