Jade Cargill may be headed to WWE and Booker T has chimed in to explain why he thinks she’d be a “perfect star” there.
It’s been a week full of rumors regarding the future of former AEW TBS Champion Jade Cargill, who started her career in that company with a 61-0 record.
On the September 15th edition of AEW Rampage, which was taped two days earlier after Dynamite, Cargill lost her TBS Championship rematch against the champion Kris Statlander. After the match that was praised heavily by many people, Cargill and Statlander shared an emotional hug in the ring.
There have been multiple reports about Cargill’s AEW status noting that her contract has expired or will expire within days. It has also been reported that Cargill may sign with WWE in the coming days or perhaps already did.
While some people believe Cargill would likely be in NXT, there are others who feel that Cargill would join the main roster (Raw or Smackdown) right away because of how much WWE will likely be paying her.
Booker T is a two-time WWE Hall of Famer with his own wrestling school (Reality of Wrestling) and he’s been an announcer on NXT for the past year. On his Hall of Fame podcast/radio show, Booker T spoke about Cargill possibly going to WWE.
“I said it some months back. I said, ‘Jade Cargill has WWE written all over her.’ That’s what I said. I’d said, ‘She’s a WWE Superstar.’ Not that she didn’t fit in, could not fit in in AEW. That’s not what I’m saying.”
“I’m saying she is what WWE has always promoted, that super-athlete. That super soldier, you know what I’m saying? So no, man. This is something I anticipated. I didn’t put it out there or anything as far as saying Jade Cargill was going to be coming to WWE.“
Booker T calls Jade Cargill a “perfect star” for WWE
As he continued, Booker T spoke about Cargill’s potential saying she would be a megastar in WWE.
“I did feel like Cargill was that perfect star for WWE. I mean, her star power is so huge right now. Just say this, for instance. They put a title on her, and they didn’t even have to make it a champ, but she still was the focal point of that whole thing. Everybody was waiting on when Jade Cargill was going to go against Britt Baker. That never happened. I don’t think they ever had a match or anything like that.”
“And I think, of course, they were grooming Jade Cargill because of course she is a little green. But from the growth of the performance of Jade Cargill over the past few times I’ve seen her in the ring, she looked like she’s progressing relatively quickly. And I think in the WWE, I think she’s going to progress a whole lot quicker.”
“Because WWE is not going to put in positions where she got to go out there and do a lot of the stuff that a lot of those girls over there want to do. Like go out there and have a death match, want to go out there and have a glass — you know, one of these crazy matches, you know what I mean? And I just think in WWE, her star power is going to grow like crazy. She’s going to be a megastar in WWE.”
Clearly, Booker T is a big fan of Jade Cargill and so are a lot of fans that feel like she could be a massive star if she does sign with WWE in the near future.
