4. Becoming The Man
Despite her obvious popularity, WWE didn't seem content to roll with Lynch as much more than the number two or three babyface on the women's side of the roster. In fact, WWE attempted a heel turn for Lynch at SummerSlam 2018, rooted in bitterness toward Charlotte Flair.
Instead of booing her, fans openly sided with Lynch, who used the turn to unleash a new side of herself. No longer smiling beneath steampunk smokestacks, Lynch became a "Made Man" through cutting social media retorts, and a biting new attitude that turned many heads.
