All Elite Wrestling announces the signing of Jade Cargill to a multi-year contract.
Cargill’s signing comes off of Wednesday’s episode of Dynamite. She came out to confront and taunt Cody Rhodes, which included the tease of a possible match between Cody and NBA Legend Shaquille O’Neal. As Cargill headed backstage, she was then interrupted by Brandi Rhodes, in which the two had a short altercation that was broken up by AEW Agent Jerry Lynn.
Cargill trained under QT Marshall at his Nightmare Factory in Georgia, as well as the Face 2 Face Wrestling School owned by Richard Borger and IMPACT star Heath (former WWE star Heath Slater).
Cargill also played basketball at Jacksonville University in Jacksonville.

All Elite Wrestling Signs Jade Cargill to Women’s Division
— AEW’s Latest Newcomer Wasted No Time Making a Splash on DYNAMITE –
November 12, 2020 – AEW today announced a multi-year deal with rising wrestling sensation Jade Cargill, who made an electric debut last night on AEW DYNAMITE.
During last night’s live show on TNT, Cody Rhodes was speaking about wanting another shot at MJF when he was dramatically interrupted by Jade, who proceeded to run down Cody’s “Giant Killer” moniker. She revealed that she knows a real giant, none other than Shaq. Cody’s wife, Brandi Rhodes, then stormed into the ring to defend her husband’s honor.
“I joined AEW because here I have a voice,” said Jade. “I’m ready to shake up the women’s division, and I’m going to flip this promotion on its head.”
Jade, who played basketball at Jacksonville University in Jacksonville, Fla., brings a high level of athleticism and intensity to the AEW women’s division. With her background as a professional trainer and explosive demeanor on the mic, Jade is poised to make a powerful impression inside and outside the ring.
“We’re committed to expanding the AEW women’s division by signing great athletes,” said Tony Khan, CEO and GM of AEW. “Jade is an amazing athlete, and she’s an exciting addition to our women’s roster. I’m confident that fans will enjoy getting to know Jade’s strong personality and watching her development as a wrestler after her surprising confrontation with Cody and Brandi Rhodes last night on Dynamite.”
