5 Babyfaces who returned to WWE as heels
Professional Wrestling has seen a string of Superstars come and go, with a select few having etched their names in the annals of wrestling history. The primary aspect of pro-wrestling is the age-old battle between a good and bad.
These rivalries between babyfaces and heels is responsible for selling tickets and intriguing fans if done correctly.
There have also been occasions when Superstars didn't get the desired reactions from the crowd. In these cases, the company either turns their character around or gives them a much-needed break and brings them back somewhere down the line, with a new persona. In the list below, we will take a look at five WWE Superstars who left WWE as babyfaces and came back to the company as heels.
#5 Sasha Banks, 2019
Let's first discuss the moment that inspired this article. At WrestleMania 35, the babyface duo of Bayley and Sasha Banks lost their Women's Tag Team titles to The IIconics in a Fatal Four-Way match. Banks took a hiatus from WWE immediately and wasn't seen on TV for months.
This was coupled with tons of speculation regarding Banks joining AEW, and leaving WWE for good. Banks' cryptic tweets acted as fuel to the fire. The rumors were laid to rest tonight, as Banks finally made her long-awaited return to WWE on Monday Night Raw.
She came out and hugged her friend Natalya, but immediately turned heel and launched a dastardly attack on her.
The helpless and injured Natalya couldn't do much to fend her off. Becky Lynch came out to confront Banks, and the two kicked off a brawl on the outside of the ring. It ended with The Boss hitting The Man with a series of chair shots.
