When Cody Rhodes made his triumphant return to WWE, many fans assumed that Brandi Rhodes would follow in his footsteps. Brandi was with her husband backstage at WrestleMania 38 but is yet to appear on WWE TV with him. Cody himself is still recovering from a torn pectoral which he suffered in June and may not be back for another few months.
Brandi’s last match came at the start of the year when she competed on AEW Dark: Elevation. This match came just a month after she had come back from pregnancy but hasn’t stepped back into the ring since. Many are curious over when or if Brandi will appear on WWE TV and, while speaking to Steve Fall on Ten Count, Brandi has attempted to clarify the situation regarding her wrestling career.
“I’m the one that’s very big in the family on not saying absolutes. As we know, my husband likes to say absolutes and then life happens. I’m not going to say absolutes, but I will say, right now, it’s not in my plan. I kind of did myself a good service in taking a beat. My number one priority when everything happened and we left AEW, my number one priority was making sure my husband’s dream was realized. It’s been a dream in the making for him since he was four years old. It’s a good thing that we pressed forward and got to see this through. I was always on the back burner and working on other things. I got Shot of Brandi in the ether, I started doing this podcast. I have other things cooking in the non-wrestling world. In that period of time, I got to spend a lot of time with my daughter, I got to watch her develop in these unexpected ways and find these different things that she is thriving at and liking. I want to be part of that. When I look at life in wrestling, there is the inevitable travel and it’s the choice you have to make that you travel with your child or not. If I were to travel with my child, I’m taking her away from some environments she’s used to. I won’t say ‘no,’ it’s not going to happen, but I will say right now, it’s not front of mind for me,”-Brandi Rhodes.
It seems as if Brandi is turning her attention to other projects rather than the squared circle. She’s keen to support her husband achieve his dream, and wrestling will always run in their family, but mot having to be on the road as much means she can spend more time with her daughter.
