During a recent interview with The Wrap, WWE veteran and Total Divas original, Natalya, discussed the rumor of the reality show getting a name change.
Nikki Bella, who serves as a producer on Total Divas and Total Bellas had previously discussed the idea of changing the name due to what the term Diva represents. However, Natalya has mixed views on the idea.
“You know, I’m not sure actually,” when asked about said rumors. “I’ve heard different rumblings. I’ve heard that, you know, Nikki Bella had talked about it openly and said, you know, she wanted to change the name, and that we should go from ‘Divas’ to something else.”
“It’s tough because, the way I look at it is, yes, in WWE we’re not called Divas anymore, we’re called Superstars,” she added. “But ‘Total Divas’ is such a popular show that, would the mainstream audience understand if we changed the name?
“But at the same time, I always think change is good and I think it could be a unique dynamic to take the fans, you know, on a journey where we do change the name. It just depends, the stars have to align. And I also, you know, I think the most important part is keeping the show authentic. Keeping it real and true to what it’s always been, and that really starts with the cast.”
