Earlier in the year, there were talks that WWE was going to turn Naomi into a heel so that they can give her some momentum for a push through the divas division. Rumors have now surfaced that those plans were shelved because producers of Total Divas would much rather focus on a story line that shows friction between she and Natalya. The belief is that part of the reason why the tag team titles were switched was to help add drama to this story.

Over the last few days, fans have been speculating that Naomi was no longer going to be a part of the Total Divas cast because she was not around when promotional material was being created. We have now learned that the rumors are indeed true, as the diva herself took to social media to address the issue. She flat out stated that she was no longer a part of the reality television show, and she also revealed that it was not her choice. WWE made the decision.

It appears that Summer Rae and Naomi are going to have a lot more free time on their hands. Rumors have surfaced that the two of them will not be on the cast of Total Divas next season. The speculation was started because neither of them were featured in the commercial that was aired this week. WWE has long wanted to be able to shuffle the cast members, in order to keep things fresh. No word yet on who will be replacing them, but Paige has been a favorite choice.
