Jade Cargill left AEW after last week’s Rampage, where she defeated TBS Champion Kris Statlander in a rematch.

Some in AEW believe Cargill is going to WWE for the NXT brand rather than the main roster, while others believe she is going to the main roster due to her contract.

As previously reported, WWE has already begun work on Cargill creative. This week, she is also scheduled to report to the Performance Center for training.

Dave Meltzer mentioned the former AEW star getting a big money deal from WWE while speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio.

“And she’ll get a vocal push because the money to get her, you have to give her a chance to get over because they’re not paying what they would pay a normal person to start there. It’s not like it’s Charlotte Flair money or anything like that or Becky Lynch money, but for a newcomer to the company, it’s much higher than they usually go. So she got a good deal, and they’re talking about her a lot more than they would talk about somebody bringing up that they brought up from NXT. So she ain’t going to be Tegan Nox or somebody who’s brought up or Candice LeRae. That’s just kind of brought up, and she’s going to be.”

Meltzer later added, “Well, she is signed to a main roster deal. She’s not going in there, but she’s not going in there for $68,000 a year.”
