Jade Cargill Reveals She Was Originally Set To Debut In AEW As A Babyface
Cargill has become one of AEW’s top heels
Jade Cargill is riding high in AEW’s women’s division, as the undefeated ‘Bitch’ has defeated all challengers, becoming the first ever AEW TBS Champion in the process.
Despite slotting into her heel role with ease, apparently Cargill was originally meant to debut in AEW as a babyface, as Cargill revealed on Talk is Jericho:
“I was actually being groomed to be a babyface, so when they legit popped it on me like the day of, ‘you’re going through the heel tunnel,’ I was like, ‘what, huh? You’re telling me I am a heel? Okay, alright, let me look into this more.’ It was shocking, I had a whole come back.”
Cargill is clearly being groomed by AEW as their next big star, with her TBS Championship Tournament Final win over Ruby Soho being her first major accolade in the company. However, Cargill was disappointed by the finish of the match:
“Next up was Ruby Soho, she was a pleasure to work with as well. Very easy, very experienced,” Cargill said. “It was a great match, it was a banger. The finish wasn’t the best finish that I would have loved to give everybody. It was more so, me trying to push the button with going to the third rope, which she was like, ‘no, we are not doing this.’ I told her I was like, ‘hey, if I feel it,’ because the thing about it, as soon as we got up there we could have just went. It’s literally as soon as I get it go, there wasn’t like a pause, you’ve just got to go.
“When she told me, ‘no,’ I was like, ‘alright, one, two, go.’ Gave her the iggy and we were going. Whatever happened next, that’s just what happened next, but things happen. I am living and learning, I am literally learning after every match, I watched that match. It’s all on me, I take responsibility being that I am the heel and I call the match. I called that spot, and that was on me. Being that I am a leader, and I am learning, being that I have been put in a position to hold the belt, I plan to use that, run with it, and get better.”
