Entrance Theme: “You Give Love a Bad Name” by Bon Jovie
#SHOT THROUGH THA' HEART AND YOU'RE TO BLAME!!!!
#DARLIN' YOU GIVE LOVE... A BAD NAME!!!
Bon Jovi's classic "You give Love a Bad Name" assaults the P/A system as the video package plays out, centered around a brushed metal star with cybernetic orange/red wings and the word REBEL blazing across them. Through the curtains steps "The Rebel" Melinda Rhodes with short and spiked blond hair, tight black leather tights with red and silver strips that spell Rebel on her thighs, heavy knee pads, laced boots with red, white, and black tassels, road gloves, crop top, a red leather vest with that winged Rebel Star logo on the back, a chain choker around her neck, blood red lipstick, and deep black eye shadow. In her hand is her favorite bright red aluminum baseball bat, which she twirls around as her head bobs to the beat.
She then rushes down to ringside, leaps over the apron and under the ropes, popping up to slide on her knees to the center. She hops to her feet, raising the baseball bat in the air and then, with a wicked grin, she points it in the general direction of her opponent, be they in her ring or still waiting in the back.

Biography: Some would consider Melinda Rhodes a polarizing figure in the sport. There has been more than the lion’s share of controversy thrown her way for certain. Despite her issues and problems, she’s managed to be a fairly successful owner of a clothing brand called, “Rebel Star Gear,” a modest chain of Tattoo parlors called “Rebellion Inkorporated” and her most recent endeavor sees her running her own wrestling promotion, “Southern Rebellion Wrestling.”
Despite the troubles of her past constantly creeping up to haunt her present, the Rebel perseveres and keeps trying to make a lasting legacy in the world of professional wrestling that isn’t just a string of bad choices, missed opportunities, and psychological damage. She was something once to the world, but that was almost a decade ago. Melinda Rhodes doesn’t want to die an ordinary woman, but someone remembered and revered. That is her goal in wrestling. Will she ever manage it? At the age of 38, her window of opportunity grows ever shorter, but she will make the best of her final days as an active wrestler and manager.
