One WWE Hall of Famer indicated WWE will make better use of Jade Cargill than AEW did.
After being absent since her loss to Kris Statlander at Double or Nothing, Jade Cargill made her return to AEW on the September 9th episode of Collision, attacking Statlander and setting up a rematch for the TBS Championship.
Cargill’s return was short-lived, however. After a highly praised match with Statlander for the September 15th episode of Rampage, she reportedly hugged many people backstage as she said farewell to All Elite Wrestling. It was later reported that her contract with AEW has indeed expired, and she was WWE-bound imminently.
On September 26th, ESPN reported that Cargill had officially signed with WWE, inking a multi-year deal with the sports entertainment giant. Triple H welcomed her to the company warmly, and Cargill herself also took to social media to comment.
Bully Ray Praises WWE Signing Jade Cargill
WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray also gave his thoughts on Cargill signing with WWE, saying that the star will finally be used to her maximum potential. While he didn’t mention AEW specifically, his words indicate that, despite her dominance in the company, Bully Ray believes she wasn’t used to her full potential during the time she was All Elite. He wrote:
“And now you will see her utilized to her maximum potential. @BustedOpenRadio”

While there has been no confirmation as to whether or not Cargill will spend time in NXT before heading to the main roster, previous reports indicate that main roster creative plans are a high priority for the star. She is expected to report to the Performance Center imminently.
