Newly signed WWE Superstar Jade Cargill was a recent guest on The Ringer Wrestling Show. When asked if Cody Rhodes factored into her decision to make the jump from All Elite Wrestling, Cargill admitted that he did.
“He was top three and not third,” Jade Cargill said. “He is a phenomenal man. I seen what the business did for him. I seen him just being the stellar athlete that he is. And I didn’t see any different for myself. But he was one of the guys that, you know, helped make this a great decision.”
When asked who she’ll miss from All Elite Wrestling, Cargill spoke about many of the people over there who still want to see her succeed.
“Ricky Starks, I mean, he’s like my best friend,” Jade Cargill said. “I really just have a knit-tight bubble; I don’t mingle. I don’t do much because it’s a business and I gotta go home to my family and take care of home, I don’t really have that much time.
“But I will say, Ricky Starks, Billy Gunn, QT Marshall. I love Daniel Bryan; great guy, sweet guy. One of the people who was a great mentor to me as well, Dustin Rhodes. It’s a lot of people over there that I’m gonna miss you know, at the end of the day, Mark Henry. But I will say that all the greats over there want to see me succeed.
“I have so many people who are great in this industry that reach out to me that want to succeed. And I appreciate everyone that does reach out to me and wants to see me succeed. These are people who put butts in seats. These are people who got people to pay top dollar to see them. That’s important to me, and I missed Cody Rhodes when he left.
“He’s one of the people who would talk to me and get me to understand the system because it’s not an easy system. It’s different than anything — it’s a different monster. It’s different than anything I’ve been a part of. So all the people that want to see me succeed, they gave me those congratulations.
“But they gave me the congratulations because they had something in their mind that something was up and all I said was thank you. But everybody wants to see me succeed. I’m gonna miss a lot of people over there. Yeah, I’m like really thinking about this right now. But a lot of people want to see me win. So I’m very thankful for those people.”
