Report: Rhea Ripley Now Considered A Babyface On WWE Raw

A turn for The Nightmare

WWE have reportedly changed Rhea Ripley to a babyface over the past couple of weeks.

Ripley, who lost the Raw Women's Championship to Charlotte Flair at WWE Money In the Bank on Sunday, had been presented as a heel upon her official debut on the main roster back in March. 

The Nightmare challenged Asuka for the Title at WrestleMania 37, successfully defeating The Empress Of Tomorrow for her first Championship on the main roster.

Her feud with Flair in the months since has led to some confusion among fans as to who WWE wanted them to cheer for, and PWInsider is now reporting that Ripley is 100 per cent considered a babyface backstage in the company.

Ripley's transition from baddie to good guy has been a quiet switch in the promotion over the past few weeks but it has now been made clear internally that the 24-year-old is to be treated and booked as a babyface. 

Ripley beat Flair in her rematch for the Raw Women's Championship in the main event of Monday's show, albeit by disqualification, with Flair then losing the Title to Nikki A.S.H as she cashed in her Money In The Bank briefcase.
