• SmackDown Star Working As A Babyface On TV & Heel At Live Events
According to the Wrestling Observer, former SmackDown Women’s Champion Carmella (who recently changed her hair color) is working as a babyface on TV and as a heel at Live Events.
It should be noted that she was only turned babyface for the WWE Mixed Match Challenge. There was no reasoning behind it.
Who knows, she might act as a heel on TV again after she’s done with the Mixed Match Challenge tournament.
