Summer Rae & Layla def. Natalya & Rosa Mendes
While the ongoing conflict between “Total Divas” Summer Rae and Natalya continued to make itself known in SmackDown Divas tag team action, it was Summer’s partner Layla who ultimately overcame Rosa, pinning her with a little help from the tights.
JBL is forced to go on a “Road Trip of Enlightenment” to become a better person.
You see the Divas every week, but you’ve never seen them from these angles. WWE.com presents a never-before-seen look at sports-entertainment’s leading ladies in this exclusive gallery taken straight from the cutting room floor.
Natalya def. Summer Rae
Some grudges are just too personal to be settled in roadside brawls. Natalya and Summer mixed it up on a deserted country road on last night’s “Total Divas,” but The Queen of Harts got the last laugh over her leggy opponent (at least for the time being) in a one-on-one match on Raw. Summer actually played Natalya’s game for the duration of the match, wrapping up the former Divas Champion in a surprising array of submission holds. Happily, Natalya didn’t spend all her aggression in that backwoods scuffle, and she came back to blast Summer in the face with a running dropkick, sealing the contest by reversing a roll-up into the Sharpshooter.
Summer Rae makes her grand return on E!’s “Total Divas” this week, and the newly minted star of “The Marine 4: Moving Target” wastes about five seconds before she picks up on her rivalry with Natalya from last season. The snits fly back-and-forth from the get-go, but Rosa Mendes, who wants everyone to be friends, still thinks there’s hope for reconciliation. What she gets instead is an awkward car ride with the battling blondes that escalates just short of a roadside brawl when the insults get too personal. Rosa is able to calm her traveling partners long enough to finish the drive, but Natalya wastes no time the next day in warning Rosa of Summer’s company.
Eva Marie and Jonathan’s Catholic conversion saga reaches its surprisingly tame ending after a supremely uncomfortable Fourth of July family gathering leads to Eva and Jonathan’s final discussion on the matter. No, Jonathan will not convert, despite Eva’s desire to please her father. Eva, who has always thrown her lot in with her family over her husband, breaks the news to her father and he concedes that while a Catholic wedding is important to him, it’s more imperative that Eva and her husband start their lives together on the same page. Blessing (no pun) secured. Whew.
On the “Braniel” front, Brie Bella and Daniel Bryan decide to explore backup career plans in the event that their time with WWE is ever cut short. A recruiter is less than impressed with the transcendence of the “Yes!” Movement, but the couple seems to find their answer in the form of a bed and breakfast for sale in Arizona. The asking price is a little steep, so Brie takes it upon herself to pursue a loan from Nikki and John Cena … without telling Bryan. Not only is the request swiftly denied, but Brie also finds herself briefly on the outs with Bryan for not discussing it with him, as well as Nikki for some subsequent, passive-aggressive remarks about refusing to help her sister in her hour of need. And the march toward SummerSlam continues.
Tune in to “Total Divas” Sunday nights at 9/8 CT on E!.
Summer appeared on this week’s episode of WWE Countdown and discussed the greatest high flyers of wrestling including Rey Mysterio and Lita.
These ‘Total Divas’ are not messing around! On the upcoming Sept. 21 episode, Nattie and Summer Rae get into a full-on girl-fight, and we’ve got the exclusive first look. Click to WATCH these ladies smack down, plus hear Nattie sound off on her enemy, calling her ‘classless,’ ‘trashy’ and even more in our interview!
The WWE doesn’t enlist the Divas for no reason. Nattie and Summer Rae know how to put on a serious fight, inside or outside of the ring, as proven by this EXCLUSIVE sneak peek of Total Divas. Spoiler alert: cussing, hair-pulling and screaming ahead.
‘Total Divas': Nattie & Summer Rae Fight
On the third episode of Total Divas, airing on Sept. 21, Nattie and Summer Rae get into it — it’s a downright girl-on-girl fight, and its not in the ring.
Nattie complains about her sinuses being congested, but she’s being a bit smug about the reasoning. Is she really sick or is this the result of Summer Rae smacking her in the face? Well, Summer says that Nattie is suggesting it’s her fault, in this exclusive clip, debuted by HollywoodLife.com.
“I don’t even wanna go there right now,” Nattie says. “You’re a trashy, classless person.”
That’s not even close to where the feud ends. Summer brings up Nattie’s WWE Superstar husband, Tyson Kidd, and that’s when she really freaks out. Nattie ends up pulling her car over to the side of the road, and tries to yank Summer out of the vehicle. Instead, she just attempts to yank her hair out.
“When you talk about my husband — you think I’m going to be okay with that?” Nattie says, adding, “You don’t want to look at yourself in the mirror and know what a piece of crap you are.”
Then she criticizes her “cheap ass hair” and calls her a “cheap piece of crap,” and that’s when the hair-pulling begins.
Nattie Reacts To Pulling Summer Rae’s Hair: Exclusive WWE Interview
Nattie visited HollywoodLife.com‘s Times Square studio and told us all about the new season of Total Divas, along with the Bella Twins. We even asked what celebrity she would want to willingly fight, and she said Summer Rae, but then changed her mind because she wouldn’t want to give her any more attention — especially when she would win. (Ouch!)
“It’s interesting because we are forced to look at our own lives and it’s almost like therapy for us to address it all,” she says about the series. “But we still like to go in the ring and have a good ol’ fashioned throw down.”
As for this throw down outside of the ring?
“There is some stuff that happens, and it’s not necessary anything I’m proud of, but you pick and choose your battles in life,” Nattie says EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. “You don’t want to get physical with anyone, especially when it’s at the side of the road, but at the same time, if I don’t stand up for myself, nobody else will.”
Moral of the story, in Nattie’s words: “The lesson learned is don’t let a snake in your car — aka, Summer Rae. She’s not really a snake, but she’s snake-like.”
Rawr! These ladies have some fighting words for each other! To see how the rest of the fight goes down, tune into Total Divas Sundays (9/8c) on E!
HollywoodLifers, who’s side are you on — Nattie or Summer Rae? Let us know who you think will win this girl fight!
