Brandi Rhodes recently spoke with SI.com to promote this Sunday’s TNA Bound for Glory pay-per-view event. During the interview, she was asked about being married to fellow TNA star Cody Rhodes.

“Cody and I had a connection pretty quickly. We were engaged pretty quickly, but my moment where I knew this was definitely the person for me was when Cody asked me on a date to Halloween Horror Night at Universal Studios. Nobody had ever asked me on a date to Halloween Horror Night, and I had never been even though I am a horror fanatic. I go to all the haunted houses that I can get my hands on, and I grew up in Michigan, where there are a lot of back-woodsy haunted attractions. I had wanted to go to Halloween Horror Night for years, but no one was ever interested. That was our second or third date, and that’s the moment I realized that that was the best thing to happen in a while. We made a weekend of it, had the best time ever, and now we go back every year. It’s kind of our place. I think it was pretty mutual that that was our place.”

When asked if she hopes to be in a tag team with Cody or if she wants to be a singles star in TNA, Brandi wants to be a singles star.

“Cody and I—even though we are a real-life couple—are not necessarily a team in wrestling. I would love the opportunity to get in the ring with my husband and mix it up a little bit, but we are both focused a lot on our individual careers and cheering each other on that way, as opposed to being a team. My decision to go to Impact and be a Knockout is a decision I made for myself, and I’m very excited about it. As soon as I walk in the door, I’ll be seeking out the Knockouts title.”

Rhodes also talked about NXT and more. You can read the entire interview here.
