Paige as a Rosebud?!?!? It happened — believe it. The Diva of Tomorrow was forced to borrow the outfit off one of Adam Rose’s coterie when The Bellas (having clearly taken their cues from The Dudley Boyz) stole her clothes and hid them in an attempt to embarrass Nikki’s No. 1 contender. The joke ended up being on them, as Paige not only beat an incredulous Summer Rae, but also looked good doing it and got twice as many bragging rights. After all, a PTO is that much more demoralizing when Paige is wearing a Lollipop Guild outfit.
This was not an easy episode. Every so often, “Total Divas” likes to take a break from all the revelry and weddings and arguments about the pronunciation of “barbed wire” to just completely punch its viewers in the gut and, well, this was one of those weeks.

The Bella Twins have begun an on-screen rivalry with a strange behind-the-scenes counterpart to go with it. While the friction from a few episodes ago has largely flamed out, Nikki’s in a mild panic over the fact that Brie is seriously considering having a child with Daniel Bryan in the near future, as such a development would split up The Bellas and dilute their burgeoning brand. Even John Cena balks at Nikki’s aversion to her sister’s potential happiness, though that doesn’t stop her from confronting Brie and Bryan over an otherwise pleasant family dinner. Unable to sway her sister’s opinion, Nikki instead probes into the idea of being able to carry a brand on her own and gets a vote of confidence from WWE execs, ensuring the Bella empire will continue for eons untold, baby or not. Long live The Bellas.
