Brandi Rhodes has now addressed her WWE future, commenting on the possibility of a return to the company following a previous Performance Center visit.
When Brandi and her husband Cody Rhodes left AEW in February 2022, many fans predicted that the duo would end up in WWE together.
While Cody made his WWE return that April, Brandi hasn’t appeared on WWE TV, outside of sitting in the crowd for Cody’s big matches.
There was a lot of speculation about Brandi’s in-ring comeback in August 2022, following reports that she returned to the ring at an ‘in-house live event’ at the WWE Performance Center.
Speaking with Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful, Brandi Rhodes confirmed that she did a ‘little trial’ with WWE, but ultimately decided that she didn’t want to balance being on the road with raising her daughter Liberty.
Explaining her decision to no longer pursue a full-time wrestling career, Brandi said:
“So yeah, we did a little trial to say, you know, how does this whole thing work with a baby and a bus and traveling, and Becky Lynch can do it.
“Well, let me just say, Guys, Becky Lynch can do anything. Brandi, however, kind of kind of threw in the towel after that. It was really fun.
“It was really great, but I could tell pretty quickly, it wasn’t going to work for this family to travel together and be on the road.
“I’ve got a little girl who’s extremely social and active and like was itching to start doing school and things like that. I was just like, ‘You know what? I was planning on throwing in the towel like a year from now anyway. So what’s one year, really?'”
When asked if she feels she could eventually get the itch to make an in-ring return, Brandi Rhodes said:
“No, not in that capacity. I mean, of course, you know, I always joke and play around on social and stuff, saying things like, you know, ‘If Cody ever really needs me, I’ll be there,’ and that’s really just in that capacity. I mean, if Hunter (Triple H) ever needs Steph (Stephanie McMahon), I’m sure she’ll show up, but is she gonna go for the Women’s Title? Probably not.”
Brandi Rhodes recently revealed that she plans to open a yoga and pilates studio this Fall, which you can read more about right here.
