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.

For those of you that are having trouble separating fact from fiction, the suspension thrown at Brock Lesnar for creating a carnage during Monday Night Raw is simply a part of the story line. WWE wanted to ease some of the resentment from members of the internet wrestling community that held a grudge against Lesnar for not being there full time. This is part of their long term plan to eventually turn him into a full blown baby face.

One of the ideas floating around backstage in WWE right now is to have Sheamus making his much anticipated and much promoted return during the Intercontinental Championship ladder match at Wrestlemania. He would initially do so as a baby face before getting the fans to turn on him by costing Daniel Bryan the match. A title feud between the two would then take place for the next month or so.

While the majority of fans are hoping that Undertaker gets the win at Wrestlemania, there are those backstage in WWE that feel that it would be best for business if Bray Wyatt were to pick up the much needed victory, one that would give him enough momentum to head back into a main event scene that is set to feature a baby face champion in Roman Reigns. A loss for the Phenom would build anticipation for another return next year.

In a move that was widely expected, WWE announced that AJ Lee and Paige will be teaming up against Nikki Bella and Brie Bella at Wrestlemania. The two baby faces were long candidates to be on the card because of their popularity. Management knew that it would appease the fans. The Bella Twins were also long considered as candidates to be a part of some type of divas match at the pay per view because they are the centerpieces.

On Monday Night Raw, fans witnessed Randy Orton being in cahoots with The Authority once again. That has led some to believe that he pulled a heel turn just one day after making a return at Fast Lane to attack Seth Rollins, Big Show and Kane. As of right now, WWE still has plans on Orton being utilized as a baby face. They simply wanted to show the friction between Orton and Rollins again in case some fans have forgotten after four months.
