In a shocking revelation from recent AEW tapings, one of the promotion’s most prominently featured stars is rumoured to be departing.
But the surprise doesn’t end there. This star isn’t just leaving AEW; they’re anticipated to make a grand move to WWE in the near future.
Jade Cargill, the star in question, made a notable return to AEW on the September 9th episode of Collision. This was her first appearance since the Double Or Nothing pay-per-view in May, where she lost the TBS Championship to Kris Statlander. Following her return, Cargill challenged Statlander for a rematch for the title.
This rematch was recorded after the September 13th Dynamite taping and is scheduled to air on the September 15th episode of Rampage. In a twist, Statlander managed to retain the title in this rematch. This means she remains the only wrestler to have defeated Cargill in AEW, and she’s accomplished this feat twice.
Speculations Surrounding Jade Cargill and her AEW Departure
The rematch on Rampage might have marked Cargill’s final match in AEW. Reports from Fightful Select suggest that Jade Cargill is probably concluding her journey with AEW.
The sources from both AEW and WWE have expressed a strong belief that Cargill is set to join WWE. While nothing is official yet, and there’s no confirmation of a formal offer or the exact end date of Cargill’s AEW contract, the prevailing sentiment is that Cargill’s return to AEW was orchestrated to set up the rematch with Statlander.
This would allow her to elevate Statlander’s profile on her way out, paving her path to WWE.
Cargill’s Previous WWE Connection
Interestingly, this isn’t Cargill’s first brush with WWE. She had a tryout with WWE back in 2019. However, at that time, she opted for AEW over WWE.
Just a week prior to these recent developments, Cargill expressed her loyalty to AEW, stating that there was no other place she’d rather be.
What Lies Ahead?
The wrestling community is abuzz with speculation and anticipation. If Cargill does make the move to WWE, it will undoubtedly be a significant moment in the wrestling world.
Her potential transition could reshape the dynamics of both promotions and offer fans new and exciting matchups.
In the ever-evolving world of professional wrestling, such moves are not uncommon. Wrestlers often switch promotions in search of new challenges, better opportunities, or personal growth.
However, when a star of Cargill’s magnitude is involved, the stakes are higher, and the impact is felt across the industry.
