In a delightful turn of events, WWE has been buzzing with excitement with the much anticipated arrival of Jade Cargill. Signed on September 26, 2023, Jade has since become a noteworthy presence with multiple onscreen appearances.
Being at the heart of these happenings, her magnificent run started with an unforgettable encounter with Shawn Michaels on the October 10 episode of WWE NXT. Making her mark in the WWE isn’t just about onscreen appearances, but intensive preparation behind the scenes. Unsurprisingly, Jade has been spotted numerous times at the WWE Performance Center, rigorously training for her forthcoming in-ring debut.
The buzz isn’t just among fans; fellow wrestlers are equally excited. In an exclusive interview with Uproxx, Bianca Belair shared her enthusiasm for Jade’s arrival. Belair, having been an advocate for increased representation, openly expressed her excitement stating, “It’s always been a huge goal and mission of mine to bring myself and my culture and representation to WWE. And it’s only going to get bigger with Jade coming into the picture.” She further added, “There’s so many amazing possibilities that can come out of it – singles matches, tag matches.”
Indeed, Belair’s assertion echoes the sentiment of many. With Jade’s arrival, the anticipation for an evolved WWE gets a major boost. From being one of the first Black females to main-event WrestleMania to having Jade step into the ring, it’s a clear testimony of how WWE is continuously expanding in terms of inclusion.
While Belair herself has not wrestled since August 18, she hasn’t been away from the scene. Recently, she reunited with the Divas of Compton, who were part of her grand WrestleMania 39 entrance. The group was christened as the WWE Community Champions – a testament to the dedication of the wrestlers towards community building.
