Jade Cargill currently stands as one of the biggest stars in AEW’s women’s division. Despite being less than two years into her career, the TBS Champion has already risen to the top of the division with the promise that there is more to come.
Before signing with All Elite Wrestling Cargill attended a WWE try-out at the Performance Center. From here, she ended up training at the Nightmare Factory with QT Marshall which set her fully on the path to AEW.
“Tony Khan Treats Us Like Athletes” – Jade Cargill
During a recent appearance on The Breakfast Club, Cargill discussed why she wanted to join AEW instead of WWE. The star explained that she loves the fact AEW boss treats his wrestlers like athletes.
“I was actually going between this company and [WWE] at the same time, but, ya know, we have an owner, Tony Khan… I love the fact that he treats us like athletes.”
The undefeated star said that she ultimately decided to work for AEW because she isn’t treated like a number.
“He [Tony Khan] understands that we need mental health days, we need time off… I have a 5-year-old daughter, I want to be there as much as I can for her,” Cargill said. “That’s the reason I chose this company… They don’t treat me like a number.”
Since arriving on AEW television back in November 2020, Jade Cargill has been turning heads. On debut she confronted none other than Cody Rhodes, before sharing the ring with the now WWE star when she wrestled her first ever match.
After teaming with Shaquille O’Neal on March 3rd 2021 to defeat Rhodes and Red Velvet, Cargill has made rapid progress up the card, to where she now stands as one of the biggest female stars in AEW.
Back in January 2022, Cargill became the first-ever AEW TBS Champion as the company’s flagship show Dynamite moved from TNT to TBS.
Jade Cargill will be back in action at AEW Full Gear when she defends her prized title against Nyla Rose.
