Triple H explains what happened to Jade Cargill

Jade Cargill signed with WWE and immediately made a series of appearances at Fastlane, Monday Night Raw, Friday Night SmackDown, and NXT television. The company pushed her as hard as anyone else on the roster, with a promotional blitz that made clear they see her as a top star for years to come.

And then she completely disappeared.

It’s been some time now since her name has even been mentioned on WWE television, so when the media got the chance to ask Triple H about her at the Survivor Series post-show press conference, they didn’t pass it up.

Here’s what he had to say about her:

“Jade is… I have no less belief in her now than I did then. It’s interesting when she came in we talked about her development and where she would land but what the development was. I want to make sure that no matter what is thrown at Jade Cargill she’s ready. And, at no fault of her own, I think she was limited in that, right? So the idea is, we exposed her, we made her be seen, people are understanding, and they’re waiting, and they’re excited for her to come. When she does, it’s going to be massive.

“I just think that we’re just making sure that when she’s ready… I don’t want a pitch to get thrown at her that she’s never seen before. I want no matter what that pitch is she’s going to crack that thing out of the park. Because that’s… you can just see it in her. That’s the presence she has, that’s the star she is. You’ve yet to see her do anything in WWE and yet I can probably name five or 10 people here who would go like ‘oh, that’s a dream match’ without her doing a thing. So I’m in no rush for her to… when she says ‘I’m ready’ I’m ready.”

Plenty of folks are going to take note of the fact that he mentions she was limited in her development “through no fault of her own,” which sure sounds like a shot at AEW. But he’s also made clear plenty of times in the past that WWE has its own way of presenting its stars on television, and there’s a learning curve for anyone coming in from another company who may not do things the way they do.

Especially someone as young into the game as Cargill.

Either way, it sounds like they still have big plans for her. We’re just going to have to wait and see.
