AEW TBS Champ Jade Cargill Talks Plans on Beating Taya Valkyrie

Updated: Aug 8, 2023

CEO of WWT, TK Trinidad, sits down with AEW TBS Champion Jade Cargill to discuss what it takes to be a champ for over 500 plus days, her relationship with Tony Khan, and her plans on beating Taya Valkyrie at AEW’s Double or Nothing.

Jade Cargill Talks Her Game Plan to Beat Taya Valkyrie Again

“Just be myself. I know I’ve got this in the bag. I’m not worried. I beat her once. Regardless, I will end up on top, like I always do. I guess I have to make this seem like a challenge. And I’m okay with that. Like, I don’t know how she even wiggled her way back up here again. “

Jade Cargill Talks About Her Relationship with Tony Khan

“So let’s just start from the beginning. Tony was one of the reasons I chose this company. You know, we had a long conversation. I told him what I wanted and how hard I worked. And, you know, I believed in his vision, and he’s so hungry, and I’m used to being the underdog; like underdogs, I show a good fight. And I love that. He just loves wrestling, like the man loves wrestling. I don’t know how he does it; he gets literally no sleep.

He’s never missed a show. You know, he has other things going on. But he has never missed one of our shows. And if he can’t make time, he’ll try his best to make time for everybody. He’s torn a million and one ways. You know? We talked about a vision I have for myself: “You know, I’m only two and a half years into this thing; I want to be a household name. I’m going to be a household name.”

Jade Cargill Tells Us Who She Wants To Win Between Jamie Hayter & Toni Storm for the AEW Women’s World Championship

“Jamie Hayter…hard hitter, a hard-working woman. She puts on bangers, and she’s a hard hitter. So I think she might just take Toni Storm’s head off.”

Jade Cargill Talks About the Advice Bryan Danielson Gave Her

“Bryan is always saying phenomenal things to me. And I remember one time I was working with him and we were talking about something, I think it was like my role and like doing moves and stuff, and he was like, ‘No, you’re a star, you’re a superstar. You’re in a different realm, and you know that. You have to do something a certain way.’ And he was telling me to just calm down. Because I want to be great, so I’m like, “Let’s watch a film now; let’s do this now.”

I want to get this all out right now… like I feel iffy, so let’s talk about it. And he’s just like, ‘Take your time; you are on a fast track right now. I know the internet might say this, and it might say that, but it takes several years to get into this and be comfortable. And even if you are out here, sinking or swimming, whatever, you can’t tell. You can’t tell. Be gentle. And it’s all about having fun. I’ve said that before.’ He always asked me about having fun.”
