Total Divas S9 E5 episode recap: The Real Ronda

 
 

Tensions ran high on this episode of Total Divas as newcomer Ronda Rousey insulted every member of the WWE locker room by committing the ultimate sin in wrestling, calling it fake!

Understandably, Rousey angered all of the Divas. This was especially true because Ronda’s anti-wrestling tirades were broadcast all over the internet. I also think that the other women in the locker room felt slighted because they have done everything possible to make sure that Ronda was accepted by fans, and to have her insult them was seen as the ultimate betrayal.

However, Rousey claimed that her rudeness was only used as a means of turning herself into a bad guy. So, Ronda’s husband, Travis, said that she should invite her fellow Divas over to their house for a party in order to get to know the real Ronda. We will have to wait until next week to see how it goes.

Meanwhile, WWE Superstar Carmella was going through some drama of her own. Lately, Carmella has been teaming with WWE Superstar R-Truth to create a comedic act which centers around his winning and losing the 24/7 Championship. Truth is also well known for his rapping, and thought that Carmella should add her own beats to his rap. So, she enlisted the help of her friend Naomi to provide a recording studio for her to record in, and moral support for her while she recorded.

However, it quickly became clear that Naomi was a much more confident performer than Carmella, so Truth asked Naomi if she could perform instead. When Carmella heard this she was upset and stormed out of the studio. Naomi talked her into coming back and she ended up being great.

Meanwhile, Sonya Deville continues to have drama with her girlfriend Arianna. Ever since the two got back together there has been increased pressure on them to move in together. The only problem is that Arianna wants to live in Tampa while Sonya doesn’t want to move. Sonya even looked at homes in Tampa with Arianna and her mom. Sonya was all set to move but a conversation with her friend Liv Morgan had her reconsidering everything. I personally think that Liv should have minded her own business, but I guess the point is moot.

All of this, plus Nia Jax’s knee injury should add spice to next week’s episode of Total Divas.
