Brandi Rhodes has got ...to... go

Concerned with the victory she attained over Allie, the air time she’s getting in general.

She’s absolutely awful, always has been, wouldn’t be on the level of Carmella in WWE. AEW must ensure they steer away from nepotism because we’ve now got Goldust in the main event and Brandi the feature women of their roster when originally she wasn’t expected to wrestle.

So yes, concerns..thoughts?

Re: Brandi Rhodes has got ...to... go

not sure why people are surprised when this sort of thing happens, nepotism runs rife in wrestling (and most businesses tbh)

Re: Brandi Rhodes has got ...to... go

It's soured me on their women's division. They haven't even established their own women yet and they're already having a non-wrestler go over their talent. It didn't get heat and I'm not going to excuse it just because I want AEW to succeed. Bad optics, bad execution, bad reaction and bad performer.

Re: Brandi Rhodes has got ...to... go

What it pissed me off afterwards (and I didn't even noticed up until Meltzer pointed out in his podcast) is the complete incosistency in her character. She had a babyface video package, then she played the heel in the match and then, when the show was over, she forgot she was a heel and came out with the check for the victims of gun violence, playing babyface all over again because she wanted to be in the picture. That is some Stephanie levels bullshit right there.

Re: Brandi Rhodes has got ...to... go

I think as on-screen character and as a valet she's fine, pretty good actually but she shouldn't be competing/winning untill she imrpoves.

I'm not sure why Goldust has been used as an example, though. He is perfect for his role and the brother vs brother match was the best match in AEW and probably of the year.

Yes, agree with you. She’s actually winning and she should never win.

Now we’ve got Spears...Cody’s old buddy come into a marquee position when it’s just out of place and odd. Dudes a charisma vacuum.

Even Jericho/Page and Omega/Moxley feel less featured to this Cody, Goldust, Spears, Brandi bullshit that’s really getting under my skin.

May kill the company before it starts.

As long as she doesnt get anywhere near the title or to the top level competitor I dont give a shit since i just skip her stuffs. Against allie its crisp but still not a sacrilege but if she starts pinning people like riho and Shida then fuck her.
I am getting a very pricky childish vibe from her. Someone who tries to hang where she cant just to prove herself a point, the difference is she is a garbage wrestler and no one is interested in her. She is the only down on their women division which so far has done a remarkable job. She sucks she is bad she wont get better and no one wants to see her wrestle, it's simple its fucking simple!
She is gonna get rejected heavily if she tries pushing it further and she is gonna hit the go away heat brutally and my gut tells me she is the kind of person who doesnt have the courage to handle this and start bitching about it
As for dustin Rhodes I fundamentally disagree with you in term of storyline and wrestling he doesnt look 1 cm out of place, he is some old school fresh air and so far he always delivers big time.
Shawn spears is more than fine so far and his stuff is interesting. Let's not also go to the other extreme and start seeing nepotism everywhere, I dont give a shit if they are his relatives , if they do the work and get me invested I am all in. The rest doesnt interest me.

She gets a pretty good reaction from the crowd from what I’ve seen. Maybe this leads to Awesome Kong burying her down the line.

You’re only as good as your last match and the tag team at fight for the fallen was average at best, he’s also goldust...ain’t Chris Jericho or Jon Moxley, having him main event an AEW show won’t reclaim WCW fans, he’s old and never been featured this much in his career. I liked his position in the Double Or Nothing card, don’t need him main eventing

Re: Brandi Rhodes has got ...to... go

I didn't see the match. In the build up to the show they ran highlights of her training. I could tell just by looking at that, any match she was in wouldn't be the greatest. I skipped right over that shit.

That's why I mainly will either just watch highlights or a replay of shows. That way I can skip anything I'm not interested in.

I can't remember who I was listening to but they made a statement that may give aew a stigma if they're not careful.

The guy said "they promised us an alternative to wwe's terrible comedy, only to give us their own version of terrible comedy" in reference to the librarian gimmick.

I said all that to say that people are going to start to feel lied to and resentful if they shit on wwe in one segment only to turn around and copy some of their shitty business practices. Nepotism in this case..
