SK's take on reports suggesting that Bayley could turn heel
A Bayley heel turn could be around the corner, according to a report from Cageside Seats. Now, this may take a number of wrestling fans by surprise since the Hugger was widely expected to have a big match with a heel Sasha Banks down the road.
However, WWE's booking of Bayley has been abysmal, starting with the decision to have her win the Raw Women's Championship at Fastlane — a B pay-per-view. The loses to Alexa Bliss, who has now surpassed her as Monday Night Raw's leading lady, in comprehensive fashion haven't helped either.
In fact, things have gotten to the point where the crowd actually boos Bayley on occasion, as opposed to simply being apathetic towards her. This phenomenon reached its apex on the July 31, 2017, episode of Monday Night Raw when the fans booed her out of the building after she announced that she would miss Summerslam due to a separated shoulder.
At this juncture, the division has moved beyond the San Jose native and appears to be heading towards a match between Alexa Bliss and Asuka for the Raw Women's Championship. Therefore, a heel turn is the only way for Bayley to rejuvenate her character and regain the momentum she once had in NXT.
