Jade Cargill has been on an impressive streak since her Women’s Royal Rumble match, securing another win at WrestleMania 40 Saturday and continuing her success on RAW this week. Before that, she was dominant in AEW and Booker T believes she wouldn’t have been doing in AEW, had she stayed there.

Prior to her becoming a WWE Superstar, Jade Cargill was booked as an unstoppable force in AEW as the TBS Champion, where she had an incredible undefeated streak for a very long time.

Jade Cargill even stated that she couldn’t have gotten better start than in AEW and that it prepared her for WWE. While speaking on his Hall of Fame Podcast, Booker T reflected on Jade Cargill’s decision to join WWE, emphasizing the limitations she faced in AEW’s women’s division. He asserted that her move was a logical choice given the opportunities available. In AEW, Cargill was restricted to minor matches that didn’t contribute much to her growth or skill development.

Booker T highlighted the lack of interaction between Cargill and top-tier talent like Britt Baker, suggesting it hindered her learning process. Booker believes that WWE’s structured system offers Cargill more potential for growth and development, ultimately leading to a brighter future and a more significant impact on her star power.


“When looking at the roster in AEW as far as the women goes, it’s a no-brainer. She would be doing nothing in AEW if she was still there other than what she was doing which was nothing. She was having menial matches that didn’t do anything for her as far as her learning, just going out there and beating girls and padding her record. They were just squash matches. Learning on the fly, in not a great system for learning, again having those types of matches where you’re not working with the girls on the main roster, so to speak, the Britt Bakers. I don’t think Jade Cargill and Britt Baker spoke once in AEW. How can she be learning in a system like that? So I think her moving to WWE and being in that system, she’s going to get a whole lot more out of it as well as the after effect when it’s all over is how big her star is going to be. I think that what’s going to matter more than anything is how big her star is going to be.”

Jade Cargill also revealed her relationship with AEW following her exit. So far, Cargill has been booked as a force of nature in WWE, so we’ll have to see how she will remain booked in the coming weeks.
