Brandi Rhodes Reveals Why She Didn’t Want To Delay The Mixed Tag With Shaq


During a recent appearance on “The Hashtag Show”, AEW Chief Brand Officer Brandi Rhodes revealed why she didn’t want to delay the mixed tag team match featuring her husband Cody Rhodes and Red Velvet against Shaquille O’Neal and Jade Cargill. As many of you know, Brandi found out she was pregnant just before the match was going to take place. She said,

“It was at the peak, the very beginning of an important match up that was going to happen in AEW involving Shaq. One thing that was said to me was, ‘We can wait, this match can wait until you’re back.’ It was very important to me that the match press on, with or without me. It was an opportunity for someone else to get in there and show what they can do. It’s stories like that, that you don’t hear. That I gave up an opportunity…I would have something great to come back to right now. A major thing to return and wrestle Shaq and Jade. Red Velvet got to wrestle that because I said, ‘let’s do this. I think it should be Red Velvet, I think she has what it takes.’ She showed up that and then from there you see her in the main event of Rampage. That is what it should be. Sometimes, you do have to look outside of yourself and make a wave for somebody else.“
