Brandi Rhodes Discusses Wearing Polka Dots in ROH

Posted By James Walsh on 08/06/17


Brandi Rhodes posted to her official website discussing her paying tribute to Dusty Rhodes in her Ring of Honor debut. Rhodes wore a black ring outfit with yellow polka dots in honor of her late father-in-law.

“I have never ever received so much positive energy towards anything I’ve ever worn in my entire life,” Rhodes wrote. “Fashion is a passion of mine, for sure. But the dots make people feel good. They make people remember. They start conversations and encourage fans to tell me their favorite Dusty stories and moments. It’s really surreal and it helps people come together and enjoy themselves that much more.”
Rhodes also notes that her attire isn’t a reference to Dusty’s valet during his polka dots phase, Sapphire.

“Just because I’m black, doesn’t make me in polka dots a Sapphire reference,” she added. “She was amazing and I enjoyed her and Dusty immensely. But Cody and I are never trying to be this. Cody is Dusty’s son and I never had the pleasure of meeting sweet Sapphire. I would consider it disrespectful to her family to try and “represent” her. That’s their right and their lineage, certainly not mine.
