Athlete Jade Cargill, who recently was a sensation on social media for her cosplay of Marvel’s Storm, has officially signed with All Elite Wrestling.
Athlete and fitness instructor Jade Cargill, who recently was a sensation on social media due to her portrayal of the Marvel Comics character Storm, has signed a contract to Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling. In addition in her first appearance, she played a joke about the basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal’s appearance in the promotion.
Cargill appeared on last night’s episode of AEW Dynamite, airing on TNT. She was confronted by Cody, the AEW executive vice president (also called Cody Rhodes, and his real name is Cody Runnels), in the ring. “Oh and by the way, congratulations on your name,” Cargill said as she left the arena for her promo, referencing the fact that Cody recently gained the right to use the name Cody Rhodes after reaching an agreement with her former employer WWE. “But you’re not even having the courage to use one name,” Cargill added. That ‘giant’ that you were talking about Oh, he’s the star. What’s his name? Shaq.”

Today, the official AEW Twitter account announced Cargill as a new member of the promotion’s roster. The account shared an image of her with the caption, “Jade Cargill is #AllElite,” which has become an expectation for the new AEW signees. Cargill quoted the post and stated that this was “only the beginning.”
Cargill who was an ex-college and high school basketball player, and also a coach for mental health and fitness online, has been a part of the pro-wrestling world since long ago. Her journey into the world of professional wrestling began a while ago, with Cargill even trying out WWE’s Performance Center in 2019. Then, she began her training at AR Fox’s WWA4 Wrestling School.
