Season 6 – Episode 16 : Total Summerslam
May 10, 2017
The Superstars take New York by storm during Summerslam week; Nicole comes to terms with not being able to make the comeback of her dreams; Summer Slam gets thrown into disarray when Eva becomes suspended days before the event.
Nikki Bella’s comeback gets a twist on this week’s Total Divas when the former Divas Champion receives an offer to compete on “Dancing With the Stars” while she’s in the midst of her training. The Fearless One instantly sees major potential in spreading her return over multiple brands and reaching as many viewers as possible, but she’s hesitant to commit as she’d likely be unable to both wrestle and dance at the same time. After John Cena — no stranger to reality TV — basically confirms that it’s one or the other, Nikki ultimately turns “Dancing With the Stars” down and decides to focus on getting back to the ring.
During their wedding, Rusev pushes Lana outside of her comfort zone; Nicole gets an offer to go on ”Dancing With the Stars” and wonders if she should quit WWE; Eva Marie pushes a healthier lifestyle on her sick father.
On this episode of E!’s Total Divas, Brie Bella is still not pregnant, and she suspects, after a visit to a holistic acupuncture therapist, that an iron deficiency from her all-vegetarian diet is the culprit. Nikki is completely convinced this is the case, both as an avowed carnivore and the clinically-proven smarter of the Bellas, and for the rest of the episode she sets about attempting to convince Brie to eat meat again. Brie is sorely tempted — she even FaceTimes former vegetarian/former Total Diva Rosa Mendes, who switched her diet and got pregnant shortly thereafter, for advice. It turns out to be something even more left-field than a vegetarian diet that’s giving Brie trouble: She’s doing so much cryotherapy that it’s messing with her body. Another mystery solved.
Daniel Bryan is up and running as the GM of SmackDown LIVE, and Brie Bella has been keeping him company on the road. Which isn’t exactly a problem, per se, so much as it is mildly uncomfortable for her given that she’s retired. It becomes an issue quickly enough, though, when Brie misses out on a crucial conference call with Nikki because she can’t get wifi at the hotel. Nikki tells Brie like it is and suggests she is once again putting her own projects at risk for the sake of making Bryan comfortable, which is especially insane since she’s no longer with the company. As angry as Brie gets, she acquiesces that Nikki has a point, and The Beard doesn’t put up a fuss when Brie asks if she can stop traveling so as to better focus on her other endeavors.
While the Total Divas prepare for the outcome of the WWE Draft, Nikki Bella is still in the first stages of her comeback and finds herself in the unique position of having an unwilling training partner. While Nikki is trying to go full-tilt into it and test her injured neck right away, Natalya more or less refuses to practice any maneuvers that would put The Fearless One at risk. Nikki gives an ultimatum — get with the program or I’ll find someone else — that almost sends Nattie running, but Brie Bella explains that Nikki essentially needs unwavering support if she’s going to complete this comeback. It all leads to a meeting at one of the first post-Draft SmackDown LIVEs, where Nattie and Nikki clear the air and the latter redoubles her efforts to get back in the ring.
