    A NAOMI SPIN OFF SHOW WOULD BE EVERYTHING. Naomi is easily my favorite part of Total Divas.

  • Gabriella Panajotova

    I still don’t think she’s getting a spin off. Maybe it was the TD crew.

    • Wicked Emma

      Why you don’t think that Naomi is getting her in spin-off?
      The Bella’s have their own spinoff show. Why can’t Naomi?

      • Gabriella Panajotova

        So because Bellas got one Naomi has got to have gotten one too? That’s a stupid reason.

        I think it was just the TD crew.

        • Wicked Emma

          No it isn’t. The Bella’s got their own spinoff show. I didn’t see you complain.
          If this is true and Naomi is getting her own spinoff show.
          You think It’s not a good idea.

        • Wicked Emma

          Naomi is on TD.

  • Bow Down To The Queen

    I highly doubt she’s getting a spin off and omg Alexa is so pretty in that shoot

  • Radic

    They have nothing for Summer to do? They have 5 women in the MitB ladder match and not 6? Hmmmmmmm.

    Again. HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!

    It doesn’t take a bad creative direction to know that putting Summer on SmackDown and in that match would make things more interesting.

  • OMG! I missed women’s photoshots and all of them look fantastic, specially Emma.
    The new women ref look’s good.
    Poor Summer but WWE ls too dumb, they can easily reform “BFF’s” with Emma and Dana, finally giving the title she deserves.
    Hope that Lana participate on that match.

    It doesn’t take a bad creative direction to know that putting Summer on SmackDown and in that match would make things more interesting for their division. I know they have the whole ‘Welcoming Committee’ which is going SUPER I know (sarcasm) and adding Summer can ruin things, but maybe this is what’s needed.

    Ruining one thing (Welcoming Committee) to bring up something better (Summer on SmackDown, one extra women on their roster, and a potential top star in their division if they give her the chance she deserves)

  • Wicked Emma

    I hope Naomi get her own spinoff show. I would like to see Lana in the MITB match.

  • trishlita721

    Not that we need anymore nxt rehashes but summer could be seen backstage influencing sasha against Bayley and eventually joining an alliance. I’ll be so mad if they make her aksana version 2 again.

  • Super Mateo

    “Summer Rae is ready to return, WWE just doesn’t have any creative plans for her right now.” A good creative team can take any character and be able to come up with storylines for him or her. This, however, is not a good creative team we’re talking about here.

    Come on. Even I have an idea right now: have Summer work with Sasha, trying to corrupt her and bring her to the dark side. It can have one of two results: Sasha resists and ends up fighting Summer or Sasha caves and goes heel. There, Raw “Creative” team. There you go.
