Jade Cargill Signs With WWE

ESPN has broken the news that Jade Cargill, former AEW inaugural TBS champion has signed a multi-year deal with World Wrestling Entertainment. Financial details of her contract were not disclosed, but seeing as Cargill was not only the first TBS champion but held the longest reign of any champion for All Elite Wrestling, a staggering 508 days, she will undoubtedly command a healthy amount for her talents.

Triple H, the COO of World Wrestling Entertainment, confirmed the report after posting on Twitter,

“A dominant athlete who’s here to change the game…

Join me in welcoming the newest @WWE Superstar, @Jade_Cargill, to the @WWEUniverse.”

Jade Cargill is still relatively new in the wrestling industry. After an unsuccessful tryout for WWE in 2019, Cargill then went on to train under the likes of Q.T. Marshall, Dustin Rhodes, and Bryan Danielson. In 2022, Cargill had her first professional wrestling match in a star-studded match, teaming with Shaquille O’Neal against Cody Rhodes and Red Velvet. Since her debut, Cargill would go on to enter into the TBS Championship tournament, going on to win the inaugural title by defeating Ruby Soho.

Once winning the TBS title, there was no stopping Cargill. She would continue her winning streak, defeating sixty opponents, in her record setting 508-day TBS championship reign. That reign would come to an end after she defeated Tayra Valkarie at Double or Nothing in 2023. After beating her opponent, Cargill issued an open challenge and a returning Kris Statlander would accept it only to shock the world, dethroning the longest reigning champion in All Elite Wrestling, and winning her first AEW title.

Jade Cargill would then vanish from the public. Rumors that Cargill had been injured at Double or Nothing began to circulate, followed by other rumors that said Cargill was embarrassed by losing her title. Others in the wrestling world said Cargill had become bored with wrestling after delivering such a dominating performance right out of the gate of her career. Kayfabe Bugle did reach out to AEW officials for any information on Cargill’s whereabouts and plans, but all of our requested were ignored.

Whatever the truth was, Cargill returned to AEW three months later, attacking Statlander. This would ultimately lead to a match between the two women, where Statlander would cement her place as the TBS champion.

Now that the news has broken about Jade Cargill’s next move in professional wrestling, it’s still unclear if she will join the roster of NXT, Raw, or Smackdown. Whoever gains the talents of Ms. Cargill, though, will undoubtedly mean the hierarchy of power in the women’s division will be changing.
