Khan said of Cargill’s obvious star power:

“And the average person who isn’t really watching wrestling but might be open to it, will walk up and say like ‘oh my God you’re the champion of wrestling? You look amazing! Oh my God you’re a pro wrestler huh?’ and I’ve walked around with some of the biggest names in pro-wrestling, and the person that the average fan walks over to, because they’ve never seen wrestling before, they’re like ‘oh my God’ to Jade she looks like a star like you said and I totally agree with what you said Brandon, she’s got so much potential and right now like you asked, yeah I think she is way far ahead of where anyone would’ve expected for somebody who is so young and the wrestling career she’s a great athlete, a college athlete and a bodybuilder and a mom and a great person and she’s been awesome for AEW.”
