SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
WWE ring announcer Eden Stiles (Brandi Rhodes) announced Tuesday night that she is leaving WWE.
Brandi, the wife of departed WWE star Cody Rhodes, announced that she parted ways with WWE after Tuesday night’s Smackdown TV taping.
“What I’ve been teasing for weeks: I’ve been offered a new opportunity outside of WWE!! So I’ve decided to part w/ WWE after tonight,” she tweeted.
“BeingBrandiRunnels.com will continue! Check it out soon for updates on my new career life! Doing things my way! #RhodesStrong.”
WWE followed by confirming her departure on their website: “WWE has granted Eden (wife of Cody Rhodes) her request to be released, as of today, May 24, 2016. WWE wishes Eden the best in all her future endeavors.”
Cody Rhodes announced his departure from WWE on Saturday, which was made official on Sunday. A few days later, Brandi announced her exit.
Goldust (Dustin Rhodes) is now the last Rhodes Family member in WWE. This comes less than two months after a Dusty Rhodes Statue Presentation at WrestleMania Axxess honoring Dusty’s work for WWE and more-recently NXT.
Goldust addressed his status on Twitter, saying he is not planning on leaving WWE.
Earlier on Tuesday, WWE released a new vintage Dusty Rhodes t-shirt honoring his “American Dream” moniker.
