It’s not easy being Jade Cargill. She did receive a huge boost on her entry into the AEW, but things were a lot different before she starred in her first match. As a women’s wrestler, Cargill revealed that she faced a lot of hindrances before choosing this as her career path. The criticism was not just from the public, but from her own mother who was not a fan of her wrestling desires. Cargill’s mother opposed her entry into the wrestling world, despite which she made a bold move of joining AEW. 

One bad start could have killed her hopes. However, Cargill got the best start ever to her career and LA champion Shaquille O’Neal was one of the reasons. Cargill got the opportunity to tag-team with the 7-foot giant on her debut in the AEW in 2020.
