E! has issued an official press release for Total Divas season two, revealing two interesting bits of information.
Firstly, it announces the season two premiere date, setting it for March 16th at 9pm ET.
This moves the show from its usual 10pm ET time slot, a definite show of confidence in its ability to garner ratings.
Secondly: read into it what you will, the press release claims that the second season will feature a Divas Title match at WrestleMania.
The line reads:
The season culminates with Brie Bella’s marriage to WWE Superstar, Daniel Bryan and the women compete for a top spot, and the Divas Title, at WrestleMania.”
Of course, this could be an assumption on E!’s part, but we saw the show affect last year’s WrestleMania in a pretty significant way. Maybe instead of a match being pulled for the sake of Total Divas drama, we’ll see one booked for it?

Los Angeles, CA, January 29, 2014 – E!, WWE ® and Bunim-Murray Productions continue their unprecedented look inside the sports entertainment giant when season two of “Total Divas” premieres Sunday, March 16 at 9pm ET/PT leading into an all-new episode of “#RichKids of Beverly Hills.” Cameras will once again showcase the professional and personal lives of WWE Divas, Nikki and Brie Bella (WWE Divas “The Bella Twins™”), Nattie (WWE Diva “Natalya™”), Trinity (WWE Diva “Naomi™”), Ariane (WWE Diva “Cameron™”) and WWE’s newest Diva, Eva Marie™. In addition, blonde beauty WWE Diva Summer Rae™ joins the cast and gives viewers insight into her personal struggles as she makes her way to a coveted top spot in the Divas hierarchy. Between balancing a personal life, fighting for the spotlight, and maintaining romantic relationships, the Divas are up against the odds. However, their unique lifestyles bring them together in a bond of sisterhood like no other. Join the fun, fascinating and glamorous lives of E!’s “Total Divas” when the series returns with 10 all-new, hour-long episodes beginning Sunday, March 16 at 9pm ET/PT.
As one of E!’s newest hit series, “Total Divas” averaged 836,000 viewers ages 18-49 and 1.3 million total viewers, making it E!’s most-watched freshman series since 2011. “Total Divas” was E!’s second-strongest original series of 2013 in the 18-49 demo after “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and ranked as cable’s #1 reality series in its Sunday 10-11pm timeslot this fall with viewers 18-34 and women 18-34.
In the new season of “Total Divas,” the personal drama outside the ring continues as Nikki Bella’s break from boyfriend WWE Superstar John Cena® overshadows her twin sister Brie’s wedding planning. Nikki will have to decide if she wants to stay with John despite his refusal to get remarried or have children. Nikki and Brie aren’t the only Divas with marriage on their minds as Eva Marie must hide the fact that she has secretly married her boyfriend, Jonathan, unbeknownst to her family who are coming to her home for a visit. Wedding bells are also in the air for WWE Superstar John Uso® and Trinity, although they face opposition from Uso’s father, who would rather see him with a Samoan wife. Meanwhile, Nattie seeks advice from the ever vivacious Ariane on how to spice up her newlywed life.
It’s no secret that summer is everyone’s favorite season so it should come as no surprise that “Total Divas’” newest starlet, Summer Rae, shined as brightly as her namesake when she made her WWE debut in April 2013 as the escort of sexy, fan-favorite WWE Superstar Fandango®. The New York born and North Carolina raised spunky blue-eyed vixen has quickly captivated the attention of the massive WWE Universe and is on a steady rise towards the top of the Divas Division. Outside of the ring, the former All-Star cornerback and team captain of the Lingerie Football League’s, Chicago Bliss, is a college graduate with a passion for dance and the Chicago Bears. The single lady is focused on her career, but even with her whirlwind introduction to the limelight, there may be one WWE Superstar that has caught her eye.
Throughout the season, the women continue to climb the ranks in WWE with Eva Marie becoming a fierce competitor and fan favorite, Nikki reestablishing herself after her nearly career ending injury and Brie and Trinity positioning themselves as possible Divas Champion contenders. Nattie, however, isn’t thrilled when Summer Rae infringes on her fan base and screen time. The two women go head-to-head in the ring and behind the scenes as tensions rise. The season culminates with Brie Bella’s marriage to WWE Superstar, Daniel Bryan® and the women compete for a top spot, and the Diva’s Title, at WrestleMania.
“Total Divas” is produced by WWE and Bunim-Murray Productions. Jon Murray, Gil Goldshein, Jeff Jenkins and Russell Jay are Executive Producers for Bunim-Murray Productions.
