The Bella Twins No Longer Part Of ‘Total Divas’, Big Name To Replace ThemFebruary 13, 2019
Lana is nor returning to “Total Divas” for Season 9 and it looks like The Bella Twins are not either.
We learned either this week that Lana and Rusev would not be returning to “Total Divas” for the next season. It was revealed Tuesday night Sonya Deville was being added to the cast and it looks like even more shakeups are happening as well.
According to Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet, he is reporting that both Nikki and Brie Bella will not be part of the next season of Total Divas. Satin states that the two informed E! Network executives at the conclusion of season 8 filming that they did not want to return to the show so the can focus and put more effort into their spin-off “Total Bellas.”
ASs far as who could fill the void left behind by Nikki and Brie, Squared Circle Sirens is reporting that producers have gotten Ronda Rousey to join the show for Season 9.
It looks now the cast going forward will be Ronda Rousey, Sonya Deville, Natalya, Nia Jax, and Naomi. Nikki Bella will still be involved with the show as an Executive Producer despite no longer being a cast member. With that lineup, it looks like Paige will not be returning to the show as well for the next season.
