“Breaking all the Rules” Airing 11/15 – Trinity goes behind WWE’s back and alters her championship in order to give it a glow, meanwhile Lana pulls a similar stunt by posting a photo that could get her fired. Brie recruits Nicole to go on a road trip to San Diego with a breastfeeding infant in the car, and Carmella & Cass visit Los Angeles and live a day in the life of Maryse and The Miz.
“The Diva Divide” Airing 11/22 – A fight breaks out between Lana, Nattie and Nia when their critique of each other’s wrestling skills becomes too personal. A 3rd home robbery pushes Maryse to want to relocate immediately, but Mike refuses to move. Meanwhile, Brie begins donating her breast milk to babies in need, but struggles to keep up with the demand.
“The Bella Rush” – Airing 11/29 – Lana hosts a Name’s Day party for Rusev in Nashville but isn’t ready to give him what he really wants as a present. Nattie buys her parents a house, but soon realizes they are the
tenants from hell. Meanwhile, the Bellas miss the adrenaline rush of wrestling and try to find a fix to replace it.
With Brie Bella and Daniel Bryan desperately in need of a night to themselves on E!’s Total Divas, Brie recruits an odd couple of Superstars to babysit: Naomi and Natalya. The pairing ends up being a bit of a mixed bag, as Naomi — who is openly planning on having a child someday — is a natural with Birdie Joe, while Natalya doesn’t seem to know what to do, preferring to play with the dogs. As it turns out, Natalya is somewhat terrified of caring for a baby, which is pretty distressing considering she’s one of the more maternal women in the locker room. After she breaks down slightly before their second babysitting stint, Brie decides to stay in with her friends, catch up and order a pizza.
Lana’s big singles debut has finally come, and … it doesn’t seem like anybody has a lot of confidence that she can pull it off. Amid a flood of social media naysayers, Nia Jax gently, if indelicately, reminds Lana that with her managerial skills, she doesn’t really need to wrestle to achieve success in WWE. But in the afterglow of Carmella’s historic Money in the Bank win, The Ravishing Russian wants in on the action and will not be stopped. That is, until after her second match, when she’s pulled aside and informed that WWE has decided to pump the breaks on making her an in-ring performer. Lana is heartbroken, but Nikki Bella, who’s been giving her advice all episode, reassures her in a FaceTime call that she wouldn’t have gotten a second match if she hadn’t earned it and encourages her to keep her confidence going.
We’re back with Total Divas Season 7, so let’s pick up right where Total Bellas left off: The birth of Birdie Joe Danielson. A few months have passed, and Daniel Bryan is comfortably playing house while he’s off on paternity leave, though he and Brie Bella are both dreading the call that will send him back to work as the General Manager of SmackDown LIVE. And even though Nikki Bella doesn’t seem to be heading back to the ring anytime soon, she and Bryan come up with an idea for her to be his proxy on television, getting Nikki back in the game as the Women’s division starts to get new opportunities and giving Bryan more time at home with his family. The idea, alas, is shot down, and Bryan is told to report back to Team Blue.
Elsewhere on Team Blue, Lana is finally transitioning to an in-ring competitor, with her first singles match slated to be a title bout against Naomi for the SmackDown Women’s Championship. She’s changed her diet and is upping her training regimen, but Rusev remains skeptical because he’s worried his wife, with her combination of million-miles-an-hour effort and minimal in-ring experience, is going to hurt herself while attempting to put on a good performance. At a pre-Money in the Bank pool party hosted by Nikki Bella, however, Rusev is convinced to step back and be supportive.
