In a recent interview with "The Porch," Jaida Parker, an emerging talent in WWE's NXT, expressed her aspiration to emulate the impact made by former AEW TBS Champion Jade Cargill in the wrestling world. Cargill, who made headlines with her signing to WWE in late September, has been a topic of excitement among WWE Superstars, including the legendary Shawn Michaels.
Parker, who joined the WWE NXT roster last year, is setting her sights high, aiming to garner a similar level of enthusiasm and recognition. "I'm striving to achieve the same level of awe and anticipation that surrounded Jade Cargill when she entered WWE," Parker stated.
"She's not just a stunning presence but also an exceptional athlete. My goal is to evoke that same reaction, to be someone that both the fans and other wrestlers are eager to see, like Becky [Lynch], Trish Stratus, Zoey Stark, Lita, Rhea [Ripley], Sasha Banks, Naomi, and others in that esteemed group."
Parker's Ascent in NXT
Parker, who transitioned to professional wrestling from a successful soccer career at LSU, first caught WWE's attention during tryouts held in WrestleMania 38 week in Dallas, Texas.
Her recent participation in the 2023 "NXT" Women's Breakout Tournament, though short-lived, has not deterred her determination to rise through the ranks of NXT and, hopefully, secure a spot on WWE's main roster in the future.
Meanwhile, Jade Cargill's journey in WWE is being closely watched by fans and industry insiders alike. Despite not yet being assigned to a specific WWE brand, Cargill's presence was felt during the October 24 episode of "NXT," where she witnessed Lyra Valkyria claim the "NXT" Women's Championship from Becky Lynch.
As Parker continues to develop her skills and persona in NXT, the wrestling community is keen to see if she can follow in the footsteps of her role model, Cargill, and make a significant impact in the world of professional wrestling.
Her journey, from an athletic background to the wrestling ring, mirrors the path of many successful WWE Superstars and holds promise for a bright future in the sport.
