Becky Lynch has issued a warning to WWE’s newest star, Jade Cargill.
WWE ended all speculation on the 26th of September when the company announced that they had snapped up former AEW star Jade Cargill on a multi-year deal.
Cargill has shone in AEW’s women’s division, holding the TBS Championship for over 500 days before losing the title to the returning Kris Statlander at Double Or Nothing in May 2023. Following that loss, Cargill remained absent from the company until she made her return on the 13th of September edition of Rampage where she failed to reclaim the title from Statlander.
The two women embraced after the match and it seemed by then everybody knew Jade Cargill’s wrestling future lay elsewhere despite recent comments noting that there was nowhere else she wanted to be.

Speaking to the New York Post, current NXT Women’s Champion Becky Lynch has commented on Cargill joining WWE and says it’s another person for her to get in the ring with and kick their ass:
“I watch all the products. I think it’s great. More women with more platforms. I think she has a lot of work to do when she gets here, but if she is willing to do that, just look at her. She’s a star. It’s more people for me to get in the ring with and kick their asses.”
Many expect Jade Cargill to debut for the company on the NXT brand which means a run-in with Becky Lynch is almost inevitable. Cargill has said she knows which brand she’ll be heading to in her new home but has remained tight-lipped on where it will be.
