Cargill talked about training at the Nightmare Factory with QT Marshall, learning from Dustin Rhodes, Chyna’s influence on her, her college basketball career, her fitness business, being a mom to a 3-year old, being a positive role model and much more.
Here are some highlights:
Jade Cargill talked about the coaches and agents she is working with in AEW: “I’ve been working with Dustin. Dustin has been really gearing in and making sure that I literally am prepared. He made my debut super easy for me. He talked me through everything as well as Q.T. at the Nightmare Factory. They have been sitting down talking to me and rehearsing with me making sure that everything is perfect. Dustin wouldn’t have me out there with anything less. It’s a very relaxing community. Dustin is my guy and Q.T. is my guy. I love them. Dustin is all in when it comes to the women’s division as well as Q.T. Dustin is very honest. If you are out there looking crazy, he will definitely tell you that you’re out there looking crazy. He’s old school so he really educates you about a lot of things and being I came from an athletic background, I need that. Right now, he is my mentor.”
Jade was asked who got her interested in professional wrestling: “Chyna. Growing up I’ve always been muscular and I would always get picked on by guys saying, ‘Oh, she looks like this. She looks like a man. She’s too muscular.’ I remember growing up and watching Chyna and seeing how she embodied and loved how she looked and it empowered me and made me say, you know, what, I look good. These muscles look great. She is the one who started my journey with wrestling.”
Jade talked about being trained by Heath Slater: “That’s face to face down in Atlanta, GA. Heath Slater came in a couple times and worked with me. Actually, Mark Henry, my mentor, was the one who referred me to that gym. They made sure that I was prepared to come to AEW and the Nightmare Factory.”
