Brandi Rhodes On How Equal Pay For Men And Women Talent Will Work In AEW

Chief Brand Officer Brandi Rhodes held a press conference in which she discussed a number of topics including equal pay for AEW male and female wrestlers.

WrestlingInc was there, and had been the ones to ask about base pay for for incoming talent to AEW.

"Obviously I'm under NDAs so I can't tell you how much people make," said Rhodes. "So, if you're someone coming straight from the indies, maybe you haven't been on television for a while – if you're male or female, you're starting at the same spot.

"If you're someone who has been on tv for a while and maybe you've been a champion at a company… there's a lot of players who look the same whether they're male or female. So, they start at the same spot."

Brandi shared situations from her history in working in the business in which female talent at one level was paid a bit less than male talent at a lower level.

"At places I've worked before, no matter what, you start at this [set level of pay] or this is your weekly or your per show," stated Rhodes. "But then if you talk to a man, the per show is completely different and they may be a man who's never been on tv before.

"I've worked for a company where I had a pay that was okay, but it was way below pays of people who had never been on tv before. I've been in this industry for a long time and worked for some of the top companies, so why is that? So that's something we really didn't want to do. We're achieving that and it's going really good right now. Everybody seems to be really happy so we're gonna keep going."
