Report: WWE Raw Star Quietly Turned Babyface

Bolstering the babyface ranks...

On last week's episode of Monday Night Raw, WWE introduced the Brand-To-Brand Invitational, Randy Orton challenged Edge to a normal singles match at Backlash, and The Viking Raiders proved they were better than The Street Profits at basketball. 

Becky Lynch also relinquished the Raw Women's Championship to Money In The Bank winner Asuka, who seemingly turned babyface in the process.

The Empress Of Tomorrow wasn't the only Superstar to turn face on last week's Raw, however, as Paul Davis at WrestlingNews.co revealed her tag team partner Kairi Sane will also be a babyface going forward "until Vince changes his mind." 

Davis also noted that WWE did not originally plan to turn either Superstar, but the company wanted the new Raw Women's Champion to be a babyface as Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax are in line for title shots in the coming months. 

What this week's episode of Monday Night Raw has in store for The Pirate Princess remains to be seen, but WWE Champion Drew McIntyre will go one on one with SmackDown Superstar King Corbin, and Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross will defend the Women's Tag Team Championships against The IIconics.
