Brandi Rhodes is hopeful that the Deadly Draw is something that AEW can do more than once.
Last week on Dynamite, AEW announced a women's tag team tournament titled the Deadly Draw. Aside from the fact that 16 women split into teams of two will enter the tournament, not much else is known about it. Speaking to Christy Olson, Rhodes talked about what to expect from the tournament and said there is a possibility that she and tag partner Allie, (collectively known as the Nightmare Sisters), might not be in the tournament together.
"There is the factor that [the Nightmare Sisters] could maybe not be together in the tournament, since that hasn’t been clear. So we will also see on Wednesday with the rules what that means for the Nightmare Sisters. I’m honestly hoping that we are together, because again, I feel like we’ve just gotten our footing so it would be kind of sad to tear us apart at this point," Rhodes said. "Wednesday that’s all going to be crystal clear. We’re going to explain how the teams come together and then you might see a team or two come together. So it’s going to be a fun episode, definitely wouldn’t miss that if you are interested in the tag team cup tournament. So we’ll leave you in a little bit of suspense."
In regards to the future of the tournament past this year, nothing is set in stone. Rhodes said the company is testing things and see how it goes before it fully commits to any future versions of it.
"I think that’s how you look at a lot of things. You try things, you see how they go. I, of course, am very hopeful that this tournament is something that can continue to happen as it’s going to bring great opportunities to a lot of women who don’t normally get to be seen on Dynamite or on AEW Dark as often as we’d like to," Rhodes said.
