In this context, "wild" is slang that means excellent, special, or unusual. It's similar to the common slang "crazy!" It can also be used as an alternative to "crazy." Ex: It's wild that you're arriving tomorrow. I'm excited to see you! Ex: I didn't know the restaurant fired you. That's wild. What are you going to do now? Ex: Wild!
