Not only is AEW Star “The Bad Boy” Joey Janela leaving social media, so is AEW Chief Brand Officer and top Women’s Star Brandi Rhodes. Rhodes has deleted her Twitter account, but an official statement or comment has yet to be made.
A number of people on Twitter are saying that she deleted her account because of criticism she got from the announcement of AEW Heels as well as the current state of the AEW Women’s Division.
An announcement was recently made that the company will be launching a brand-new platform, which is called AEW Heels, and it is a platform made especially for AEW’s female wrestling fans and will be headed by Brandi Rhodes. The first AEW Heels event is today, August 7th.

It’s disappointing people bullied Brandi Rhodes to the point she felt it was best to leave Twitter.— Kenton (@Kenton_la) August 7, 2020
People have been toxic and hateful to her on social media for years unfortunately.
Brandi Rhodes talks about her heels website, and how it isn’t only for women, and then a day later deactivates her Twitter account.— Ricardo Vargashausen (@TheRichieVargas) August 7, 2020
I think the reason for the backlash is that people had to pay 50 bucks a year to do it that’s very steep for people who may not have a job right now— Jason Herra (@Jherra77) August 7, 2020
Brandi Rhodes (while her comments weren’t understandable) decided as a AEW executive decided to engage with wrestling Twitter. Big mistake! Again her comments were all over the place and as a executive it wasn’t a good look for the aspect of @AEWrestling that’s struggling!!! ????— Shawn (@OldmanMoultrie) August 7, 2020
