Jade Cargill has defeated Thunder Rosa to book a date against Ruby Soho in the finals of the TBS Championship Tournament.
The undefeated Jade Cargill overcame the biggest test of her young career to earn victory in the semi-finals of the TBS Championship Tournament. The win means that Cargill will meet Ruby Soho on the January 5th episode of AEW Dynamite, the first to be held on TBS.
The winner of that bout will be crowned the first ever AEW TBS Champion.
However, the win wasn’t without a great deal of controversy. After an even-contest, with Jade Cargill gathering herself in the ring, her manager Mark Sterling distracted the referee. With eyes everywhere except on Thunder Rosa, a hooded figure rushed to ringside, laying out the face-painted star.
The shock assault meant that Cargill was able to grab the win.
Naturally this didn’t sit well with Thunder Rosa who attempted to gain some retribution after the bell. Despite doing her best to brawl with the winner, the hooded figure arrived back in the ring to lay out Rosa. The mystery assailant then revealed herself to be former NXT Superstar Mercedes Martinez.
With a two-on-one beatdown in full flow, Ruby Soho ran to the ring to even the score, sending Cargill and Martinez running to the outside.

Jade Cargill had earned her match against Rosa with victory over Red Velvet. Meanwhile, Cargill’s opponent Ruby Soho battled her way past Penelope Ford and Kris Statlander to earn her spot in the final. Since arriving in AEW at All Out in September, Soho has only lost once in singles action.
On that occasion she was defeated by AEW Women’s World Champion Britt Baker in a special Dynamite event at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York.
