#4 Turning heel

Sasha Banks could get back to her heel roots from NXT.

Whether Sasha Banks were to help Bayley win against the champion’s wishes, or help her only to betray her in the immediate aftermath, either approach could set up Banks to play a more heel-like character than she previously has on the main roster.

To be fair, Banks did debut ostensibly as a heel when she was a part of Team BAD with Naomi and Tamina Snuka. Banks never got much opportunity to shine during that era, though, and it’s consequently a pretty forgettable part of her main roster run. In contrast, when she was in NXT, Banks was defined by her arrogant heel persona that took her all the way to substantial run with the NXT Women’s Championship.

The heel turn could be enough to reinvigorate Banks and, in particular, help her get over previous disappointments with WWE booking in favor of a bold new direction for her creatively, and playing to what are quite arguably her greatest strengths.
