Brandi Rhodes Talks Being a Female Executive in Pro Wrestling


Brandi Rhodes spoke at the Women of AEW panel and discussed what it is like having an executive role in a male-dominated industry like wrestling:

“I’m in a tough spot. Because, forever, wrestling has been a boys club. The Bullet Club is a boys club, and I’m loosely associated with being part of the Bullet Club. It’s always tough to be the girl,” she said. “Matt, Nick, Cody, Kenny, they’re all best friends. I’m not. I’m Cody’s best friend. That’s it. So there’s a lot of work that has to be done by me to gain trust with that group. There’s a lot of, ‘just trust me. Let me do my job.’ That has to happen a lot.”
“I don’t think a lot of people know this yet, but I work very closely with our PR executive. Her name is Mandy O’Donnell, and she’s a crazy badass, too. I mean, I’m not sure if everybody knows this too. Awesome Kong. She’s one of our coaches. She’s not just a competitor. She’s the female coach. So we’re getting there.”
