WWE Pitching To Bring A Women’s Reality Show Competition To A Network Soon

With the second season of Total Bellas ending next week and the seventh season of Total Divas set to debut the following week, PWInsider.com is reporting that WWE is seeking to expand its reality series net as part of its partnership with Bunim-Murray Productions, which produces the company’s E! reality series.

While they have had talks about a reality TV show centered around The Miz and Maryse they are also looking to bring back an amalgamation of the old Tough Enough series, the old Diva Searches and the competition era of the WWE NXT brand.

The concept would “seek out” a new female WWE star. We are told the idea that has been passed around would be that the series places its competitors on the road with WWE as they all travel together via tour bus.

There would be weekly competitions that would lead to eliminations before one final winner is crowned, earning a WWE contract.

WWE has been looking to revive the Diva Search idea for some time but has yet to actually do so, so this may just be the latest effort in that attempt.

    I think a “Diva’s Search” is a step in the wrong direction for women’s wrestling. As the MYC showed there is already more talent among the women wrestlers in the indies that drudging up reality stars is not needed, wanted, or helpful.

      The WWE doesn’t have to show women from the Mae Young Classic tournament on how to lock it up, going back and forth in the ring, jump off the top rope, drop kicks and etc, that they have already gotten the moves and the basics down pact.

        Yeah, and there is plenty of talent in the MYC that adding new faces to the roster via a “Diva Search” is pointless.
