The Total Divas SummerSlam two-parter carries on as Maryse’s “Sex and the City” theme party approaches. Nia Jax, emboldened by The Bella Twins after a brief crisis of confidence, decides to invite her firefighter paramour from last episode to the shindig, to resounding success. She and the guy hit it off, the girls have a great time, and an impromptu fashion show that Nia organizes wows the guests. It’s not until the next day that the ladies decide to Google the guy and see what comes up. The results are surprising, to say the least, and it’s decided that Nia will not be contacting this gentleman again.
SummerSlam Week rolls on in New York City, and Nikki Bella has a full docket of appearances, despite not competing on the show. Brie Bella, on the other hand, is just tagging along with Birdie Joe and has no official role in the festivities. This apparent snub both bums her out and makes her even more despondent that WWE hasn’t asked her about a comeback yet, and Nikki has to remind Brie that she needs to be proactive and not just wait to be approached. Brie decides to speak with the higher-ups at SummerSlam, and despite a brief hiccup (Nikki gets the time of the show wrong, so they arrive late and miss most of John Cena’s match), they’re entirely receptive to the idea of Brie Mode’s return, even throwing out the idea of a stint from Royal Rumble to WrestleMania.
