Brandi Rhodes is the Chief Branding Officer of AEW but it’s still a regular active competitor for the brand as well. This past summer, she was a part of a tag team tournament that was exclusive to the women in AEW and she continues to hone her craft every chance she gets.
Speaking with Bleacher Report, Brandi Rhodes opened up about training sporadically with both members of the tag team that she manages, the Natural Nightmares, QT Marshall and Dustin Rhodes.
“My training has been sporadic over the last five years. Over that time span, the most committed is QT Marshall. His school is here in Atlanta, and he would help me and train me. I’m actually getting ready to head to QT’s school right now and train with the guys.”
She continued, “Every week, Dustin [Rhodes] holds a class. I’m there every single time. Jerry Lynn has been amazing when it comes to the matches. After I have a match, I always go to Jerry because he is not going to blow any smoke up my behind. We’re all still growing. I watch Cody go to Jerry [Lynn] or Arn [Anderson] after a match, and he is one of the best wrestlers in the world, so if he is doing that, we should all be doing that.”
One of the latest signings to their women’s roster is the current NWA Women’s Champion, Serena Deeb. Brandi reveals that she’s trained with her on occasion and would love a chance to test her skills in the ring in a proper match.
“I would love to wrestle Serena [Deeb]. I think she is amazing. Training with her here and there, she is somebody you pick things up from without knowing you’re doing it. She’s very fluid in the ring, and I think we could have a really nice match.”
Brandi can be seen on AEW Dynamite, AEW Dark, or her own YouTube series, A Shot of Brandi which regularly features guests in the kitchen with Brandi.
