No matter the name, Brandi Rhodes has always been recognizable. In WWE, Rhodes was known as Eden Stiles, the gorgeous Smackdown ring announcer. As great as she was at announcing the NEW champions, it was Rhodes’ personality that really shined through. The backstage skits with the New Day were memorable, as was her constant “wink-wink” interaction with her husband Cody Rhodes.
When Cody decided to leave WWE, Brandi decided to leave with him. That wasn’t the surprising choice. It was her decision to hang up her ring announcing gown, to put on wrestling gear that shocked us all.
Cody and Brandi joined Impact Wrestling late last year and we were stunned to see Brandi in a wrestling capacity. Brandi showed that she was able to pick up the craft almost seamlessly and immediately became one of our favorite reasons to watch Impact.
To be fair, whether Brandi was great in the ring or not, we would still watch her on Impact. We are less than a week away from Valentines Day and we are strongly hoping Cody Rhodes is away in Japan!
Take a look at the gallery below and we are sure that you will want Brandi as your valentine as well.
