The news about Cody Rhodes leaving AEW is a big story and some say that his defection to WWE is a big blow for the company but many in AEW are reportedly celebrating Brandi Rhodes’ departure.
In a post on the Wrestling Observer forum, Bryan Alvarez said he heard from people in AEW this week and there were a lot more people celebrating Brandi’s exit from the company.
Alvarez said, “There are not a lot of people who are universally hated. Yes, some people have spoken up in support of Brandi. But I can tell you 100% that I have heard way more people celebrating her departure in the last few days than upset about it. ”
This backs up what Wade Keller said on a recent audio show at PWTorchVIP.com. Keller said, “So I’ll just say this. It sounds mean but nobody has anything nice to say about Brandi Rhodes and her disposition or popularity behind the scenes and I’m not saying that with any personal satisfaction or preference for her to be liked or not liked. I’m just telling you when I talk to people, Brandi has not been seen as an asset on camera, in the ring, or behind the scenes. And so that ended up being baggage with Cody because people like Cody, pretty universally like Cody. Even people who say bad things about Cody like Cody if that makes sense. ”
A few people in AEW have expressed support for Brandi on social media but most people have remained quiet about the reports that Brandi was not well-liked behind the scenes.
