• Backstage News On Who’s Going To Replace Roman Reigns As The Top Babyface On SmackDown
As seen on last night’s SmackDown, Roman Reigns officially turned heel and joined forces with Paul Heyman.
At one point, Reigns was the biggest babyface on SmackDown, but that spot is now empty with his heel turn.
PWInsider is reporting that the plan going forward is for “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt to be featured as the top babyface on the blue brand. On the other hand, Reigns will be the top heel on SmackDown, coming just before Braun Strowman, who’ll also be a top heel on the brand.
It was also noted that a big push is coming for Naomi due to the #NaomiDeservesBetter trend. She already has a win over SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley from last week’s show. She’s expected to face Bayley for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at Clash Of Champions.
