With her husband Cody Rhodes walking away from the WWE last year, Brandi Rhodes has been by his side ever since and often appears for Ring of Honor, among other companies.
After giving wrestling a go, Brandi turned to ring announcing for WWE before opting to leave the company as well. According to Brandi, Cody never questioned her desire to wrestle and encouraged her to do so. In an interview with ROH, Brandi opened up about her wrestling career.
"His reaction was, 'I think you should absolutely go for it if this is what you want to do.' He said I just need to put 100 percent into it because wrestling is one of those things that you can't do 50 percent. He's very much been focused on making sure I put forth the same effort I did at the beginning all the way through, making sure there's no point at which I get lazy or overconfident or don't want to go in and train. I doubt that will ever happen with me because I've always been a student of whatever sport I'm in, but it's nice to have him there to keep me fully focused."
After leaving WWE, Brandi returned to working in the ring. Since then, she's wrestled for ROH, WCPW, WrestleCircus, Impact Wrestling, WrestlePro and others.
