It's been months since WWE announced the signing of one of the hottest free agents in wrestling history, and the WWE Universe is getting antsy. While WWE is arguably red-hot on all fronts, bolstered by the recent shocking returns of CM Punk and Randy Orton, there's still one question on the mind of every fan at the moment:

How to Watch

When will Jade Cargill make her highly-anticipated in-ring debut?

In October, the former wrestling champion wasted no time making her presence felt across all three WWE brands, appearing in successive fashion on NXT, SmackDown, and Raw. 

However, the WWE Universe hasn't seen Jade since she stared down Charlotte FlairBecky Lynch, and other established Superstars, whetting the fans' appetites for larger-than-life showdowns down the road. Where has Jade been in the last two months, and when will she finally compete in a WWE ring? Fortunately, The Dallas Morning News recently tracked Jade down and demanded answers to some of the WWE Universe's most pressing questions.

When Will Jade Cargill Make Her WWE In-Ring Debut?

We have to give them credit: The outlet didn't pull any punches and asked Jade point-blank where she's been and what's been stopping Jade from making her in-ring debut nearly two-and-a-half months after her much-publicized signing

"So, listen, I think the fan base should be patient," Jade advised. "I think they need to understand we're making a diamond. We're creating something that's gonna be a legacy. We're creating something that's going to create echoes and waves throughout not just the wrestling culture, but pop culture and beyond. They're setting me up for success – you shouldn't rush success."

We could've sworn Jade was already a diamond – she already looks like she's carved out of stone – but again, she's in the big leagues now, and it seems any bad habits Jade picked up in the minor leagues need to be addressed by WWE officials. Regardless, Jade still has plenty of experience under her belt and reassured the WWE Universe that she's ready to make an impact as soon as she gets the green light!

"I've been on TV in front of thousands of people several times, one thing I know how to do is entertain a crowd," Jade explained. "And no one – no one – can say different. I can do that. The WWE Universe knows exactly what they're doing. I trust them. I believe in this system. And when they see me in that ring, understand, there's no turning back. [WWE] 's believing in everything I'm doing, given me everything that I could fathom. And I'm going to be ready. I'm already ready. But again, it's on my time, and everybody should be patient. And when I come, just understand I'm taking over."

Like most debuts, the WWE Universe should learn to exercise patience. After all, perhaps WWE (and Jade Cargill herself) are targeting a more high-profile moment to make her in-ring debut – would a 2024 Royal Rumble debut fit the bill? Many fans think so; perhaps that's where this is all headed.

While Jade professes to be "already ready" and intends to take over the women's division, it leaves all of us wondering which WWE Superstar she'll set her sights on. 

Who Will Be Jade Cargill's First Opponent in WWE?

We don't know what we expected, but Jade gave another cagey response when asked who in the WWE women's locker room is in her crosshairs. While Jade has alluded to tangling with multi-time women's champion Bianca Belair in the past, she decided to keep this particular round of information to herself this time around.  

"You'll just have to see. Just know when I start, there's no stopping," Jade revealed. "There's no breaks and everybody should be elated. So whomever wants to come get it, I got it. I'm just gonna give out work. Come apply."

We have to congratulate Jade; she is already an expert on leaving the WWE Universe hanging on her every word while never giving up the inside scoop – it's like she's been a WWE Superstar for years already. And hey, it looks like she already has a handle on a potential catchphrase – "Come apply" could have legs!

If – and when – Jade Cargill's in-ring debut date is set, we'll be among the first to know, so stay locked in to USA Insider for any news. We'll keep you posted.
