Both Brandi and Cody Rhodes got together in 2011 and married each other in 2013. Then, in 2021, they were fortunate enough to become parents. Typically, this situation would put Brandi’s career in jeopardy if she wanted to be a full-time mother. However, in an interview when the former WWE employee was pregnant with Liberty Iris Runnels, she claimed that she was not retiring so soon and would return to work after getting stable following the delivery. Even though she worked while in AEW with her husband, she didn’t continue it after The American Nightmare jumped ship to WWE last year.

Brandi revealed in a recent interview with Ring The Belle, “The travel schedule [at AEW] is completely different than WWE, where you work Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. At AEW, you work Wednesday and then you work from home the rest of the week. So that’s absolutely achievable for a mom to work full time.” This highlighted the difference between WWE’s demanding schedule and AEW’s more flexible work environment.

However, when she revealed this about herself earlier, people on the internet didn’t appreciate it.

In turn, people targeted her for promoting stereotypes about working mothers. Brandi Rhodes shed light on the comments and addressed them by saying, “Why people got so upset about that, I really don’t know. It’s their problem, not mine.

On the contrary, Rhodes actually admires mothers who are doing both jobs, taking care of their careers while still being present for their children. One of them is none other than Becky Lynch.
