Jade Cargill has been getting quite the push in AEW lately. After a slow start to her pro wrestling career, Jade has dedicated herself to getting better every day. Cargill has even been working with Bryan Danielson to improve her work in the ring. It eventually paid off in the form of the TBS Championship.
Tony Khan knew Jade Cargill was a project when he signed her to an AEW contract. Khan compared her to an NFL draft pick that you expect to come in and improve. The AEW boss thinks she has met that standard and then some.
During Khan’s regular spot on Busted Open Radio, he discussed Jade Cargill’s improvement. Tony knew as a college athlete without wrestling experience, the tools were there. In a year and a half, he thinks Jade has made incredible strides.
“She’s a great athlete and has a really hard-working mindset. It’s what we expected. I think she got a very prominent push because she had all the tools, and we really believed she would improve. It’s like when you have a high draft pick, I think you expect them to come in and improve. It’s a relevant comparison now, we’re in the middle of the NFL Draft. I myself am in the middle of the NFL Draft, literally in the room. And, a lot of times you’re picking players off potential.
I think Jade Cargill is a great example of that. A college athlete, someone who did not have experience in the pro wrestling business a year and a half ago, and has made such great strides and has been wrestling on TV for just over a year with one of the most impressive records in this sport.”
Jade Cargill and her Baddies will team up to take on Skye Blue, Willow Nightingale, and Trish Adora on tonight’s episode of AEW Rampage. Fans can check out Jade’s work on TBS starting at 10 PM eastern. Khan has promised that it will be one of the best one-hour cards he’s promoted yet.
