WWE might be turning one popular Superstar heel soon.
That Superstar is former Raw Women’s Champion Bayley. According to Cageside Seats, there could be a Bayley heel turn coming in the near future.
Bayley has been wrestling since 2008 when she was working the independent scene. After four years she was signed to a developmental deal with WWE and sent to NXT. After winning the NXT Women's Title, she would make her main roster debut at the Battleground pay-per-view (PPV) in July of last year before returning a month later on an episode of Monday Night RAW for her official debut.
While Bayley was loved by the WWE Universe upon her arrival to the main roster, her character quickly got old for fans. After winning the WWE RAW Women's Championship from Charlotte Flair, Bayley would drop the title to Alexa Bliss, which marked the beginning of the end for her run as a fan-favorite baby face.
Due to her inability to get 'extreme' against Bliss, fans began to turn off from the Bayley character, and her interest from WWE fans skyrocketed downwards. Fans began to call for a heel turn for Bayley to refresh her career, but it would be hard to turn her due to how over she is with the younger WWE audience.
Recently on The Steve Austin Show, the WWE Hall of Famer talked with Bayley about various topics including a possible heel turn. Here is what she had to say:
"It breaks my heart even thinking about it! And so, when I do have these ideas, like, I write everything down, ideas, just in case, they want ideas, 'like, okay, we're going to do this,' I have ideas for that.”
“But even just thinking about that, like one day, I was like, 'Yeah, I'm going to pitch this! I'm going to do it! Like, I want to be a heel!' And then, I went out that night for our match, and I saw maybe five or six girls dressed up like me, and we had met these girls before the show that were just in tears meeting us. I was like, 'okay, no, I can't do it! I can't turn my back on them. I don't know what would happen.'"
