Pro Wrestling Twist: Jade Cargill Stuns Fans With Abrupt AEW Departure, Rumors of WWE Move Swirl

In a surprise development that left pro wrestling circles abuzz, Jade Cargill’s reappearance on AEW’s Saturday episode of ‘Collision’ seemed to be startlingly fleeting. Sources suggest that Cargill is ready for a new chapter, projected to grapple under the WWE banner.

Cargill’s abrupt AEW departure is currently the talk of the wrestling world. Reports from Fightful Select state that her last match in an AEW ring might have already been recorded, having faced off against Kris Statlander in a blockbuster TBS Championship showdown. This could potentially be her encore performance on AEW Rampage airing on Friday.

AEW’s announcers setting the stage for a Statlander-Cargill rematch—dubbed ‘Statlander 2’—raised eyebrows across the wrestling community. Despite this being a reprisal of Cargill’s single defeat in her AEW tenure, it still wasn’t as shocking as the result. The match outcome saw Statlander win cleanly, seemingly setting the stage for Cargill’s exit.

Fightful’s sources admit that the key details of Cargill’s major move—including her AEW contract’s expiration date and any official offer from WWE—remain unconfirmed. Nevertheless, the grapevine in both WWE and AEW locker rooms suggests that Cargill is about to cross over to WWE.

Throughout her two-and-a-half-year career, Cargill has battled in a total of 64 AEW clashes. If the WWE move does materialize according to Fightful’s intel, she would be the second major AEW talent to trade the upstart ring of Tony Khan’s brand for the historical allure of Vince McMahon—now shared with Ari Emanuel.

The only other significant AEW departure was in 2022, with Cody Rhodes’ sneaking back to WWE and taking centre stage at WrestleMania 38. More noteworthy is this—if Cargill’s rumored move proves true, she would be the first AEW wunderkind to take such a leap.
