Since her debut in AEW, Jade Cargill has been booked as an unstoppable force in the company. The company has made it clear they see a lot of potential in Cargill, hence she has been getting pushed to the moon. Cargill also does not get mad when people think she has not paid her dues.
Cargill won the TBS Women’s Championship and since then has remained undefeated in the company. Cargill has made short work out of all of her opponents and there is hardly anyone who can stand up to her.
Jade Cargill recently displayed a lot of vulnerability in a self-penned Player’s Tribune article. In it, the TBS Women’s Champion acknowledged those who still doubt her. Cargill said that she doesn’t get mad when people think she hasn’t paid her dues.
“I know there will always be people who are going to talk their talk. People who think I wasn’t ready when I became TBS champ. People who think I haven’t paid my dues. And honestly I’m not even mad at those people. I appreciate that a lot of those opinions, they just come with the territory when your audience is as passionate as ours is. And at times I’ve felt many of those same doubts. Believe me, I was shocked and humbled to be the first TBS champ — and I had moments where I was questioning things. Like, How will this be perceived by our fan base? How will my coworkers feel? How am I going to feel? All of those thoughts were on my mind.
At the same time, though, I can promise you another thing: I would’ve never entered this sport if I didn’t think I had it in me to be great. Not good…. great. And I’m still growing, that’s just a fact. This is my second year as a wrestler. I debuted in front of the whole world. Half the time I feel like a lab experiment for TV viewers. And when I’m feeling doubts, I just remember that my daughter — she’s one of those viewers. And she’s seeing her mom be a champion. She’s seeing me grab life by the horns, and refuse to settle.
I come from a proud, Black family, and generations of proud, Black women. So I’ve always grown up with that special armor, that ability to be the only Black person in a room and keep my head up high — because I feel like I’m representing a lot of Black people who aren’t there. And I feel like I’m representing them even more in the role I’m in now. In everything I do, I want to be a pioneer for the next generation. I want to be proof.”
Jade Cargill also knows that she is a walking savage. The company clearly has a lot planned for her and fans are excited to see what the future holds for Cargill. We’ll have to see how she will be booked in the coming weeks.
