The focus on Total Divas was originally supposed to be on Nikki Bella and Brie Bella feuding on the show. That’s why the had them break up a few months ago on WWE TV. Basically the idea was supposed to be for Brie to go to John Cena and say to him that he’s cheating her sister by not marrying her and then Cena is supposed to break up with Nikki for her own good. Then Nikki finds out it’s Brie’s fault and that is what starts the feud on Total Divas between the sisters. However, very quickly in the season they decide to have both Bella Twins and Cameron feud with Paige, Rosa Mendes, and Alicia Fox with Natalya caught in the middle.
So in order to to do that feud it forced them to have Nikki and Brie reconcile. That’s also why they reconciled on WWE TV. Ratings have been down on average for the show so they’re hoping that the new Divas and more lesbian storyline teases will help the ratings.
