WWE is a place where consistent hard work will definitely get you to the top. The best living examples of that are superstars like Dwayne Johnson, John Cena and Becky Lynch to name a few. But right now there is some fresh blood in the business who wants to achieve a similar level of greatness. We are talking about MLB legend Brandon Phillips wife and WWE’s newest signee, Jade Cargill.

On her recent appearance on The Masked Man Show, the host went on to compare her to Kurt Angle who in spite of being a rookie like Cargill in the WWE, was very commanding at the start of his career. She then spoke about what she really values in the WWE. Cargill said, “Quality coaching staff, the best training facility that you can get in the entire world. That’s what this system can do for me and I’m eager to start”. Cargill might be referring to the Performance Center of WWE where she has begun training already.

Then she went on to add that she isn’t in the WWE for the money but to create a legacy for her family and daughter. She said, “I’m here because I’m hungry, I love what I do, and I want to create a name for myself and I wanna create a legacy for my daughter, my family and I mean that. I don’t need the money, the money is great, thank you. I appreciate that but this comes from the heart. This is something I’ve picked up and I will not put down until I become a great”.

But talking about greatness, Jade Cargill had already achieved a lot in very little time in AEW.

Jade Cargill had the longest reign for any AEW championship

Cargill started off with AEW in 2020 and left them after her contract ended in 2023. That’s when WWE approached her and now she is on this side of the fence. But when she was in AEW, she developed a huge fan base which will definitely follow her to the WWE. She also won the inaugural AEW TBS Championship.

She then held onto the title for 508 days, which is the longest title reign ever in AEW’s history. Cargill eventually lost the title at PPV Double or Nothing in May 2023. Obviously, if she has to become the greatest in the WWE, she has to beat some of the best talent like  Rhea Ripley. Only time will tell whether this clash of titans will ever happen. As of now, Cargill is just being welcomed cheekily by WWE stars. But what are your opinions on Jade Cargill’s hunger to achieve greatness in the WWE?
