Natalya talks new blood Alexa Bliss, Nia Jax and Carmella joining Total Divas

In what some may call a Divas’ casting revolution, season 7 of the WWE and E! Network hit series Total Divas is almost upon us. Closing in on 100 episodes of the reality show original cast member Natalya is welcoming three new wrestlers to the cast this season.

Joining the current SmackDown women’s champion on the Wednesday November 1st premiere will be Alexa Bliss, Nia Jax and Carmella. Before her Hell in a Cell title defense Sunday versus Charlotte, Natalya sat down with TV Insider to discuss how the three new superstars gelled with the current cast.

“Carmella has actually become one of my closest friends. We travel together,” Natalya said. "We just came back from a tour of China, Japan. We made it through Hurricane Irma. We both live in Tampa and were freaking out. We hugged each other once we knew would be okay. …”

"Nia is such a character. She is going to be so well-liked on Total Divas because she not only wears her heart on her sleeve, but Nia just says what she thinks. I aspire to be her in that sense in that I can say whatever I want. She says what she feels, and I think the world needs more of that. Alexa is adorable. She is just as lovable in real life as she is on TV. She is very relatable. Alexa was a pleasure to work with when she was on SmackDown Live. She is really growing in WWE and is a good person.”

With a cast shake-up for season 7, which WWE superstar will bring the most drama to the Total Divas set? Most comedy? Most GIF-able moments?
