Cora Jade: NXT 2.0 Opened Up A Lot Of Opportunities For Younger People

Cora Jade believes NXT 2.0 brought more opportunities to the younger portion of the roster.

Although she even been with the company for two whole years yet, Cora Jade has made a big impact in WWE NXT. Jade, who debuted at the beginning of 2021, is already a former NXT Women's Tag Team Champion and has competed in big matches such as the women's War Games match in 2021.

NXT underwent a rebrand late last year, as it transformed in NXT 2.0. This allowed for talent like Jade to be featured and involved on the show more. Although the brand recently dropped the 2.0 moniker, Jade is still being featured prominently on NXT programming.

In a new exclusive interview with Fightful, Jade had nothing but positive things to say about the 2.0 era of NXT, citing that it helped her grow as a performer.

"It’s been a lot. I cam in right towards the end of Black & Gold. My debut match was the Dusty Classic in 2021. Obviously, I wanted NXT Black & Gold, I was an extra for Survivor Series weekend for four days when NXT was part of it. That was crazy, to go from that to being in the Dusty Classic. I wrestled only a few matches in that period. When it switched over to 2.0, I felt like, with change you always wonder what’s going to happen when things change and everyone has their opinion. I felt like, at the time, it was a chance for me to grow and get more opportunities that maybe I wouldn’t have had if it was still how it was. 2.0 really opened up a lot of opportunities for younger people like myself. That change really helped me grow and have these opportunities. I’m so grateful for that. Now we’re moving in a more neutral direction and I don’t know what the future holds, but WWE is a very exciting place right now and I can only imagine that it’s going up from here and I can’t wait to see what the next era is. The Generation of Jade will still be going strong, no matter what."

Elsewhere in the interview, Jade talked about her memorable dive off the cage during a War Games match in 2021. To learn more about that spot, click here.
