As we all await the next season of hit reality TV show WWE Total Divas, rumors are starting to hit the dirt sheets about which WWE Superstars (they no longer the titular “divas”) we could see on the show.
As Bleeding Cool has reported on extensively, Eva Marie appears to have moved on from WWE, taking a role in a Nicholas Cage movie and promoting her own projects after being suspended for violating WWE’s wellness policy last year. And Paige, despite being the subject of a movie about her life co-produced by WWE and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, is also on the outs with the company, after failing two “wellness” tests and globetrotting with her fiancee, former WWE Superstar Alberto Del Rio, while making periscope videos wherein Del Rio viciously insults WWE and its executives.
What we’re saying is, those two probably won’t be back for the next season, especially as it’s set to start filming in a few weeks. So who will WWE get to replace them?
According to a report from Pro Wrestling Sheet, current RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss is in line for a spot, as well as Nia Jax. The dirt sheet says no final decision has been made, but those two are in the top running.
Of course, before we ever see the next season of Total Divas, we have the next season of spinoff show Total Bellas to look forward to this fall. That season is rumored to see Nikki Bella and John Cena move into Brie Bella and Daniel Bryan’s house to help Brie with her pregnancy, a reversal of the scenario from the first season. Bella and Bryan’s child, Birdie Joe Danielson, was born earlier this year, and the birth is expected to be the driving plotline of the show this season.
