Wrestling fans, it seems like change is on the horizon. After Jade Cargill’s successful tenure with All Elite Wrestling (AEW) that saw her winning the AEW TBS Championship and holding onto it with the longest reign in the company’s history, she is now pivotally positioned to make her World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) in-ring debut.
The news has been making the rounds ever since WWE confirmed on September 26, 2023, that Cargill, a free agent after the expiration of her AEW contract earlier in the month, was brought on board with a multiyear deal. And now, sources have reported that Cargill is “slated to appear” at the WWE Fastlane on October 7, 2023.
Cargill’s transition from AEW to WWE has garnered much attention and anticipation within the wrestling community. One of those equally excited about this new addition is WWE superstar, Raquel Rodriguez. Reflecting on Cargill’s arrival on WWE’s show, ‘The Bump,’ Rodriguez stated, “I think it is great. Like we were talking about, our women’s division is growing. We are main-eventing different shows on all the platforms all the way across. We need another talent from an outside company like Jade to come in. She’s got such a massive following.”
Rodriguez’s welcoming perspective extends to the competitive aspect as well. She warmly joked about the looming potential face-off, saying, “She’s just adding to the list of ‘big girls’ that someone has got to squash – probably me.” Rodriguez also viewed this as an opportunity to raise the bar for competition in the women’s division and heighten the star power.
