• 2 RAW Wrestlers Have Turned Babyface
The new RAW Women’s Champion Asuka was very surprised when she found out about Becky Lynch’s pregnancy on last week’s RAW. When she found out about it, she hugged Lynch, signifying her babyface turn.
But Asuka is not the only one who turned face last week. Her partner, Kairi Sane, is also a babyface now. Sane was seen congratulating Lynch on her announcement backstage during RAW, which hinted a potential babyface turn.
WrestlingNewsco confirmed that Sane is indeed a babyface now.
“Yeah, Kairi is a face now until Vince changes his mind.”
The babyface turn of The Kabuki Warriors wasn’t originally planned, but WWE went this path because Asuka will have to face heels like Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax on RAW now.
