As noted last week, Summer Rae and Naomi are off the new season of Total Divas that starts on January 4th. It appears that the show has jumped the shark since ratings are down and they’re doing things in this season that appear to be out of desparation to get the ratings back up. As noted on Saturday, there’s an episode featuring Paige and Natalya at a party where Natalya eats a brownie. Paige tells her that they’re drug brownies. Obviously that goes against the WWE’s wellness policy. Natalya spits the brownie out though.
Alicia Fox will be pushed on the show as the first African-American to win a Divas title. Cameron and Alicia Fox will have a feud. Also they are doing a worked separation with Natalya and Tyson Kidd and there will be a tease of a lesbian angle on the show.
