Jade Cargill is a polarizing wrestler.
Even she and Tony Khan might admit to starting to push her around before she was ready. But all but its biggest critics understand why AEW made that call. Cargill is a legitimate attraction, with a charismatic personality and compelling personal story to deliver to the mainstream media after her looks and physical talents catch her eye.
For people tuned dynamite And frenzy For wrestling matches, these things don’t matter much. Jade started her career with most of the 48 wins on a streak that Jade started were smashes or were forgotten. Few are memorable for the wrong reasons.
There were flashes of Cargill’s growth into a major event talent (maybe it was because I was there in person, but she… frenzy Match with Anna Jay last January impressed me. I can’t say it was all up from there, though). We got one last night V belt battle In Portland, Oregon.
Overall, her TBS title defense against Sky Blue was an interesting match with some impressive points.

I’m not a professional wrestler, but you don’t have to see how many different ways this move can go wrong. Instead, it’s silky smooth and ends up looking just as poignant as the regular version of the action.
Kudos to both women for a hell of a spot. We hope she continues to have opportunities to grow and shine, because the future can be bright — for undefeated Cargill, and her 23-year-old dance partner.
