On Saturday evening in the opening match at AEW Revolution, Dustin Rhodes was defeated by fellow former WWE star Jake Hager. However, it seems like this may have been one of Rhodes’ last singles matches in AEW for the foreseeable future.
Speaking to the media after the show, Dustin revealed that he and QT Marshall will become a team and will be entering the tag team division in AEW.
Dustin not only revealed that he will be teaming with Marshall moving forward, but also confirmed that his sister-in-law Brandi Rhodes will be the new team’s manager:
“I’m a little bit upset right now, not gonna lie about it. Disappointed in myself. I’ve had a hell of a year, hell of a pay-per-view with Cody [Double or Nothing], come back and just a little a disappointed in myself. I think it may be time for me to maybe reach out and take a partner for a little while. QT Marshall has been there for the Nightmare Family for quite some time and I want to give him a chance, so you’re gonna be seeing a lot of us together. It’s gonna help my body tremendously, and QT is the right man. He’s tough, he’s been in the business a long time and I think he deserves a shot. And of course, we have a secret weapon. That secret weapon is Brandi [Rhodes]. Brandi will also be there, as our manager, and help us on the path to tag team gold hopefully. We’re trying to call ourselves the Natural Nightmares maybe, sounds pretty good right?”
Brandi was formerly part of the Nightmare Collective, but AEW, to their credit, decided to scrap the faction after it really struggled to get over with the fans.
