Brandi Rhodes on why the Nightmare Collective broke up: “I was not happy with it”

We’d reported earlier that AEW seems to have broken up Brandi Rhodes’ Nightmare Collective faction. Rhodes confirmed this on her appearance on Wrestling Observer Live and also revealed the reason behind this decision.

Rhodes revealed that she was originally supposed to manage Awesome Kong and the latter wanted to change up her look and also wanted to cut off her opponents’ hair.

However, Brandi revealed that Kong was not feeling “physically well” and that fans couldn’t “feel” the concept since they didn’t have time to explain it.

The CBO of AEW went on to state that she wasn’t happy with herself being in it and she wasn’t happy with how other people involved in it were being perceived. She also revealed that it was her decision and not AEW’s that this faction got broken up.

Rhodes said that the remaining members of the Nightmare Collective, namely Luther and Mel will still have future programs in AEW and fans will get to see what happens next there. She said that now that she’s out of it, she’s good with it and hopes that the fans are good with it too.

She also revealed that she was encouraged by people within the company to go ahead with the Nightmare Collective but she decided on walking out because she wasn’t “feeling it”.

    She had to, the other week, and was terrible, as I said in my original comment.

  • JustSaying

    That’s not a fact either. She might not be the best wrestler in the world (and she’s said that herself), but she is in fact a trained wrestler. And she could have a basic wrestling match if she has to. Now you or myself on the other hand can’t wrestle.

  • Mike the Ike

    You’re right. Stating facts, on the other hand, like the FACT that Brandi can’t wrestle IS a fact.

  • JustSaying

    I don’t think insulting wrestlers that you aren’t a fan of is considered facts haha.

  • Mike the Ike

    You’re the only troll around here. You’re clearly making comments in order to get a response whereas I am simply stating facts.

  • JustSaying

    I wouldn’t call being an internet troll being further in careers lol. I hope you at least get paid for bashing wrestlers online haha.

  • Mike the Ike

    Let’s see, she was signed by WWE nine years ago, so she’s been wrestling at least that long and is still an embarrassment in the ring. She can’t cut a promo, despite being surrounded by some of the best promo people and having a master’s degree in BROADCAST JOURNALISM. Worked her ass off? How? Modeling isn’t work and anyone can take nude selfies. She wouldn’t even be in the wrestling business if she didn’t happen to sleep with the right guy. I got further in my career in the first three years than she has in the last decade. You ignorant tw*t. You have no idea what you’re even talking about.

  • JustSaying

    “She needs to try harder”. What would you know lol. If you listened to the full interview where this article is coming from, you’d learn that she’s way further in life than you because she worked her ass off. She’s also still learning the ropes. You’re not even in the business. You’re in the business of judging what wrestlers in the industry do and leaving hateful comments. How’s that going for your career so far lol.

  • Mike the Ike

    Seems like you’re the troll. I have a problem with her contributions, or the lack thereof, and therefore, voice them. She’s trying to do her job? She needs to try harder.

  • JustSaying

    I’m just having fun with you. Why are so mad at everybody. It’s just wrestling. It’s not that serious. These people are just trying to do their jobs and internet trolls like you always have to find a reason to attack them.

  • Mike the Ike

    What a surprise, you’re wrong. I don’t bash women a lot, I bash ANYONE who deserves it. Want to hear me go off on meth hardy? What about create a wrestler Excalibur? I got a whole list of people I don’t like.

  • JustSaying

    You have zero value either. You seem to bash women a lot. Did someone break your heart tubby?

  • Mike the Ike

    Maybe they could have gotten Tampax to sponsor their “Yetay.”

  • Sparti Love

    Should have called it ‘The Dungeon of Poon’

  • Mike the Ike

    She can’t wrestle, she can’t talk, and she’s doing nothing noteworthy as far as branding the company. And you’re correct, the concept wasn’t THAT awful, except that during their recruitment drive, they already had the Dark Order, which was a cult, and the Inner Circle, both of which were doing recruitment storylines. It as redundant and the only people who joined up were people that no one had ever heard of before nor cared about.

  • Rinn13

    The concept wasn’t THAT awful. And there’s no need to sh*t on her as a person

  • Mike the Ike

    Way to try to save face after people have been crapping on it since day one, you idiot. You have no value, Brandi, neither in the ring, nor as a mouthpiece, nor as the “chief branding officer”.
