AEW President Tony Khan recently talked about the rumors of former TBS Champion Jade Cargill’s departure from AEW. Cargill is reportedly WWE bound and is expected to begin training the Performer Center in Orlando, FL as early as this week.
Cargill has been one of the most dominant female performers of AEW’s Women’s Division. She made her pro wrestling debut back in March 2021 when she teamed up with NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal against Cody Rhodes and Red Velvet. She had an iconic 508-day reign as the TBS Champion.
Jade Cargill recently made her return to AEW programming and during the September 14 edition of AEW Dynamite, it was announced that the former TBS Champion would be challenging Kris Statlander for the TBS Title on the September 16 edition of AEW Rampage.
Kris Statlander was successful in retaining the TBS Championship. It marked Cargill’s final appearance for AEW and her profile was also removed from AEW’s website.
In an interview with Josh Martinez for Superstar Crossover, Tony Khan was asked to comment on the rumors surrounding Jade Cargill.
“Jade had a great match on Friday night on AEW Rampage. It was a great match against Kris Statlander,” Tony Khan said. “Kris Statlander retained the TBS Championship on Rampage on Friday night. I thought that was a great match. Definitely one of the best matches I’ve seen either of them have. I thought it was a great main event for the show.
“As far as Jade goes, I can’t really comment on that, except to say that Jade’s been a great wrestler for AEW, and certainly always welcome in AEW. [She] could always be somebody we would always love to work with here in AEW.
