All Elite Wrestling will be crowning their ever Women’s Champion on October 2nd and there might be a chance of seeing Nyla Rose win the title. It is an interesting fact that Cody and Brandy Rhodes did not realize Rose was transgender when they first saw her.
Brandi Rhodes spoke to Collider, where she revealed that she did not know Nyla Rose’s backstory. She was simply impressed by what Rose had to offer. She is dominant in the ring and her being transgender did not matter as Brandi saw her as one of the best female competitors.
“I don’t know if we’ve told the real story with Nyla Rose. I’m cool telling the real story if it’s not out there. When we hired Nyla Rose, we did not know she was transgender. We thought she was one of the best wrestlers we ever saw. That was that. It later was revealed to us that she was transgender and that’s great.”
Brandi was unaware of Nyla Rose being transgender until she did a more thorough search online.
“Via the internet. I was getting floods of tweets from people of the LGTBQ community just saying ‘thank you, thank you.’ And I’m saying, ‘For what?’ and then I found that out. She opened up to me and talked about it, and it was fantastic. However, it’s nothing to do with anything because she’s just a fantastic competitor. She was brought on board — I think Kenny Omega was the one who found her and says, ‘hey, take a look at her.’ None of us knew. Nobody knew.”
We will get to know on October 2nd who will come out on top and become the inaugural AEW Women’s Champion.
