Cargill feels it was a move she had to make. 

Ahead of making her WrestleMania debut on night one of the two-night event, Jade Cargill joined Dave LaGreca and Mark Henry on Busted Open

As the conversation rolled on, Cargill further spoke about her decision to depart All Elite Wrestling. The former and longest-reigning TBS Champion stated that AEW is a growing company, but she’s 31-years-old and needs to be with an established promotion. 

Cargill added that time is not on her side and she does not have time to be with a growing company. She went on to make the comment that ‘the front office is the front office’ in WWE.

It was a couple decisions that made me come to WWE. I mean, other than the fact that the machine is ridiculous over here, the connections, the history, the legacy, it’s one of one, you know? AEW is a new company. Obviously, they’re still figuring things out, but that happens in every company. You have to figure things out, what’s good and what’s bad. I am 31, I don’t have time to really grow with a company at my age. I have to be in an established company and I have to go over there and let that be known because you can’t do this forever and as a woman, especially in your 30s, the majority of the fan base is like, ‘Okay, well it’s time for her to go about her way. What’s next for her?’ And let’s be real, people wanna see, regardless if they’re good or not, they wanna see that 20-something-year-old on TV rather than that 30-something-year-old woman on TV. So time is not on my side and I knew I had to make the best decision for me, but not just for me, my family. It gets no better than this. The front office is the front office and I think that’s the best way to sum up what it is and I trust the process. I have a WrestleMania match and again, the front office is the front office.

Cargill is going to team with Bianca Belair and Naomi to take on Damage CTRL (Dakota Kai, Kairi Sane & Asuka) at WrestleMania 40. 

The trio of Cargill, Belair and Naomi appeared on the 4/5 SmackDown to address Damage CTRL.
