Cora Jade explains how her time on the independent scene before WWE helped her

Cora Jade made her WWE debut in 2021. However, before signing a contract with the wrestling promotion, she had already made a name for herself, impressing fans during her time on the independent scene. Jade also made a few appearances in TNA and AEW before signing with the Stamford-based company.

In a conversation with Nick Hausman, the NXT star explained how working on the independent scene helped her. She claimed that she wanted to experience the indie scene despite the WWE being her end goal:

“I feel like it definitely helped me, and I’m so grateful for all my time on the indies. I feel like I got to work with a lot of people and a lot of people helped me get here. And I feel I wanted the indie experience. Obviously WWE was always my goal, my end goal, but I grew up watching CM Punk, Jon Moxley, Daniel Bryan, all these people who came up through the indies. So I always wanted that indie experience and I wanted to work my way up, work through all these different companies. So I think it did help me a lot. And there’s a lot of things I still take with me to this day that I learned on the indies. So I’m very grateful for that,” she said.

Cora Jade returned from injury after five months at NXT Deadline 2023. Unfortunately, she tore her ACL a month later. It remains to be seen how long she will take before returning to in-ring action.
