Who is/are the main character(s) on Total Divas? By the end of this week's episode, I noticed once again that Eva Marie was not featured. I'm not saying this is a good or bad thing, just stating the facts. It was also obvious that Naomi, Natalya, and The Bella's were the ones involved in the major stories this week, while Paige made a couple appearances. Then I concluded that The Bella Twins have surely been featured in every single episode of Total Divas. I can't say that with absolute certainty, but I don't remember an episode where neither Nikki nor Brie were featured. There's your warm up topic for the week...
Naomi Can't Handle Being Heel
This week's show started off with Mark Carrano informing Naomi that she will be turning heel for the first time in her career during a Raw TV taping in London. As we saw, Paige eliminated Naomi to win a number one contender's battle royal. After the match, Naomi attacked Paige out of anger because of the loss.
It was mentioned several times that Naomi needed some time to get comfortable in the role and express her new heel persona when in the ring and on the mic. Her husband Jimmy Uso tries to help Naomi with bringing out the heel side at home, but that doesn't work. Later on, we see Naomi, Jimmy, Paige, Alicia Fox, Tamina, JoJo, Rosa Mendes, and some other people out at a bar. They all toast to Naomi's heel turn. The group begins discussing how to help Naomi bring out the bad side when Alicia Fox randomly throws her drink in Naomi's face! And boy was she livid!
Naomi was thrown out of the bar, but Jimmy was able to help cool her down. I wasn't a fan of Fox being Fox, but it was cool to see Naomi get feisty. It's safe to say Naomi has found a way to channel that anger in the ring as she looks like a B-O-S-S, (sorry Sasha Banks.) Which character do I prefer? I think Naomi is a lovely babyface, however, she has come closer to winning the Divas Championship as a heel.
Natalya Can't Handle Telling The Truth
Natalya had a big problem with lying this week. Nattie and TJ are moving to their dream home, and Nattie's sister Jenni is coming to live with them. TJ is told that Jenni is just staying for four days. While they are packing things and moving, Jim Neidhart drops a lion head on purpose which was a gift from Nattie's mother. What Nattie's mom was told is that it was an accident. Nattie and TJ's old house needs some repairs that will cost around $12-15,000. Natalya tells TJ the costs will be around $4,000...
I'll admit, this made for a good storyline. It was something new we haven't seen before, as far as I can remember. This was another life lesson for Nattie to learn; always tell the truth! This made me think Nattie and TJ have only been together for less than year, not thirteen.
Nikki Can't Handle Brie Being Calm
This episode starts towards the end of the UK Tour that was highlighted last week. Brie learns that Daniel Bryan was hurt and told to go home for the rest of the tour. Nikki is shocked and speculation begins that Bryan's career may be over once again. While Nikki asks Brie a million questions about Bryan, Brie is calm and not showing any worry on the matter. Even Bryan didn't seem that concerned about it. Bryan and The Bella's later had a discussion about Nikki being too worried and over reacting.
The Bella's weren't the "headliners" of this week's show, which is always nice. This storyline was a nice addition to the episode and we saw a little insider peak at Bryan's latest injury. The Bella Twins once again proved that Nikki is the dramatic one while Brie is usually the calm one.
Next week's episode of Total Divas will feature Eva Marie training hard in the ring again and making an appearance at NXT. Eva seems to be friends with Cameron, but she always has someone trying to drag her down like Alicia Fox. The Bella Twins discuss starting their own empire of some sorts, but it can the sisters do it without arguing?
That will do it for this week's Total Drama. What did you think of the show? Do you like Naomi as a heel or babyface? I'd love to hear from you below in the comments area!
