Brandi Rhodes is pregnant and they made the big announcement on AEW Dynamite this week. This is a happy time for the Nightmare Family, but it will likely call for a change of plans.
AEW featured Shaquille O’Neal on the show last week. It seemed as if they were building toward a match with Brandi Rhodes and Jade Cargill. Shaq was likely going to be in Jade’s corner. Brandi Rhodes also threw a cup of water in Shaq’s face to really drive home the angle.
This new pregnancy announcement from Brandi certainly means that she won’t be wrestling for at least nine months. If Shaq is still going to come in and do something with AEW then odds are Brandi Rhodes won’t be around. She could always stand at ringside, but the pro wrestling ring is a very unpredictable place.
We’ll have to see how AEW works around this situation. It is a very happy announcement, but those plans with Shaq might have already been made. Now AEW might need to do some adjusting if they want to continue with the NBA Hall of Famer’s angle.
