Brandi Rhodes Talks Wanting AEW Women's Tag Team Division, Riho Winning Women's Championship

Although AEW had just begun, Brandi Rhodes hopes to continue to expand on it, perhaps create a women's tag team division.

During New York Comic Con, where AEW was present, Rhodes spoke with a number of reporters and talked about her expectations for the women's division. Although AEW began with a world championship, a women's title and tag team titles, Rhodes believes a women's tag team division is coming but doesn't want to necessarily rush into it.

"You never want to rush into things because you put unnecessary pressure on competitors that don't need to be there. Each championship is unfolding as we go. Pretty confident that [AEW President] Tony Khan is on record saying he would want a women's tag division. I want a women's tag division," Rhodes said.

As for the existing women's division in AEW, the company's first champion was crowned on the first episode of AEW Dynamite when Riho defeated Nyla Rose. Rhodes spoke about Riho's victory, calling it inspirational.

"It was inspirational to see. It also gives me so much hope.... People will continue to be hooked because it was hard not to be connected to something on that show. I loved what I saw from her the other night. I felt the wave of emotion, her fight. I wanted her to win by the end," Rhodes said.
