Brandi Rhodes, the wife of wrestling star Cody Rhodes, recently opened up about the emotional journey leading up to Cody headlining WrestleMania 39 during a candid chat with Busted Open Radio at Cody's new documentary on Peacock premiere.
She shared her unique perspective on their growth and the joy she felt seeing Cody succeed despite the match's outcome. Reflecting on their past, Brandi spoke about their challenges before Cody's return to WWE. Their journey had been "sticky and weird," with ups and downs that many couples could relate to.
However, she emphasized that she was delighted to witness Cody's continued success and to be a part of his incredible journey.
Proudly Watching Cody's WrestleMania Triumph
The main event of WrestleMania 39 was a monumental moment for Cody and his fans.
Despite the match's outcome, Brandi expressed immense pride in seeing her husband stand tall in the main event spotlight. Sitting in the front row, witnessing Cody perform on the grandest stage, was a surreal experience she never anticipated.
It was far from anything she had on her "bingo card" for a while, making the occasion all the more special. Despite the disappointment of Cody's loss to Roman Reigns in the WrestleMania main event, Brandi spoke about staying positive and grateful that no one was hurt during the intense matchup.
However, her mother's reaction to the outcome was quite the opposite. Brandi humorously recounted how her mom let loose a flurry of F-bombs and expressed her dissatisfaction passionately. Describing her as a "good Christian woman," Brandi playfully admitted that her mother tended to drop a few expletives and even throw things when emotionally charged.
Although she wasn't present in the box suite during the event, Brandi could only imagine the enthusiasm. The love and support of family are paramount to anyone in the wrestling business, and Brandi's account demonstrated how invested their loved ones can be in their success.
Despite the disappointment of Cody's loss, the family's camaraderie and sense of celebration remained intact. Brandi's appreciation for her husband's journey and the support from their loved ones highlighted the strong bond they share, both personally and professionally.
As Cody continues to leave an indelible mark in the wrestling world, it's evident that Brandi is his steadfast pillar of support. The wrestling community can learn valuable lessons from their inspiring journey, showcasing that true success lies in the outcomes of matches and the strength of the relationships we build.
