Jade Cargill Reveals Why She Signed With WWE Over AEW
Why Jade Cargill signed with WWE
Following weeks of rumours, Jade Cargill officially signed with WWE on Tuesday, September 26. She reported to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando later that day.
Cargill has been doing the media rounds since her WWE signing and she revealed to The Ringer Wrestling Show why she signed with the company over staying with All Elite Wrestling.
"One thing I am is a businesswoman and I think I made the best route at the time. WWE is a great company, you know, but I took what I had and I bet on myself, and the outcome obviously paid off. I want to create a legacy. I want to be in the Hall of Fame. I want to wrestle with the best women in the world. I mean, there's no grander stage than this stage. You know, the opportunities are endless for this company. It's a no brainer. It was very welcoming. I didn't have any second thoughts about it at all. It was just the easy choice," Cargill said.
"My ceiling, there is no limit to what I can do and I think you should always bet on Jade. In regards to how people feel, obviously, you should always bet on Jade because I'm gonna go out there. I'm a star in the making, I'm gonna do what I need to do. I'm gonna keep my head down and I'm gonna work hard because I'm a worker and that's what I do. At the end of the day, my star power is undeniable. What I do in the ring is undeniable and I just need to come here and create that legacy, and yeah, household name, and that's what I'm here for."
Cargill was then asked if she felt she had a ceiling in AEW. She stated: "I wouldn't say it was a ceiling, I would just say that the route that I wanted to take was different and the route that I wanted to embark on was different and I didn't see over there where I could get it, and the only way I could do it was coming to the WWE Universe. So I bet on myself and I made the best decision by coming here."
Cargill is the second major AEW talent to jump to WWE, following Cody Rhodes. She was a featured performer in AEW and Cargill had a 60-match winning streak before finally losing to Kris Statlander at Double or Nothing 2023.
