All Elite Wrestling’s Brandi Rhodes On AEW’s Immediate Success, Her Goals As A Wrestler & More

Brandi Rhodes has more responsibilities related to All Elite Wrestling than many people may released. Beyond competing as one-half of The Nightmare Sisters beside Allie, she is AEW’s Chief Brand Officer. As if all of that were not enough, Rhodes is also the long-standing host of the AEW-related, cooking-oriented, interview-based YouTube series A Shot Of Brandi.

As embedded below, Brandi Rhodes spoke with me by phone on July 21, 2020 about the following:
– What she does day to day as AEW’s Chief Brand Officer
– Which AEW talent is on her team as Chief Brand Officer
– Her long-term goals for herself and the company
– The importance of being in-shape to her
– Whether she has ever exercised during a conference call
– The work ethic of AEW’s Tony Khan
– Long-term goals for her in-ring performance
– Whether she has a list of talent she wants to wrestle, like husband Cody did
– Why she didn’t attend the second edition of Chris Jericho’s cruise
– Her Detroit roots and whether it is the best music city in the world
– What she learned from recently wrestling Kenzie Paige that surprised her
– What she does in her free time
– What she’s currently watching on TV and reading
