LOS ANGELES, CA – JULY 26, 2018- E! and WWE(R)’s “Total Divas(R)” returns for its eighth season beginning Wednesday, September 19 at 9 pm ET/PT. Brie Bella(R), Nikki Bella(R), Naomi (Trinity), Natalya (Nattie), Lana, Nia Jax and Paige will be part of a season that promises career highs and personal lows, buoyed by life-long friendships that help them weather the storm.
She’s baaack! The one and only Paige returns to season eight. After a career-threatening injury, Paige is figuring out the next step in her career, but in the meantime, WWE may have something in store for her. On a personal front, Paige looks to The Bella Twins to help her move beyond her past mistakes and build back her confidence.
The season kicks off with the girls getting ready for WrestleMania(R) Week in New Orleans. All eyes are on Nia Jax as she continues to impress in the ring. With her much-anticipated Raw(R) Women’s Championship match, Nia tries to up her game and enlists the help of a veteran Superstar to pick up some new moves.
With Nikki’s personal life front and center, she is learning to deal with a new kind of spotlight. Hoping to set the record straight between gossip column fodder and what she knows as the truth, Nikki holds her head high and puts her best foot forward at a time when changes are happening in her personal life. Having the girls around her for support encourages Nikki to challenge herself and the crew to dig deep and face their emotional fears on what is supposed to be a fun girls trip to Lake Tahoe.
Now that Brie’s husband Daniel Bryan(R) is making a comeback, she wants to prove she’s not going to slow down. While being a mom and juggling a flourishing business with her sister has been great, Brie feels like she may be missing out on bonding with the ladies.
Natalya begins to explore what her back-up plan would be after watching Paige re-evaluate her career. As she looks ahead to her future, Natalya is also facing her family’s history of Alzheimer’s disease and is presented with an opportunity to get tested for the gene.
Naomi has long wanted to move out of Pensacola, Florida and while on a girls trip to Atlanta, explores the idea of buying property with or without her husband WWE Superstar Jimmy Uso(R) (Jon). When a symbol of their love and devotion goes missing, Naomi’s carelessness causes a rift between them that money can’t buy.
Lana’s husband WWE Superstar Rusev(R) has baby fever and hopes that Lana can take a cue from Brie and Bryan so they can start a family of their own. Meanwhile, Lana continues to push herself physically and mentally in the ring. And, after a lifetime of constant forgetfulness, Lana is finally ready to confront the issue head on.
