In a surprising turn of events, Jade Cargill, who recently made a return appearance on AEW's "Collision" episode, is reportedly on the brink of an unexpected exit. Sources from Fightful Select have intimated that Cargill is gearing up to depart from AEW, with speculations of her signing on with WWE gaining traction.
The buzz about her imminent departure gained momentum when Cargill locked horns with Kris Statlander on Wednesday in what is believed to be her final AEW match, slated for broadcast on "AEW Rampage" this Friday. It was a curveball for many when AEW announced Cargill vs.
Statlander 2, especially considering it was a rematch following Cargill's sole loss. The outcome of this match was a clear Statlander victory, further fueling speculations of Cargill's looming exit.
Jade Cargill's WWE Transition?
While Fightful's sources couldn’t pinpoint the exact expiration date of Cargill's AEW contract or provide confirmation on an official WWE offer, the prevailing chatter within the confines of both WWE and AEW locker rooms seems to lean heavily towards Cargill's imminent transition to WWE.
Tracking her wrestling trajectory, Cargill, over the span of her two-and-a-half-year professional journey, has graced the ring in 64 matches, all under the AEW banner. If the murmurs from Fightful materialize, Cargill would join the ranks as the second prominent AEW talent to swap Tony Khan's innovative "challenger brand" for the veteran turf of WWE, overseen by Vince McMahon and now steered by Ari Emanuel.
It's noteworthy to mention that Cargill would be the maiden homegrown AEW talent to make this move. For context, AEW witnessed its first high-profile shift in 2022 when Cody Rhodes marked his WWE comeback at WrestleMania 38.
As the wrestling community awaits confirmation on these developments, Cargill's potential move underscores the ever-evolving dynamics of the professional wrestling landscape.
