AJ Lee
There are reports floating around right now that the reason why AJ Lee was not chosen to be a cast member on Total Divas is because she is married to CM Punk. However, she has repeatedly stated in the past that she was not interested in doing a reality television show. She enjoys her privacy and prefers to focus on being a wrestler. Management recently added Alicia Fox and Paige to the series.
October 21, 2014
Cameron
Since Nikki Bella and Cameron have confirmed it publicly, the widespread belief among fans is that the cast member of Total Divas are not allowed to hold a championship in WWE. Stephanie McMahon, however, is disputing that rumor. During a recent interview, she flat out denied it when asked about the rumor. McMahon stated that it would be great for one of the cast members to hold the belt because it would drive more attention to the story.
October 21, 2014
Alicia Fox
The expanding cast of Total Divas will include Alicia Fox next season. WWE has decided to include as many of their female performers as possible on the show, and Alicia was quite willing to sign up for the reality television show. For a lot of the girls, the hope is that the extra exposure will help them build up their name value for when they eventually leave the company and pursue other things.
October 20, 2014
Paige
In an attempt to draw in even more viewers, the producers of Total Divas and WWE have decided to add new faces to the show. Paige was chosen to be one of the two cast additions. She is young, has a different look, is from England and has already been the Divas champion. Speculations are that the show will portray her as the new girl being given preferential treatment from management.
October 20, 2014
Michael Hayes
Reports have surfaced about a rather interesting real life relationship backstage in WWE. Rosa Mendes was said to have been dating Michael Hayes for a period of time. Former wrestlers have alluded to the seemingly inappropriate relationship in the past, but the names were withheld. Word going around is that Hayes was quite the advocate in getting Rosa on Total Divas. The two are said to be broken up now.
October 9, 2014
Vince McMahon
Vince McMahon reportedly has a rule about the cast of Total Divas. None of them are allowed to hold the championship while they are a part of that reality show. No word yet on why McMahon has that rule in place right now, but it is quite peculiar since WWE basically scripts a lot of their segments based on what is happening on Total Divas.
September 25, 2014
Rosa Mendes
Despite not being a major topic of conversation among the internet wrestling community, the season premier of Total Divas did really well this week. They managed to draw in over a million viewers. If the show can manage to maintain that type of number, then there's a very good chance that the relationship between WWE and E! will continue. Rosa Mendes was added to the cast this year, so a new diva could be added if another season were to follow.
September 9, 2014
Brie Bella
During a media interview to promote Total Divas, Brie Bella revealed that Daniel Bryan would not be needing the second surgery that has long been rumored to repair his neck injury. She stated that her husband was gaining the strength back in his right arm and could be back as soon as three months, which would enable WWE to have him make a surprise return at Royal Rumble 2015.
September 7, 2014
Natalya Neidhart
WWE wanted to create a buzz for Rosa Mendes and the upcoming season of Total Divas, and it looks like the company has accomplished that. Fans are talking about the preview clip where Rosa is naked on one of the episodes. She is in a hotel room, and Natalya Neidhart walks in on her. Obviously, the network won't be showing her fully nude, but it's enough to pique interest in the show.
September 5, 2014
Naomi Knight
Not a whole lot of fans are aware of this, but Naomi Knight has been missing in action for WWE for a couple of weeks now. The Total Divas star has now revealed that she has been on the sidelines because she needed minor surgery to help further repair her injured eye. Naomi last worked a tag team match on an episode of Monday Night Raw at the end of July.
August 30, 2014
Rosa Mendes
There are speculations right now that Rosa Mendes could be on the receiving end of a push from WWE. She recently stated in an interview that she has never won a singles match via pin fall on television before. The belief is that she is planting the seeds for an underdog story line. Rosa chasing the championship could be a focal point on Total Divas.
August 23, 2014
Brie Bella
At Summerslam 2014, fans witnessed the beginning of the feud between Nikki Bella and Brie Bella when the former turned on her sister and helped Stephanie McMahon win the match. The belief is that the feud was instigated by the producers of Total Divas. They wanted an intriguing story for the upcoming season of the show.
August 21, 2014
Eva Marie
The camera crew for Total Divas was on hand this weekend to film the bridal shower for Eva Marie. Initially, some were under the belief that it was the actual wedding. However, it has now been confirmed that the official ceremony will be taking place later on this week. Footage from that event will more than likely be included in the upcoming season.
August 17, 2014
AJ Lee
Rumors are going around that Ashley Flair has moved to the front of the line for a promotion from developmental to the main roster in WWE. There are some roadblocks in her way, though. Total Divas is set to become a major focus again very soon, so the writers will put an emphasis on them when writing Monday Night Raw. Flair might also have to wait a bit longer if Paige picks up more momentum in her feud with AJ Lee.
August 12, 2014
Cameron
It looks like WWE will be utilizing the relationship between Cameron and her boyfriend a bit more during the next season of Total Divas. The belief is that something drastic will happen, where the couple will either break up or do a wedding. The heel turn and split from Naomi Knight was designed to put more attention into her character on the reality television show next season.
July 28, 2014
Brie Bella
One of the ideas being floated around backstage in WWE is to turn Nikki Bella into a heel. The story would be that Stephanie McMahon finally gets to her by getting Nikki to believe that Brie Bella has left her hanging. Nikki would grow tired of being abused by the Authority, so she ends up doing a heel turn against her sister. The story would more than likely be featured on Total Divas as well.
July 22, 2014
Cameron
TMZ has quite the fascination with WWE nowadays. The tabloid website recently reported that Nikki Bella, who recently received her real estate license, was spotted showing homes to Cameron and her boyfriend. The couple is getting pretty serious and is wanting to move in together. Cameron, who is one of the stars of Total Divas, stated that she wants a five bedroom place.
July 21, 2014
AJ Lee
Since management did not want to have two divas matches on WWE Battleground 2014, the decision was made to have the match between Cameron and Naomi Knight take place on the kickoff show instead. The segment was needed for the upcoming season of Total Divas. Otherwise, the story would have been placed on the back burner once AJ Lee decided to make her return to WWE.
July 15, 2014
Cameron
The big brawl between Naomi Knight and Cameron that you witnessed on Monday Night Raw this week was indeed the big breakup that has been teased over the last couple of weeks by WWE. As many already know, this story was set up for the sake of Total Divas, as producers wanted more dramatic stories for the reality television show. Since it is involved with another network, the belief is that WWE will get behind the story and put some emphasis on it.
July 9, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
While a lot of fans are hoping to see WWE giving Dolph Ziggler a push again, the on screen relationship between he and Summer Rae is more about the diva than the former world heavyweight champion. Management needed someone to pair her up with, so that she can continue her feud against Fandango and Layla El. WWE still wants to give her a nice push heading into the next season of Total Divas.
July 6, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
As many of you already know by now, Jeff Jarrett shocked the wrestling world when he showed up in New Japan and joined the Bullet Club.

Karl Anderson
"I love this business! You got to be willing to make a 16 hour drive one way to South Dakota to work in front of eight Indians for $50. Of course, I wouldn't do that now, not even for $1000, but that's the proper way to come up in wrestling. Got to love this shit, man." - Karl Anderson explaining the wrestling business
March 6, 2014
