Bryan Danielson is very impressed by Jade Cargill.
On January 29, Cargill appeared on the Grapsody podcast and revealed that she has been working with Bryan Danielson as of late. With only 28 singles/tag team matches under her belt, the TBS Champion is one of the fastest-rising and brightest stars in the industry.
Speaking on The Masked Man Show, Danielson commented on the work he's been doing with Jade, pointing out her tremendous work ethic and attitude. Furthermore, he says that she has more presence and looks like a bigger star 11 months into her career than he ever has.
"Pro wrestling is very unique in the sense that anybody if they work hard enough, can get pretty good at this. Whether you make a living from it, that's a different thing, but can get pretty good at the technical aspects of professional wrestling. Again, I think that comes down to a certain discipline. In my short time working with her, she works very hard. She...can I say that I'm jealous? [Laughs]. In the sense that, she's been wrestling a little over ten months, maybe now 11 months, and she comes out with more presence and looks like more of a star than I have ever looked in my entire career. When I work with her too, she's so athletic and strong and when it's time to work, she works. I've been really impressed by her in general and her attitude. It's easy to come in and if you get a big push, to get a big head, and she's not like that at all. I've been impressed by that. When Tony asked us to work together, I've been very impressed with how quickly she learns and how hard she works. Anybody who gets pushed like she does, initially, there is going to be a lot of people who are hard on her and, I've never had that pressure. I really haven't talked to her about this, but there is a certain pressure to being on national TV with less than five months' experience and going out there and having to do a 10-minute match. I can't even imagine. The first time I ever did a live TV match, I had been wrestling for over ten years. I was completely comfortable. It's a completely different ballgame and she's handled it very well," he said.
