Athlete Jade Cargill, who recently became a viral sensation on social media for her cosplay of Marvel’s Storm She has signed an official contract with All Elite Wrestling.
Jade Cargill has signed a contract with Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling. She was recently a hit on social media after cosplaying as Storm from Marvel Comics. In addition, she made headlines when she made a mockery of the basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal’s arrival in the promotion.
Cargill appeared on last night’s episode of AEW Dynamite that aired on TNT. She confronted Cody, AEW’s executive vice president (also called Cody Rhodes, and his real name is Cody Runnels), in the ring. Cargill ended her promo by saying, “Oh, by the way, congrats on your name,” about the fact that Cody was recently granted the right to make use of the name Cody Rhodes following an agreement that he had signed by his previous employer WWE. “But I’m guessing you didn’t have the balls to choose a single name. The ‘giant’ you mentioned, oh he’s the real star. Do you know his name? Shaq.”

Cargill referenced the tweet and said that it was “only the beginning.”
In addition to her X-Men cosplay, which has been gaining some attention on Twitter and Instagram, Cargill is a former high school and college basketball player, as well as a mental health and online fitness coach. Cargill’s journey into the professional world of wrestling began some time ago. She even enrolled in WWE Performance Center in 2019!
