Brandi Rhodes recently spoke to Newsweek about the state of the All Elite Wrestling Women’s Division.

In the interview, she discusses how much she enjoys the inaugural women’s champion, Riho, “People will continue to be hooked because it was hard not to be connected to something on that show,” she said. “I loved what I saw from her the other night. I felt the wave of emotion, her fight. I wanted her to win by the end.”

Brandi also discussed the potential of a women’s tag team division, “You never want to rush into things because you put unnecessary pressure on competitors that don’t need to be there. Each championship is unfolding as we go,” she said. “Pretty confident that [AEW President] Tony Khan is on record saying he would want a women’s tag division. I want a women’s tag division.”

Riho defeated Nyla Rose on the inaugural episode of AEW Dynamite to win the AEW Women’s World Championship. Tonight she’s in tag team action. It’ll be Bea Priestley & Emi Sukura vs World Women’s Champion Riho & Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D.
