As previously reported on eWrestlingNews.com, former AEW TBS Champion Jade Cargill is expected to be joining WWE.
Dave Meltzer provided more details in the latest issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, reporting that Cargill and AEW didn’t come to terms on a new deal.
“Those in WWE believed she was coming and that it would be on the main roster rather than developmental, but I could see that going either way. Another person in WWE described it to us as that her name was being talked about a lot, but the deal was not completed at press time. The money it would take to get her would have been far more than they pay those in developmental, but while she has a star look and is a great athlete, her skill set and experience level is not at WWE main roster woman levels. But good workers are there to make the less experienced and more marketable workers look better than they are.”
The Observer also reported that former major league baseball star Aaron Phillips, Cargill’s husband, was in attendance in Cincinnati for her possible final AEW match and that there were reports that it was the best match of her career.
“One person in WWE described this as coming out of the blue, but that they do expect her to be coming in. There are several factors involved here including money. Cargill was probably protected more in AEW than she would be in WWE, but that’s not to be sure. She probably can have better matches in WWE because on the main roster the level of the women is higher. From a travel schedule, for someone with outside interests and a daughter, WWE would have her do more matches, which is probably a good thing for her long-run, but travel far more extensive unless she got a sweetheart deal on the schedule. If she has goals outside of wrestling, such as acting since she’s got a superhero look, the WWE main roster exposure would help her more.”
Former AEW TBS Champion Jade Cargill is reportedly expected to join WWE, according to recent reports. Dave Meltzer, in the latest issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, provided more details on the situation, stating that Cargill and AEW were unable to reach an agreement on a new deal.
While WWE believed that Cargill would be joining the main roster rather than developmental, the deal had not been finalized at the time of the report. The financial terms required to secure her services would likely be higher than what developmental talents are paid. However, despite Cargill’s star look and athleticism, her skill set and experience level may not be at the same level as WWE main roster women. Nonetheless, WWE has a roster of talented workers who can make less experienced and more marketable performers look better than they are.
It was also noted that Cargill’s husband, former major league baseball star Aaron Phillips, was present at her possible final AEW match in Cincinnati. Reports suggest that it was the best match of her career.
According to Meltzer, Cargill’s potential move to WWE came as a surprise to some within the company, but they do expect her to join. Several factors will come into play, including financial considerations. While Cargill may have received more protection in AEW, she may have the opportunity for better matches in WWE due to the higher level of talent on the main roster. Additionally, WWE’s travel schedule may be more demanding, which could be beneficial for her long-term development. However, if she has aspirations outside of wrestling, such as acting, exposure on the WWE main roster could be advantageous.

However, if she has goals beyond wrestling, WWE’s exposure could provide valuable opportunities for her future endeavors.
