Is ‘Total Divas’ cancelled?
Season 9 of Total Divas was one of its biggest. The series added a few new cast members, including WWE’s top star and former MMA fighter Ronda Rousey. One of the biggest storylines was Rousey trying to make friends with her co-workers, including Sonya Deville. The show also focused on Rousey being torn between her wrestling career and a desire to start a family.
Despite the addition of Rousey, ratings for Total Divas weren’t that great. But that didn’t stop fans from believing the show would be renewed. However, things aren’t looking good for the wrestling reality show. Although no official announcement has been made, according to Essentially Sports, the show and its spinoff Total Bellas have been cancelled.
