News on WWE/Cargill; Storm problem at Dynamite Submitted by Aaron T-Bar Rift on 11/13/2020 at 08:36 AM
- According to Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com, new AEW star Jade Cargill had a tryout with WWE in 2019 but wasn't signed. Meltzer noted that "just based on her look and athletic ability Iím surprised WWE didnít sign her, but they did a complete tryout and there must have been something they didnít like." Meltzer added that Cargill's AEW contract is a "regular" contract with a weekly guarantee.
- The reason there was red carpet outside the ring during this week's AEW Dynamite was due to a tropical storm in the Jacksonville area. While there is a setup above the ring to protect it from rain, wind was blowing rain sideways into the ring and a leaf blower was used to remove the water. There was red carpet left over from the Full Gear pre-show that was placed over the mats so there would be a non-slippery surface. Because of the storm, it's believed that the crowd attendance was the smallest to date since AEW started allowing fans back into Daily's Place.
