Now that Allie has returned to The Butcher and The Blade, Brandi Rhodes is now in need of a tag team partner. Brandi and Allie made it all the way to the finals of The Deadly Draw women’s tag team tournament over the Summer. The team came up short of winning the gold medals against Ivelisse and Diamante.
Brandi may have found a new tag team partner in Red Velvet. They will team together for the first time this coming Tuesday night on AEW Dark.
Brandi first took a shine to Red Velvet during a single match against one another when she thought Red Velvet resembled the Lil Bran Bran action figure. A few weeks later, Brandi made the save when Anna Jay attacked Red Velvet. The favor was returned the following week. That led to Brandi scouting Red Velvet and dubbing her Lil Cupcake after red velvet cupcakes. So you can see this paring has been building for a while.
If Brandi and Red Velvet find success, there are a few directions they could go to extend the lifespan of their partnership without AEW having a true women’s tag team division.
Brandi’s primary enemy at the moment is Anna Jay. A team with Jay and Dark Order recruit Tay Conti would make sense. Jay joining forces with Allie could also fit the bill. Allie could find a new partner to prove she was the driving force of the Nightmare Sisters.
Brandi and Red Velvet could also go to the top and prove themselves against Ivelisse and Diamante. There are interesting angles to had here. And if Red Velvet acquits herself well, then perhaps she can join the ranks of the recently expanded Nightmare Family.
