AEW recently released its first line of Unrivaled figures through Jazwares and fans already want more. The figures have been sold out at Wal-Marts across the country and Brandi Rhodes' figure has reportedly been the toughest to come by.
Appearing on the Major Wrestling Figure Podcast, Brandi discussed the idea behind having her own action figure.
"I thought there was definitely a lot of possibilities and cool things that can happen with being a character in wrestling. When I became an on-air personality, I kind of lost that, 'it's not meant for me or it's not going to happen,' but then Renee Young got an action figure. Now, it's a possibility for people who are broadcasters, ring announcers, referees. I think everybody is going to be getting figures," she said.
Matt Cardona followed up by saying AEW should have referee figures as there aren't many in circulation today.
Brandi responded by saying, "We definitely need referee figures. We have some charismatic referees. A lot of people like Ref Aubrey, Bryce, Paul Turner, everybody is their own character in the referee realm. I think we can do it and I feel strongly about it. I can say you can expect to see one or two referee (figures) to pop up."
Series one of AEW Unrivaled features Brandi, Cody, Kenny Omega, Chris Jericho and more. Series two is set to be released later this year.
