Brandi Rhodes was asked over Twitter if she was the reason why Kylie Rae left AEW immediately after signing with the company.
No. If that were true “literally everyone” would be saying it in public.

There was speculation that Rae had to retire from wrestling and that’s why she left AEW, but she’s been working indie promotions since leaving. This reply from Brandi Rhodes is the first official comment from anyone besides Rae and Tony Khan on the situation.
According to Fightful, they’ve spoken to around 2-dozen wrestlers about it, but they couldn’t get a confirmed story from anyone. Khan described her release as “amicable.”
