Bulgarian Bride wars
Lana and Rusev are headed to Buglaria for their second wedding, which will follow all The Super Athlete’s native traditions. Unfortunately, he either doesn’t know what they are or just isn’t telling Lana, and all of her expectations are upended one after another, as the nuances of the wedding (she can’t pick her own maid of honor; her hair has to get cut at a christening) reveal themselves. The Ravishing Russian’s desire to stay in control of everything almost derails the wedding, at least until Natalya talks her off the ledge. The couple reconciles and, following an all-day dance in the street, is finally married.
You can dance if you want to
Nikki Bella’s comeback gets a twist on this week’s Total Divas when the former Divas Champion receives an offer to compete on “Dancing With the Stars” while she’s in the midst of her training. The Fearless One instantly sees major potential in spreading her return over multiple brands and reaching as many viewers as possible, but she’s hesitant to commit as she’d likely be unable to both wrestle and dance at the same time. After John Cena — no stranger to reality TV — basically confirms that it’s one or the other, Nikki ultimately turns “Dancing With the Stars” down and decides to focus on getting back to the ring.
Daughter knows best
Eva Marie returns home this week to visit her father, who’s both still battling cancer and recovering from knee surgery. Unfortunately, she thinks his dietary and lifestyle choices aren’t exactly conducive to his recovery, from his diet to his (apparent) continued smoking habit. Not only does she attempt to clear the house of all his vices, she pleads for him to retire so he can spend more time with his family. It all leads to a teary confrontation where her father reassures her that he understands her concerns and will retire when the time is right, but wants to do so on his own terms.
