Even if you are a big wrestling fan, you may not watch Total Divas. The WWE already operates within the bubble of a fake reality, and perhaps you aren’t interested in a different flavor of fake reality, which is to say Total Divas. However, recently there was something pretty cool on the most recent episode of the show, at least if you are interested in the current Smackdown women’s champion.
That would, of course, be Naomi. For a lot of years Naomi just sort of floated in the ether in the women’s division. She was pretty good in the ring, but she didn’t have a hook. Then, of course, she debuted her new look, and her new entrance. Naomi began to “Feel the glow” as it were. The bright, neon colors, the quasi-techno music, the dancing, it was all pretty massive. And it worked. Suddenly, Naomi had a “thing,” and even a catchphrase. Now Naomi can get people to chant “Feel the glow” along with her. I would argue that if not for Naomi’s new entrance, she wouldn’t be champ right now.
Before all that, though, Naomi had to make her new entrance for the first time. It could have easily fallen flat. We know now that it didn’t, but in this Total Divas clip, you can see the machinations that led up to Naomi feeling the glow for the first time, and also the entrance itself. It’s an interesting bit of behind-the-scenes action. Maybe there’s a reason for people who don’t like reality shows to watch Total Divas after all.
