"Total Divas": Sneak peek of Season 5!
This season, Brie has a lot of conflict with her sister Nikki as their lives and careers go in different directions. Brie and Nikki don't see eye-to-eye on a huge business venture, and when Nikki gets injured during her final days as Divas Champion, it leaves The Bella Twins’ career in question. Brie has to contemplate her next career and life move, while Nikki wrestles with coming clean to her boyfriend, WWE Superstar John Cena, about the romantic advances made towards her by her ex-boyfriend, Dolph Ziggler. This love triangle puts John and Nikki’s relationship to the test.
Eva Marie continues to thrive with her in-ring training, despite the constant polarization from the other Divas. Paige confesses her true feelings about the quick engagement to her fiancé. Rosa faces the challenge of finding purpose in her professional life while pregnant with her first child. Alicia warily ventures into a new romantic relationship. Natalya continues to work through the trials and tribulations of marriage while grappling with the feeling that the younger Divas’ careers are flourishing more than hers. Mandy comes into the division wide-eyed and eager to fit in, only to find out that in order to make it as a WWE Diva, you need to be much more than just a pretty face to earn the respect of your fellow performers and fans alike.
“Total Divas” is produced by WWE and Bunim-Murray Productions. Gil Goldschein, Jeff Jenkins and Russell Jay are Executive Producers for Bunim-Murray Productions. Kevin Dunn is Executive Producer for WWE.
