Recently it was revealed by Jade why she chose AEW over WWE, The TBS champ was offered a WWE contract by Vince McMahon, but the pressure to put business over family and the fear of becoming just a member made her choose AEW.

“I didn’t have to relocate. I felt at home. I could call the owner of our company [Tony Khan] and talk to him — he knew my name. He knew my purpose. He knew that I wanted to do this. And that mattered to me. I wasn’t just a number. I wasn’t just this person, like who was this person? He knew exactly who I was. So that made me feel comfortable. And yes, the other company was pissed off that they sent me this 100-page contract, but I made the best decision for my family, and I made the best decision for myself. I mean, look at me — I don’t think I would be anywhere close [to my current position if I was in WWE].” (h/t Cageside Seats)
