This reality series lets viewers look in on the personal lives of the Bellas, which is very much defined by their legacy inside the ring. What makes it interesting is how these women, along with their wrestler husbands, reveal personalities that are very different from their wrestling personas. There's family conflict, but often Total Bellas' more entertaining moments come from the family members' quirkier sides, including John Cena's desire to create a Downtown Abbey-esque family experience.

It's your usual lighthearted reality fare, but also points out some weighty issues associated with professional wrestling, including the physical harm done to wrestlers' bodies throughout their careers. The long-lasting problems associated with sustained brain injuries is also quietly noted. This aside, WWE fans will certainly find Total Bellas a fun way of seeing some wrestling greats in a whole new light.
