Report: Top WWE SmackDown Talents Now Considered Heels
New heels on WWE SmackDown
A WWE tag team will be heels on WWE TV for the first time since they moved to the main roster back in 2019.
The Street Profits have been constantly portrayed as babyfaces on either Monday Night Raw or Friday Night SmackDown but they displayed a new attitude upon aligning with Bobby Lashley in August of 2023. The group have attacked a variety of WWE talents on SmackDown so far but they have still been presented as babyfaces despite their actions and new attitude.
That looks set to change on an upcoming episode of SmackDown as WrestleVotes has reported that WWE's internal 'talent board' has been updated to reflect that Bobby Lashley and The Street Profits are now heels. LA Knight, meanwhile, is considered the top babyface on the blue brand.
"The latest 'talent board', which is used internally, saw an update post Payback on 9/3. Interesting news from the SmackDown side lists LA Knight as the top babyface. In addition, Bobby Lashley & The Street Profits are now categorized as heels," WrestleVotes tweeted.
Bobby Lashley has switched between babyface and heels roles across his multiple runs in WWE. Lashley is a two-time WWE Champion.
