WWE Diva Not Cleared to Wrestle, Vince Says No More Heels and Faces, George Barrios News

- Georgie Barrios is now working out of WWE's TV facility as opposed to the main headquarters in Stamford. Hes now in charge of everything there, which is a major change. They are also doing a lot of interviews and additional hiring for the Network right now.

- For what it's worth, Vince McMahon said there are no more babyfaces and heels at a recent creative meeting.

- The reason Layla hasn't been around is because she is not medically cleared to wrestle. There are no details as to whether this is an injury or another reason and there is no estimated date listed for her return.

They're clearly not showing no more heels/faces.

While I don't mind a few ambiguous characters, you still need heel/face dynamics, tbh.

This "no heels or faces" thing has me intrigued.

If it means more well-rounded characters with more complex motivations, then it might be a welcome experiment.

Judging by the way HHH/Steph are acting on Raw and SD, I guess Vince really wants to blur the line between heels and faces. Even then, you need good and bad guys in wrestling.

It's not like Vince is too far off, in all honesty. Yes, in reality it's not the end-all-be-all of character alignments like he's saying, but the power that the company has in determining what alignment a character has diminished heavily when the fans decide for themselves who to cheer and who to boo. I'm actually very happy that Vince has conceded, since it was an inevitability (one that has both positive and negative aspects) that was brought about courtesy of the internet.

And like max314 said, if this new mentality brings about more interesting characters that fans could actually remain invested in for more than 15 minutes, by all means bring it on.

It probably means that creative has gotten so lazy that they don't want to bother to remember who is heel and face.

I don't know man, if done right I don't see why that would have to be a bad thing tbh. Simply thinking in terms of heels/faces (black/white) really limits you in character building, whereas if you're able to use differing shades of grey (your anti-heroes, your good guys with a mean streak, your bad guys with a warped yet clearly existent sense of honour, your burnt out faces, etc etc etc) you can make things a whole lot more interesting.

If anything, calling it heels/faces or not calling it that seems like a purely semantical issue to me...
