USA Network will air the premiere of Total Divas after RAW on July 28th. (diva-dirt.com) This will be the day after it premieres on E!

Now no one has an excuse not to watch it!

I, uh, may recap it. May. We'll see...

I have begged both Lise and Kim (who are the only women I know, apparently) to watch and recap this show, but at this stage I'm not even sure I've gotten either to commit to just WATCH, let alone say two words about it.

(Note to self: upload "Total Divas" icon soon)

I don't see any Canadian broadcasters.

Which would maybe be a bad thing.

Maria Kanellis did a lot of Bellas bashing on Twitter during RAW tonight, then explained why. Huh.




See, now I'd watch a show about THIS.

But... we're going to get to see the intimate side of John Cena. Is that enough to sell the ladies?

Just seeing the reactions on this thread, I'm thinking a show aimed primarily towards the WWE female demographic maybe shouldn't be recapped and discussed by the male portion of Weinerboard.

I'm not even sure that women want to see this show, as exhibited by CRZ's fruitless endeavors.

My guess is that if this show gets any significant following it will mostly be from reality TV fans who are not generally wrestling fans. Which is a decent strategy on WWE's part, though if it is successful it may just lead to more TV time for stuff that longtime wrestling fans are not particularly interested in seeing.

If I were to recap Total Divas, I would do it in the same general vein I recapped NXT3, unless the content of the show pulls me in another direction creatively.

I wish Cole and Josh would do commentary over Total Divas.

Press Release! I guess what's really "interesting" about this show is how it pulls back the curtain on who's dating who backstage.

E! AND WWE(R) TAKE VIEWERS INTO THE WORLD OF THE POP CULTURE PHENOMENON WITH "TOTAL DIVAS" PREMIERING SUNDAY, JULY 28 AT 10PM ET/PT

For the First Time Ever, WWE Favorites - The Bella Twins, Natalya, Cameron, Naomi, And Two Divas-In-Training - Bring The Fun, The Sexy And The Drama In And Out Of The Ring With This New Eight-Episode Docu-Series

WWE Superstars John Cena(R), Daniel Bryan(R), Jimmy Uso(R), Tyson Kidd(R), Fandango(R), The Great Khali(R), Hornswoggle(R) And More To Appear In The Series' Debut Season

Los Angeles, CA - July 11, 2013 -WWE and E!, two pop culture giants, partner to bring viewers the first-ever look into the world of the WWE Divas in the all new docu-series, "Total Divas." Cameras will follow the lives of five Divas - both in and out of the ring - giving a first-hand look at the electric personalities, compelling personal lives and incomparable in-ring performances that have helped make WWE the most successful organization in sports entertainment history.

With the triumphant return of fan favorites, The Bella Twins, Nikki and Brie, after a year-long break, the two sisters are met with an explosive mix of energy from two gorgeous, polar opposite newbies who enter the rigorous WWE training program for a chance to call themselves Divas. The series opens with an unprecedented look inside the most-anticipated WWE event of the year, WrestleMania(R), marking the first time that any television series was granted exclusive behind-the-scenes access to WWE. Produced by WWE and Bunim-Murray Productions, a Banijay company, "Total Divas" will highlight the glamorous, chaotic and often dramatic lives of the WWE Divas when the series premieres Sunday, July 28 at 10pm ET/PT following a new episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," only on E!

Meet the Divas:

Nikki Bella (Stephanie Garcia Colace) of the tag team "The Bella Twins"

A self-admitted "tomboy" with a feminine side, Nikki originally planned to play professional soccer until a leg injury ended her career. From there, she followed her twin sister Brie to the WWE. Nikki is idolized by fans and newbie Divas-in-training alike, but, the rivalries and competition runs thick within WWE - especially between the Bellas and their tag team nemeses "The Funkadactyls." Outside the ring, Nikki has been sustaining a secret, steady relationship with one of the biggest names in WWE history. For the first time, the couple will open up about their personal lives together when "Total Divas" premieres July 28th.

Brie Bella (Brianna Garcia Colace) of the tag-team "The Bella Twins"

The other half of the dazzling and devious Bella Twins, Brie debuted on SmackDown in 2008. Alongside her sister Nikki, the half-Italian, half-Mexican beauties have quickly become two of the most popular Divas in history, each with their own solo reign as WWE Women's Champion. Outside of the ring, Brie has found love in the arms of one of WWE's biggest names, Daniel Bryan.

Naomi (Trinity McCray) of the tag-team "The Funkadactyls"

The leggy beauty first turned heads as a dancer for the NBA's Orlando Magic and on concert tours for hip-hop stars like Flo-Rida. These talents took Trinity around the world performing in sold out arenas. However, none of these venues could compare to stepping foot in the ring after appearing on as a contestant on WWE NXT, a competition series searching for the next big name in the WWE. There, Trinity showed something special and made her WWE debut as Naomi accompanying Superstar Brodus Clay(R) to the ring while dancing with fellow Diva Cameron. The two ladies commanded the attention of the fans with their athleticism and dance skills, thus forming "The Funkadactyls," a sexy tag-team that rivals "The Bella Twins." Out of the ring, Trinity recently went public with her relationship to WWE Superstar Jimmy Uso.

Cameron (Ariane Andrew) of the tag-team "The Funkadactyls"

As one of the feistiest Divas in the biz, Cameron joins Naomi as a duo on the path to the top of Diva Queen-dom. This caused plenty of tension and drama with "those Bella twins," as she calls them, and outside of the ring, tensions continue to grow as Ariane is looking to be the top Diva in the WWE. In addition to balancing the grueling work and training schedule, Ariane is in a relationship with a man not in the WWE world - which presents a lot of obstacles of its own. As Ariane is learning, not every Diva can have it all.

Natalya (Natalie Neidhart)

Stepping into the ring was in Natalie's blood as the daughter of the legendary Jim "The Anvil(R)" Neidhart and the niece of Bret "Hit Man(R)" Hart and Bruce Hart. Along with her cousin David Hart Smith, Natalya, as she is known in the ring, continues to make the family proud as a third-generation Superstar. In the ring, Natalya is joined by her cousin David and her fiancée "Tyson Kidd(R)," forming The Hart Dynasty. Out of the ring, Natalie has claimed the heart of "Tyson Kidd," and the couple's road to the altar will be documented in "Total Divas," including the bachelorette party, finding the perfect dress and of course the wedding ceremony.

Eva Marie (Natalie Nelson) and JoJo Offerman (Joseanne Offerman) - Divas-in-Training

Eva Marie is a rebellious spitfire and immediately ruffles the feathers with the established Divas. The budding bombshell also makes her presence known to the male Superstars when she flirts relentlessly with fan favorite Fandago. Polar opposite is sweet and shy JoJo Offerman who comes in a tiny package but has booming and harmonic voice which just adds another layer to her talents. The ladies are eager to step foot in the ring, even as they hear about potential injuries and surgeries (maybe even ones that are cosmetic) that take some Divas out of commission. The competition is stiff and as these two newbies will learn over the course of the season, only the strong survive in the world of Divas.

Don't miss the match-up between the Bellas and Naomi/Cameron (aka The Funkadactyls) as they bring the drama from the very start when "Total Divas" premieres Sunday, July 28th at 10pm ET/PT on E!

Total Divas is produced by WWE and Bunim-Murray Productions. Jon Murray, Gil Goldshein, Jeff Jenkins and Russell Jay are Executive Producers for Bunim-Murray Productions.

Did that PR just turn Fandango face?

Naomi's real name is *Trinity*? That's a way better wrestling name!

I hope on all their wedding invites, etc., it said "Tyson Kidd(R)."

How long has it been since DH Smith was let go? (consults Internet) Geez, almost TWO years! Including him in the press release was questionable (unless he's prominently on the show, which seems ... awkward?)

"Full Bodied Italian" Trinity (Stephanie Finochio) actually made it to ECW for a cup of coffee, so I can see why they wouldn't user the name on another woman.

No mention of DWIs in the press release... who'da thunk it ;-)

I promise, I'll watch it at least once, & say at least 2 words. I have a feeling that the words may resemble "blurgh" & "gak", but we'll see. (From the promo, watching the Bellas winge about "Don't you ever worry that John may not ever want to marry you?" kinds of crap, I'm not exactly rife with great expectations.)

p.s. I couldn't even make it through that press release without "blurgh" & "gak" ... Jus' sayin'.

I think he injured a muscle in his leg/groin a while back. I remember reading reports that he might be back sometime after Wrestlemania. Could be back anytime now, I suppose. Ah, here it is: http://www.lordsofpain.net/ news/2004/articles/1078249335.php
