Brandi Rhodes, the Chief Brand Officer for All Elite Wrestling (AEW), recently appeared as a guest on Vickie Guerrero's "Excuse Me!" podcast to talk about the first-annual AEW Women's World Cup Tag-Team Tournament "The Deadly Draw", women's wrestling legend Madusa appearing in AEW and more.

Featured below are some of the highlights of Vickie Guerrero's new interview with AEW CBO Brandi Rhodes.

On the response thus far to the first-annual women's tag-team tournament in All Elite Wrestling:

"It’s been an amazing response from the fans. People are reaching out left and right saying how successful it’s been. The views on YouTube are continuing to climb. It is a testament to the women at AEW that we deserve to be put in the spotlight for sure. Would that be the case without me? No because nobody else did this. No one else said, 'Hey, we need to push these girls into their own little spotlight, their own tournament. We need to let them just go and have as much time as they need to shine.' I was the one to do that. As the chief brand officer, I do charitable work all the time, so it’s nothing for me to get these women on television and help them grow their brands."

On Madusa’s appearance on week one of AEW Women's World Cup: The Deadly Draw Tag-Team Tournament:

"She is quite the legend. She looks amazing. She doesn’t change. She is always stunning. Her voice is spectacular. She’s on point. She looks great and I love Madusa. I think it’s good for our women’s division to have legendary women around like Madusa and like yourself, Vickie. It only elevates these girls to become more and to strive for bigger and better things."
