Jade Cargill moving to WWE was not a tough decision.
The speculation and rumours were put to bed on the 26th of September when WWE announced that they had put pen to paper on a deal with former AEW star Jade Cargill.
Speaking to The Ringer’s Masked Man Show, Jade Cargill said that the “endless opportunities” available with WWE helped make her mind up as to where her future lay:
“I want to create a legacy. I want to be in the Hall of Fame. I want to wrestle with the best women in the world. There is no grander stage than this stage. The opportunities are endless with this company. It was a no brainer. It was very welcoming. I didn’t have any second thoughts about it at all. It was an easy choice. It wasn’t easy, but it was easy.”
Cargill then touched on her relationship with Cody Rhodes who was a part of her first AEW match. The new WWE star admitted that Rhodes’ influence helped make her decision:
“He was top three, and not third. He is a phenomenal man. I’ve seen what the business did for him, I’ve seen him be the stellar athlete that he is. I didn’t see any different for myself. He was one of the guys that led me to a great decision.”
Jade Cargill “made the best decision” joining WWE
Jade Cargill doesn’t think she hit a ceiling in AEW but says she wanted to take a different path and didn’t see where that fitted in as part of Tony Khan’s company:
“I wouldn’t say it’s a ceiling. I would just say that the route I wanted to take was different and the route I wanted to embark on was different. I didn’t see, over there, where I could fit it. The only way I could do it was coming to the WWE Universe. I bet on myself and I made the best decision coming here.”
Triple H has also commented on the signing of Jade Cargill as he welcomed his newest star to the company after news of her signing broke.
