Down the line, Kane is eventually going to be doing a baby face turn. However, management is not eager to pull the trigger on that just yet because they feel that the character is quite useful in his current role. They will be doing the long build up by constantly teasing it before it back. Glen Jacobs is said to be quite rejuvenated and revitalized by portraying a new character after years of playing the Big Red Machine character.

While the company would never publicly admit it, WWE views the divas division a lot differently than they do their male counterparts. Former writer Kevin Eck recently revealed that the creative department was instructed to not go with the typical baby face versus heel mentality when writing stories for the girls. Eck stated that it hurts the feuds when fans do not have a clear cut person to root for, such as the feud between AJ Lee and Paige.

During the Divas Championship match, WWE tried to trick the fans by having the Bella Twins work as baby faces. Brie Bella did the routine where she constantly tried to encourage and motivate her sister from ringside. However, everything ended when Brie decided to give a roundhouse kick to Naomi, which enabled Nikki to hit her Torture Rack finishing move and get the win. The belief is that she will drop the belt to Paige soon.

For whatever reasons, the internet wrestling community has long speculated that AJ Lee was pregnant. The speculation heated up even more once she shocked the world by retiring from WWE earlier this month. CM Punk was asked about that rumor during a convention this weekend, and he flat out denied that they were going to be having a baby. His focus right now is on training for his first UFC fight, so starting a family has to wait.

To prepare fans for the divas match at Extreme Rules, WWE has been utilizing Nikki Bella and Brie Bella as baby faces on television. However, as of right now, management is not committed to doing a full fledged face turn. The reason for that is because they still want Paige to receive her shot at the title when she gets back from filming a movie with Miz. The goal is for her to be the one to remove the belt from Nikki. Naomi is considered a filler for now.

Since Paige might not be available because she is filming a movie and Naomi just did a heel turn, WWE is looking into the possibility of Nikki Bella working as a baby face when she defends the belt against the latter at Extreme Rules on Sunday night. They even tested out the audience reaction at a live event during the tour of Europe last week. The face turn might not necessarily be a full time thing, however, as management likes the Bella Twins as is.

Some good news if you're a fan of the New Day. Since management could not get them over as baby faces, the plan now is to turn them into heel. As seen on Monday Night Raw, Xavier Woods and Big E Langston were a lot more aggressive in the ring than normal. They came close to cheating on a couple of occasions. The losses and boos will eventually cause them to go evil. This would mark the first heel turn for Kofi Kingston since joining WWE.

In a sign of how well he is being accepted as a baby face, fans voted on the WWE website that Brock Lesnar should not be fined. They feel that the suspension is more than enough of a punishment. That bodes well for the creative department because they don't have to do as much work in building up support for him from the audience. The longstanding belief is that Lesnar has what it takes to be the top baby face in the company.
