Jade Cargill has been one of the rising stars of All Elite Wrestling. The Jade Brand has elevated herself from relative obscurity to the TBS Championship. Some people have even compared Jade’s undefeated streak to Bill Goldberg.
That doesn’t mean Cargill isn’t without her critics. Many fans have voiced their opinion that Jade needs to improve her in-ring work to shine. A popular opinion is that Cargill looks green inside the ring.
In a recent interview with Fightful’s Grapsody podcast, Jade Cargill didn’t deny that she was green. Jade embraced it. The TBS champ said she’s green the same way money is.
“I would say I’m still fairly new. Let’s be real, 26 matches compared to my peers who’ve done 100-plus matches and have done this for years and years, I’m still new. I don’t take criticism when people tell me I’m green. That’s fine, that’s great. For somebody that’s so green and doing what I’m doing and put in the position I’ve been put in, that’s like, thank you. I’m being compared to people who have been doing this for so many years. I’m green like money. I bring the money into the house. Regardless, if somebody’s watching TV at 10 o’clock at night just flipping through the channels, let’s be real, if they see my fine ass, they’re going to stop. You know what they’re going to do? They’re going to see my Instagram handle.
After every one of my matches, my followers go up. Every single time. Whether that’s you looking at how fine I am, whether that’s you seeing me kill it in a match, whatever it is, I’m bringing in the money. Even if people talk crap about me, good or bad, thank you. Keep bringing it. Keep me trending, I could care less. But, I’m fairly new. I’m still learning on the job. Every match there is something I’m learning that I never knew before. Like my first time using a chair, ever, I took that bad. Now if I ever have a chair in my hand from here on out, I know what to do. I’ve been put in some rough and tough situations but I thank Tony Khan for having the trust and belief in me because a lot of people wouldn’t. At the end of the day, people are going to crap on me regardless because I am new and because, literally, I came out of nowhere. That’s fine and I bring on the hate, but I’m still new.”
Jade believes she’s taking the right approach and building her following with every match. The haters don’t bother her one bit. The TBS Champion is hoping to keep learning and improving despite the ongoing criticism.
