Brandi Rhodes is currently the Chief Brand Officer of AEW. Her husband, Cody Rhodes, is an in-ring performer and executive vice president of the same promotion. The couple married in 2013, and in December 2020, Brandi and Cody announced that they are expecting their first child. Due to her pregnancy, Brandi has taken some time away from in-ring action.
Brandi Rhodes was the latest guest on Renee Paquette's Oral Sessions podcast, and they discussed various topics. When it came to Brandi's road to WWE, she revealed that John Laurinaitis reached out to her agent at the time, and she subsequently looked into wrestling. Brandi recalled her reaction after she saw Cody Rhodes on an episode of WWE SmackDown.
"I remember I watched SmackDown that night, and there was a young Cody Rhodes on there with no kneepads, and [laughs] he was dashing. I remember seeing him on that and being like, 'Huh, that guy looks good'."
Brandi Rhodes said her husband was portraying the role of "Dashing" Cody Rhodes when she saw him on SmackDown. Shortly after this episode, Cody donned a clear protective mask over his face and became "Undashing" Cody Rhodes. Brandi also highlighted the fact that they started dating around the time of Cody's "Undashing" phase in WWE.
While both stars were part of WWE at one point in time, they both left the company in May 2016.
