Re: Bayley

I love how "heel turn" is the answer for everything in here...except that it wasn't for Ambrose.

Bayley is one of those girls who's just a little too much on the side of dorky for the WWE not to mess up an attempt for a heel turn. SHe needed a better gimmick though, because her current one was DOA once the WWE got going with it (as they usually would for everyone, but Bayley was much more susceptible to it)

That being said, Bayley is already better off simply being away from Alexa. Sucks for Sasha if she's still on RAW though.

Re: Bayley

I agree it might not work. I even said on the first page it's probably too late, but she needs to try something.

Sticking to this character is bad for her and everyone else.

Bayley is dorky enough to make it work. It would channel her natural personality.

SD's women's division is really good but it lacks credible top heels besides Charlotte.
I think that only works if the performer doesn't mind getting booed though. Bayley always looks like she is on the verge of tears if the crowd aren't behind her

But How?

What gimmick would fit good for her?

A heel turn for Becky on Charlotte did wonders for Becky now

Can it do the same for Bayley if she feuds with Charlotte?

Re: Bayley

Bayley started in NXT as a energetic superfan still in disbelief that she was apart of the WWE. We watched her rise up the ranks finally winning the title. WWE fans didn't see her evolution from starstruck newbie to women's champion, all they saw was a woman who likes inflatable tube men and hugging.

There should've been some growth from her instead we got the questionable title win against Charlotte, the Alexa feud and the friendship with Banks that wouldn't end.

Plus during her time in NXT she didn't get much promo time, her talking was via backstage interviews and video packages.
She comes across as not only being terrible on the mic but corny as well. They should go the way of Bo Dallas in NXT, someone whose oblivious of fans hatred towards them.

Re: Bayley

Bayley moving to Smackdown could be a great move for her. New challenges, new opportunities, possibly a new gimmick?

Given the roster we have there can be some great matches and feuds for Bayley. For one against Becky Lynch. They haven't wrestled each other since 2015? If im correct. Bayley vs Ember Moon, Sonya, Micki James, Asuka, kairi, these can all be great matches

Sucks for Sasha but I'd say if she does come back keep her on Raw. Would suck for her cause Bayley is no longer there and she's have to keep seeing Alexa but Raw needs more talent in the female pool right now

It is a bad thing, if you got turn heel, because the crowd got tired of you.

I was weird and made her debut in SD a lame start. I was "shocked" as well.

Billie even got a pop for kicking/punching Bayley.

It is kinda sad, if fans really start boooing people, because of some online gossip.

Could be. But still she debuted as face and was booed this week. And she was kinda protected by being surround with 9 other women.

I don`t say that won`t happen, but I am not sure that was the idea. It makes not much sense to let someone debut as face, getting booed, and then she is NOT turning heel in this very moment.
Let`s hope for Bayley, that got a plan already.

Ronda broke her hand punching the face that she said broke too easy. [8. April 2019, Becky Lynch]

Re: Bayley

Just out of curiosity, what does Montreal have against Bayley? They gave her a pretty brutal welcome, but I know they have their own taste.

Assuming she gets a better reception elsewhere, she seems like a natural ally for Becky 2 Belts, if they're not looking to turn her.
Or if they are, I guess she could pair up and drink tea with Charlotte.

Isn't that what the New Day were like as well when they turned Heel?

The last time she was booed was because people there thought her injury was fake.

I am not so sure about this ally thing is a good idea for Becky.
