Jim Ross has lauded the benefits of the WWE Performance Center, and feels Jade Cargill will benefit from spending an extended time there.
Whilst wrestling is an industry of badly kept secrets, it seems like the entire world knew that when former TBS Champion Jade Cargill didn’t renew her contract with AEW that she was going to be making the move to WWE. Her return to AEW television had only been brief, having a rematch with Kris Statlander for the title which she lost, before reportedly saying goodbye backstage and then eventually being removed from the roster page on the company’s website.
It was then revealed earlier this week by WWE that she had put pen to paper on a multi-year deal, and has already started her time at the Performance Center.
In a discussion on his Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross has spoken of why he feels the PC has a great setup.
We [JR and Triple H] are both are big proponents of the Performance Center And getting more ring time for these talents and getting them involved, getting them in the ring, getting good teaching and coaching, coaching them up, add some discipline, you know, just a whole scenario, whole feel. And, you know, I think NXT is one of the best things that WWE has done because where are you going talents that are trained?
Cargill Needs “Extended Length Of Time” At WWE PC
Continuing on, Good Ol’ JR has spoken about the hype surrounding Cargill’s signing, and how she’ll benefit from staying in NXT longer than you might think.
You know, all the big news about Jade Cargill. Jade Cargill needs to hang in that Performance Center for an extended length of time to help improve her game. And not that she’s not a good talent, she is, but she can get a lot better with more in-ring time and coaching. And they’ve got great coaching in NXT and in that whole Performance Center area.
A lot of guys really contributed well and they’ve helped make better. So I’m a big proponent of obviously Triple H was the driving force behind getting the Performance Center up and running and producing talent. That’s the whole bottom line is that how many stars can you produce, and that’s the bottom line of that deal. And they produced a lot of stars.
Jade Cargill has also admitted that ambitions of Hollywood were a factor in her decision to join WWE.
