In a recent interview with Scott Fishman of TV Insider, All Elite Wrestling’s Chief Brand Officer and talent Brandi Rhodes discussed several topics, including why she deactivated her Twitter account and the decision for the AEW Women’s Tag Team Cup Tournament airing on YouTube.

On her decision to deactivate her Twitter account: “I just think that right now, there are other things that need my attention a lot more. I’m focusing on Heels, which Friday, we had our first members based event. It was extremely successful, it’s nice to come together in a community of women that really appreciated it and enjoyed it. We had a really great time on Friday night, it was nice to put my energy into that. My energy is also going into the Women’s Tag Team Cup Tournament, it has been a really nice weekend to put all my time and energy into what I want to be focusing on right now.”

On the AEW Women’s Tag Team Cup Tournament airing on YouTube: “With YouTube, it’s its own show, that means we are trusted enough to carry our own show and don’t have to be compared to men. We were also not restricted on time, so it’s really the dream scenario, better than finding our when we are live and something went long, you may only have four minutes to put it out there. That’s really hard, especially when you are trying to introduce new women and put that kind of pressure on them. Being it’s our own show without the restraints and to be able to tell these stories how we want to is a really great situation.”

On fans wanting more women’s wrestling weekly as part of AEW Dynamite: “It’s an interesting question, because I don’t feel it really applies to me, considering it’s not something week-to-week I discuss or plan. I took this tournament on as a side project. Of course, in doing the tournament, I know what the criticisms have been, I know what they are and thought this would be really great for that, especially those who are die-hard women’s wrestling fans. As far as the week-to-week goes, unfortunately, that’s a burden that lies elsewhere. Thankfully, it’s not one I have to navigate so frequently.”
