On December 16, Brandi Rhodes announced she and Cody were expecting their first child together during an episode of AEW Dynamite.
Brandi had been involved in multiple storylines when the announcement was made, including one that seemed to be setting up a match with her and Cody taking on Shaquille O'Neal and Jade Cargill.
Speaking to Renee Paquette on Oral Sessions, Brandi revealed that she has no plans to appear on AEW television while pregnant.
"It's a wrestling show, so who wants to see a pregnant lady? There have been times when people have asked, 'Do you want to be on commentary or be part of this?' I wouldn't want to see me on commentary because I'm not going to do anything. You know I'm not going to do anything. Someone can be in my face and there's nothing I can do about it. It's anti-climatic. I say no sometimes and then I get shoehorned into doing something. I'm trying to stay out of it," she said. "We were building to a match. I just had the singles match with Anna Jay and everyone said, 'That was a really great match! We thought they were gonna suck!' Yeah, we don't suck guys, we work really hard. We were supposed to have a tag match with me and Red Velvet against Tay [Conti] and Anna. We were looking forward to it and were excited. We were going to plan aspects of that match and I was meeting Ricky [Starks] at the Nightmare Factory and it was that morning I found out I was pregnant. My doctor even said, 'You should finish what you're doing. It's not going to hurt you.' I was so minuscule pregnant that two doctors said it was fine. I could never live with it if something happened. I started acted like my knee was hurting."
Elsewhere during the interview, Brandi discussed her promo against Jade Cargill and how she wasn't supposed to do the promo that night. You can find her full comments by clicking here.
