Brandi Rhodes Challenges Serena Deeb

AEW’s Chief Brand Officer, Brandi Rhodes, has sent a challenge to NWA World Women’s Champion, Serena Deeb to meet her in the middle of the ring.

In a recent interview with Bleacher Report, the Nightmare Family member spoke about her wrestling training, her extended family and Serena Deeb who she wants to square off against sooner rather than later:

“I would love to wrestle Serena [Deeb]. I think she is amazing. Training with her here and there, she is somebody you pick things up from without knowing you’re doing it. She’s very fluid in the ring, and I think we could have a really nice match.”

Though a bout between the pair, potentially over the NWA World Women’s Championship, may be a while away, Brandi’s aspirations in professional wrestling are clearly to hone her skills any and every chance she gets.

Next on the agenda was the nature of training she’s been receiving from AEW and in particular her brother-in-law, Dustin Rhodes. With The Nightmare Family a tight knit group, it appears to be a case of keeping it in the family:

“My training has been sporadic over the last five years. Over that time span, the most committed is QT Marshall. His school is here in Atlanta, and he would help me and train me. I’m actually getting ready to head to QT’s school right now and train with the guys.

Every week, Dustin [Rhodes] holds a class. I’m there every single time. Jerry Lynn has been amazing when it comes to the matches. After I have a match, I always go to Jerry because he is not going to blow any smoke up my behind. We’re all still growing. I watch Cody go to Jerry [Lynn] or Arn [Anderson] after a match, and he is one of the best wrestlers in the world, so if he is doing that, we should all be doing that.”

Determined to become one of the main staples of AEW’s women’s division, Brandi will continue to improve her skills inside the squared circle wherever she can. Recently, she has been a part of The Nightmare Sisters on AEW Dark with Allie – a partnership that ended when the latter re-joined The Butcher and The Blade in Eddie Kingston’s stable.
