Cargill is officially heading to WWE.
It was first reported by Fightful Select that the first-ever AEW TBS Champion Jade Cargill was ‘believed’ to be finishing up with the company and heading to WWE, following her TBS Title rematch against Kris Statlander. Following up on that, PWInsider added that Cargill was scheduled to be at the WWE Performance Center.
It has now been confirmed that Cargill has signed with WWE. ESPN’s Marc Raimondi was informed by WWE that Cargill is joining the company and she is starting at the Performance Center today. WWE noted that it’s a multi-year deal. There is no word on whether Cargill will head to the main roster or start in NXT.
Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque commented on Cargill’s signing:
Cargill had her first sanctioned match in 2021 in a mixed tag in which she teamed with multi-time NBA Champion Shaquille O’Neal to face Red Velvet and current WWE talent Cody Rhodes.
Jade is the first-ever and longest-reigning AEW TBS Champion. She held the title from January 2022 to May 2023.
