Brandi Rhodes on Getting Emotional During Cody Receiving his Lashes From MJF


Brandi Rhodes discussed her reaction to the AEW Dynamite segment where Cody took ten lashes from MJF while with Bryan Alvarez and Mike Sempervive on Wrestling Observer Live

“Moments that he and I have like that are very real. I’m not somebody who can cry on command or anything like that. So whenever I’m crying — I’m also a really, really hard person. Like, I don’t cry a lot in normal life. I can count on my hand how many times I remember crying. So it’s very emotional and real when I am crying, and you know, that segment — it hurt me, because it hurts me to see my husband go through that. I’ve never been hit with a belt like that, and I don’t know what it feels like. But I can hear the noise, the one that — I wasn’t even looking when the ninth lash hit him in the back [from Wardlow], but I heard it. And I remember, I shivered when I heard it. And it just started tears in my eyes, because I knew that that had to be the most terrible thing to endure.

“And I came down to him at the ring, and the things that I said to him, I meant. If I could have taken the last one, I would have. I would have taken it, and then I would have jumped up and scratched that man’s eyes out. [laughs] Because it would have hurt so bad, that I just would have reacted and absolutely attacked somebody. But yeah, moments like that you can’t recreate because they’re real. He and I have a real natural emotional bond with each other. We’ve been through so much together in the past eight years here and everything’s just very real, and very emotional.”
