Jade Cargill’s Move To WWE Is Not Financially Motivated

Jade Cargill’s move to WWE is not financially motivated

Jade Cargill is reportedly on her way to WWE after returning briefly to All Elite Wrestling over the past week.

Cargill is a former TBS Champion, holding the belt for around 500 days before dropping it to Kris Statlander back at AEW Double Or Nothing. She returned on Saturday’s Collision and laid out Statlander, with a title rematch coming on Friday’s AEW Rampage.

There had been discussion about the nature of Jade Cargill’s deal over the summer when she was taking planned time off from the company after AEW Double or Nothing. Those that we’ve spoken to within WWE are of the belief that her deal may be structured in a way that could see her sign imminently. There was discussion of Cargill holding option years in AEW, but we’ve not had that confirmed. We haven’t heard why specifically that Jade Cargill is looking to make the move, but one source indicated that it isn’t financially motivated. Upon returning backstage following her match with Kris Statlander in Cincinnati, Jade was greeted by several members of the roster who exchanged hugs. It was seen as a farewell within the company. There were many within the company that said she was headed to WWE, but we’ve not heard that she explicitly stated that. Instead she told people she may focus on family and her softball team that she and Brandon Phillips own. Jade Cargill does have a team of representatives for her deals, we’re told. Some top WWE Superstars had heard that Cargill was heading to the company as early as last week, and it was a topic of discussion backstage at WWE Raw.

As mentioned, Cargill is scheduled to challenge for the AEW TBS Championship on this Friday’s AEW Rampage.
