SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
Prior to returning to WWE, the Bella Twins were slotted for a reality show on E!, which turned into “Total Divas.”
Now, the Bellas are getting their own mini-series spinning off from WWE’s reality series.
The Bellas, John Cena, and Daniel Bryan are starring in the six-episode series airing this fall, the network announced. The working title is “Total Bellas.”
The focus will be on Nikki Bella’s neck injury, Brie Bella’s decision to retire, Daniel Bryan’s retirement, and John Cena’s injury recovery. Plus, John Laurinaitis is part of the show after marrying the Bellas’s mom.
Included is a new living arrangement trying to handle the various health issues. This of course leads to tension between the principal married couple Bryan & Brie and dating couple Cena & Nikki because of their completely different lifestyles.
The Bellas will still part of Season 6 of “Total Divas,” which is also scheduled to air this fall. E! and WWE are trying to re-do the cast after TV viewership fall hard in the current season.
Season 5 has only averaged 742,500 viewers, down 36 percent from 1.011 million viewers in Season 4.
