Cargill is going to be at the PC.
After being away from AEW since losing the TBS Championship at Double or Nothing, Jade Cargill made her return to the company on an episode of Collision and took out the reigning TBS Champion, Kris Statlander.
They had their match the following Wednesday for a Rampage taping and that aired on 9/15. It was first reported by Fightful Select that Cargill was ‘believed’ to be finishing up with AEW and is on her way to WWE.
In an update from PWInsider, the site noted that Cargill is scheduled to be at the Performance Center in Orlando this week.
Jade began her in-ring career with AEW in 2020. Her debut match saw herself and four-time NBA Champion Shaquille O’Neal team up to defeat Cody Rhodes and Red Velvet. Cargill is the first-ever and longest-reigning AEW TBS Champion and she had a record of 60-0 before her first loss.
Depending upon your perspective, this is either a big loss or not really a big loss. How much more can WWE do for her as a bigger platform? How long do you think she needs in developmental?? Did AEW maximize the end of that streak???
I dont think she goes to NXT, if WWE wants to continue convincing AEW talents to jump, they need to bring them right to the main roster and push them to varying degrees. If they put her in NXT I think that would be a bad look. If it was pre NXT 2.0, different story.
If she’s go to NXT to work with Becky Lynch, is that a bad thing compared to having pointless six-woman tags on Raw?
The booking/presentation and how you perform are miles more important than what day of the week you’re on TV.
Keep her off telly and introduce her in the Rumble. Let her have the big show/Kane spot finishing with throwing Nia Jax out with ease (to end her current and final run) then maybe someone like Charlotte or Lynch throws her out to start a big feud for Mania.
