From moving to the wrestling world, Jade Cargill was a top star at All Elite Wrestling (AEW) before moving to join World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). This comes in the wake of her high-profile departure from AEW in August after dropping a title rematch to Kris Statlander on Rampage.

Cargill, a former AEW TBS Championship, has transitioned to WWE and has since been making rounds at different shows over the past couple of months. Irrespective of those looks, the fans were awaiting her in-ring debut in WWE, and it finally happened in the Women's Royal Rumble match in 2024.

And it was a brilliant showing when Cargill managed to do away with Nia Jax and acquired an impressive third finish in that match among very stiff competition. Her debut had the effect not only spotlighting how exceptional she is at playing the role of a pro wrestler but also set off a storyline fight between WWE officials Adam Pearce and Nick Aldis, both vying for Cargill on their brand.

That intrigue was all the more tantalizing with a segment on a recent episode of SmackDown in which Cargill teased an affiliation with SmackDown as a brand.

Cargill's WWE Confirmation

The month-long anticipation of Cargill finally signing with WWE, which created much buzz and a ceaseless cycle of speculation, burst into the open on 17 February 2024 when WWE confirmed her addition to the roster on their official website.

The formal announcement says it all; it marks a great milestone in the career of Cargill and shows raising star in the wrestling industry. She had signed with the WWE months ago, but it was only in recent weeks that she'd really started to make a name for herself and show why she belonged to the company.

Cargill's signing with WWE is set to offer a new dimension to the women's division and offers the promise of some exciting matchups and storylines. It's no doubt that Jade Cargill is going to be one of the key wrestlers of WWE—by just her pure talent in athleticism both inside and outside the ring, and sheer charisma. All eyes are on the journey of Cargill's wrestling experience in the WWE as both insiders and fans observe intently.
