In a jaw-dropping twist familiar to the wrestling community, former TBS Champion Jade Cargill’s much-anticipated move to WWE became a reality on September 26th, following the expiration of her contract with AEW. Astute wrestling aficionados, with their fingers ever-pulsing on the industry's heartbeat, had foreseen this dramatic shift, making the announcement one of wrestling’s proverbially worst-kept secrets.

Upon this announcement, an immediate flurry of speculative excitement regarding possible match-ups ensued, with Bianca Belair's name surging to the top of myriad lists. The prospect of these two prominent figures clashing in the ring not only promises a thrilling spectacle but also underscores the heights to which women's wrestling has soared in recent years.

Ford Emphasizes Significance

In an enlightening discussion with the New York Post, Montez Ford, WWE star and Belair’s spouse, illuminated the sheer significance of a potential confrontation between Cargill and Belair.

Ford underscored, “The fact that they’re both been talked about in such a high regard lets you know the importance of both of these women. I don’t even have to tell you about the importance to women’s wrestling”.

Montez further extolled both athletes for the remarkable hype and expectation they've managed to generate despite not having “even said too much to each other yet”. This sentiment not only encapsulates fans' enthrallment but also illustrates a palpable respect for the athletes' dedication and skill.

Emphasizing the broader implications of this anticipated showdown, Ford articulated, “Not only is it looked at in high regard, but it gives more women’s wrestlers, women of culture this motivation to do this same thing as well, and at such a very, very, high level, both of them, specifically my wife as well”.

Thus, as the wrestling community keenly awaits an official announcement of a match, this potential face-off symbolizes more than a mere clash of titans. It personifies the aspiration, achievement, and visibility of women in the wrestling sphere, propelling the narrative beyond the ring, into realms of inspiration and representation.

As we stand on the precipice of what could be one of the most electrifying confrontations in women’s wrestling, the ramifications reverberate, solidifying the stature of women in the sport.
