Lately WWE has been producing a number of reality based programing: from the long running Total Divas on the E Network, to the reboot of WWE Tough Enough, to the documentaries on the WWE Performance Center.
While waiting patiently for WWE’s newest documentary Breaking Ground, which looks amazing, to air next month as an exclusive to the WWE Network, there’s still Total Divas. Yes, it’s hard to admit it but with the addition of Paige, it became a guilty pleasure. Then that Kevin guy had to ruin everything by popping the question. How dare he propose? Paige was supposed to be my future ex-wife.
Don’t get me wrong, the majority of the show can be cringe worthy, especially with Eva Marie’s dead stare during those one-on-one interviews. She’s like a bright redheaded owl. Too bad Renee Young isn’t a regular on the show. I’m just saying if they plan on adding on to the cast, I propose Sasha Banks to be brought onboard to stir things up… like a legit boss.
For the most part, it’s the guys that make Total Divas worth it. There was an episode when Dolph Ziggler booked Jon Fatu (Jimmy Uso) at the comedy club. Jimmy’s bit revolved around Ziggler being this god at the beach who just glowed. It was hilarious. I just wished it was uncensored because there were a couple of mfers thrown in there.
Then there’s the super bromance between Tyson Kidd and Cesaro featured on the last episode. Kidd and Cesaro text each other, talk about each other, work out together, go grab coffee together–black, just like Cesaro likes it. And of course Natalya is jealous of their Tag Team bromance and said they should spoon feed each other cake for their wedding. And Cesaro swung back with the zinger, “We don’t eat cake, we’re in shape.”
WWE should totally consider doing a mock-reality TV series with just the guys. Similar to Kevin Hart’s Real Husbands of Hollywood, it could be the Real Husbands of WWE starring Tyson Kidd and Jimmy Uso with Cesaro and Dolph Ziggler.
Reportedly USA Network was disappointed with the ratings of the sixth season of Tough Enough, especially with part of the show shot live for real-time voting results. The show had a rough start, but it got better as they found their footing and started putting the pieces together.
Although TE was entertaining, Tough Talk on the WWE Network made TE great. Because there were no video packages or silly drama; it was straight to the point honest talk from the judges to the contestants. Even the contestants who were voted off got to speak their minds before leaving the premises.
And the reality sunk in, this is not something that can be figured out through a 13-week program. To be a WWE Superstar and a WWE Diva takes time and dedication to hone a craft that will have you sacrifice your free time.
It takes more than winning TE to make it in WWE, but hopefully Sara Lee and Josh make the most of it by training non-stop at the WWE Performance Center. Who knows? Maybe we will see them on WWE NXT someday.
Speaking of the Performance Center, did anyone catch the E:60 documentary “Behind the Curtain” on ESPN? Following the lives of Corey Graves, Xavier Woods, and Adam Rose was awe-inspiring. You would think that the spotlight would have rejuvenated Adam Rose’s career. But it did quite the opposite.
So who’s with me on WWE making the mock-reality TV series Real Husbands of WWE?
