Brandi Rhodes won’t completely rule it out, but doesn’t plan on wrestling again right now.
During a new interview with Steve Fall for The Ten Count, Brandi Rhodes addressed her status in wrestling and where she currently stands. Brandi said she doesn’t plan on wrestling right now and cited reasons why, but wouldn’t go as far as saying it would never happen again.
“You know, I’m very big on… I’m the one that’s very big on not saying absolutes. As we know, my husband likes to say absolutes and then life happens. I’m not going to say absolutes, but I will say right now, it’s not in my plan. I kind of did myself a good service, I think, in taking a beat. My number one priority when everything happened, we left AEW, my number one priority was making sure my husband’s dream was realized. Because hey, it’s been a dream that’s been in the making for him since he was four years old. So I think it’s a good thing that you press forward and you’ve got to see this through. I was kind of always on the back burner in that sense and working on other things; I’ve got Shot Of Brandi, I started doing this podcast and I have some other things that are cooking in the non-wrestling world.
“So in that period of time, I got to spend a lot of time with my daughter, I got to watch her develop in these unexpected ways and find these different things that she’s really thriving at and really liking. I want to really be part of it, so when I look at life in wrestling there’s the inevitable traveling. It’s a choice that you have to make that you’re going to travel with your child or not. If I were to travel with my child, then I’m taking her away from some of the environments that she’s used to now and thriving in. So I won’t say no it’s not going to happen, but I will say right now, it’s not front of the line for me.”
Brandi Rhodes hasn’t officially wrestled since January, when she faced KiLynn King on the January 31 episode of AEW Dark: Elevation. It was reported that she’s worked some WWE Performance Center matches against newer talent, but she has not appeared on WWE TV.
