Nikki really wants kids and she seems to be willing to consider the procedure.
SmackDown in Cincinnati, Ohio shows the Divas welcoming Rosa back. Brie says Rosa lost herself on the road too often and developed a reputation.

Back to Eva Marie and her family, sitting down to dinner. Her brother, Neil, is informed about the news and begins grilling her about the venue. The family wants a traditional Catholic wedding and Jonathan is a non-denominational Christian, so this leads to conflict. Eva Marie’s dad is disappointed as we break.
We join John and Nikki at home. Jennifer, the interior decorator, is at the house and they call decor.

Her mom says she didn’t want Eva to worry while on the road and they are doing the shots to hold off the cancer as long as possible.
