There was huge news coming out of last night’s episode of Dynamite - Cody and Brandi Rhodes are expecting a baby! The reveal of Brandi’s pregnancy made mainstream news. People Magazine was all over it.
But I’m more interested in how the wrestling world is reacting to the news. Here are some reactions from various wrestling personalities, including Dustin Rhodes expressing excitement about being an uncle:
I'm gonna be an uncle!!! Gonna spoil the shit outta him/her. Lots of candy!— Dustin Rhodes (@dustinrhodes) December 17, 2020
Big congratulation to you both @TheBrandiRhodes @CodyRhodes
Love you. #UncleDust

Congratulations @TheBrandiRhodes and @CodyRhodes!!! Thank you so much for making the wonderful announcement tonight on #AEWDynamite that you’re expecting a new baby!— Tony Khan (@TonyKhan) December 17, 2020
Renee Paquette, fresh off her own recent pregnancy announcement, congratulated the happy couple and surmised that their child is destined to look stunningly beautiful:
Congrats!!!!! Now can we discuss how beautiful this baby will be...?! I mean, c’mon! https://t.co/Q8NP6TIwti— Renee Paquette (@ReneePaquette) December 17, 2020
Following up on all the wrestling pregnancies that have occurred in 2020, Paquette also noted that the pro wrestling talent pool is bound to look great in a couple decades:
All I’m saying is in 20 years, the wrestling talent pool gonna be looking good!!— Renee Paquette (@ReneePaquette) December 17, 2020
To which CM Punk decided to mock the idea that pro wrestling is still going to be a thing 20 years from now:
there’s gonna be wrestling in 20 years. pic.twitter.com/xS7u7fqfKL— player/coach (@CMPunk) December 17, 2020
Leave it to Punk to ignore a potential “Cody neck tattoo” joke and instead turn Brandi’s pregnancy into existential commentary on pro wrestling. What a buzzkill!
Paquette responded to the troll:
such a troll!— Renee Paquette (@ReneePaquette) December 17, 2020
I’ll wrap this up with a straightforward congratulations to the Rhodes family on their big news. And let us know in the comments below what baby names would be most appropriate for someone as beautiful as Cody and Brandi’s child is destined to be.
