Jade Cargill, the latest sensation to switch from AEW to WWE, has been on the receiving end of an enthusiastic reception from both WWE enthusiasts and superstars like Bayley. However, this transition is tinged with nostalgia for Cargill, as she reminisces about the bonds she forged during her time in AEW.
In a candid conversation with "The Ringer Wrestling Show," Cargill delved into the intricacies of her personal life and professional relationships. "While I maintain a tight-knit circle and prefer to stay rooted at home with my family post-shows, there are individuals in AEW whom I've cherished," she said.
Rick Starks, notably mentioned as her best buddy, tops the list, followed by other notable figures like Billy Gunn, QT Marshall, and Daniel Bryan. Cargill expressed deep admiration for Bryan, describing him as a supportive mentor throughout her AEW journey.
Names like Dustin Rhodes and Mark Henry also appeared on Cargill's list of friends she'll sorely miss. Yet, amidst the emotional departures, she's heartened by the goodwill she has received from wrestling legends and top-tier stars.
"The overwhelming support from industry stalwarts, those who've been genuine crowd-pullers, means the world to me," Cargill expressed with gratitude.
Cargill's WWE Reunion
Interestingly, Cargill's move to WWE is also marked by reunions.
She's particularly excited to work alongside Cody Rhodes, a former AEW colleague and influential figure in her career. Emphasizing the pivotal role Rhodes played in her transition, Cargill shared, "Cody's guidance was indispensable.
Navigating the WWE realm is a unique challenge, vastly different from my previous experiences. His insights were a significant catalyst in my decision to join WWE." As the wrestling world keenly watches, Cargill's journey in WWE promises a blend of fresh excitement and valued camaraderie from her AEW days.
