Brandi Rhodes is the wife of AEW EVP Cody Rhodes and in the early stages of the company, she was one of the mainstays of the women’s division. Eventually, she took a more reserved role. It seems she named-dropped Paul Heyman recently as well.
As seen on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, an in-ring segment with Dan Lambert, Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky took place. Lambert blasted Arn Anderson and TNT Champion Cody Rhodes in the promo. Ethan Page also insulted Brandi for being a so-called wrestler.
Brandi Rhodes came out and interrupted the promo, as she called Dan Lambert a “bobblehead, ugly ass, less talented version of Paul Heyman.” Lambert responded and said he prefers Jim Cornette.
Brandi Rhodes then made it clear she wants to beat up Dan Lambert and in one instance even said if Lambert is a black belt, then she’s “a black b****.; Eventually, Dustin Rhodes came out and brought the situation under control but was then attacked by Sky and laid out as they left to the back.
Brandi Rhodes’ promo was well received by fans on social media, which must have come as a surprise for many as fans have made it clear they don’t want to see her on AEW television. Rhodes is also set to defend his TNT Title against Ethan Page on the New Year’s Smash edition of AEW Rampage. We will have to wait and see how the storyline will progress.
