Jade Cargill has been booked as an unstoppable force in AEW as she has run roughshod over the women’s division. Her dominant run in the company has led to a steadily growing fanbase as well. It seems Jim Ross gave her some useful advice recently as well.

Cargill became the first-ever AEW TBS Champion as she defeated fan-favorite Ruby Soho in the finals of the TBS Women’s Eliminator Tournament. Many fans were disappointed at this as they wanted to see Soho become the inaugural champion.

Many also criticized her in-ring skills as fans felt she is still far too green to even compete, let alone be a champion. While speaking on the Grilling JR Podcast, Jim Ross revealed that he told Jade Cargill to learn not to be stupid inside the squared circle.

“I said, ‘you’ve got a lot of work to do. Talked to her about this yesterday and I said, ‘you know, in basketball, a sport you did really well in, you gotta learn things that go along with the game, for example, in basketball you gotta learn how to shoot free throws. In wrestling, there are certain things you gotta learn how to do that are critical in the maturation of a pro wrestler. Taking a flat-back bump, doing crisp strikes, not being stupid, that type thing’. She’s really smart and she wants to be really, really good.

“She realizes that her look is her meal ticket right now. But it won’t always be, because once your look is exposed for several weeks and what have you, it becomes not as special. So you gotta bring things with your game and that’s her charge right now. She’s gotta be able to do that, that’s not going to happen overnight, I don’t even know if it’ll happen in 2022. It’s got to be constant work to be good at what you do and that’s where we are with her.

When she walked up that stage with her little girl in her arms, that got me. That’s real, it got me and I was really proud for her in that moment. You know, being a single mom, even though her ex was there, it was cool that he supported the mom and the little girl even though they’re not together any longer. So, yeah, that was the moment for me that kind of defined Jade and started separating her from the pack. Having a child made her a little more real.”

We will have to wait and see how Cargill will be booked as the champion in the coming weeks as fans want to see her improve her in-ring skills as well.
