Dolph Ziggler
A little buzz was created this week when Dolph Ziggler defeated Randy Orton in the main event of a WWE live event. A lot of fans believed that this would be the start of a push for the former world heavyweight champion. However, that does not appear to be the case. Ziggler was simply substituting for Roman Reigns, who was on another tour. WWE usually lets the baby face win the final match of the night to send the live audience home happy.

Dolph Ziggler
WWE has announced that Dolph Ziggler will be challenging the Miz at Summerslam 2014 for the Intercontinental Championship. While his popularity remains pretty strong, this is not a push for Ziggler. Management simply needed a mid card baby face to put over Miz. A title change is not expected to take place, as the company wants to see how far this Hollywood character can go.

Batista
During a recent interview with CBS Radio in Washington DC, Batista was asked for his opinion on Roman Reigns. The former world heavyweight champion stated that he felt that WWE is pushing Reigns a bit too quickly. Batista feels that the company would have benefited more by giving Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins a longer baby face run since the stable was really over with the audience.
August 5, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Even though the move was done at the last minute, the baby face turn for Jack Swagger has turned out a lot better than WWE had expected. Officials backstage are impressed with the audience reaction to the now patriotic character. A lot of that has to do with the heat that Lana and Alexander Rusev have generated. However, management will more than likely give a push to Swagger to see if the momentum can carry on.
August 1, 2014
Big E Langston
There are those backstage in WWE that are skeptical of the idea of doing a heel turn for Kofi Kingston, who has long been regarded as the ultimate baby face. Since he does a lot of the charity work for the company, some are afraid that it will affect that aspect of his job as well. There are rumors floating around that WWE does not have finalized plans for the new stable that also consists of Xavier Woods and Big E Langston.
July 26, 2014
Big E Langston
While rumors of a Nation of Domination stable are still floating around, there are also talks that WWE could simply be building up Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston as a tag team because they need a baby face fodder for Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. Management is seriously considering putting the tag titles on the Wyatt Family, and they're going to need more than Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso as challengers.
July 14, 2014
Sheamus
Earlier in the year, WWE had plans on doing a heel turn for Sheamus, in order to bring a little more life back into his stale character. The company even attempted the move on television, but it was botched and the majority of fans did not realize that it had taken place. Rumors going around now is that WWE has completely scrapped the idea. Sheamus will continue to work as a baby face US champion until they can decide on something for him to do.
July 6, 2014
Alexander Rusev
In a rather interesting move, Curtis Axel worked as a baby face during a live event in Pennsylvania over the weekend. It was during a match against Alexander Rusev, where Axel explained to the audience that while they may not like him, they have something in common because they all love America. Rumors have it that this was simply a one time thing because they needed someone to work against Rusev that evening. Axel is not expected to do a full face turn anytime soon.
June 16, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
Following a botched heel turn, it looks like WWE might be attempting the move again with Sheamus. The United States Heavyweight Champion is rumored to be moving into a feud with the returning Miz after his Payback 2014 match against Antonio Cesaro. Since Miz is still a baby face, there is a very good chance that WWE will try to do the heel turn with Sheamus again.
May 30, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
Now that Summer Rae has completed the filming of Marine 4 with the Miz, she will be returning to Monday Night Raw and Smackdown very soon. Upon her return to television, expect her to be utilized as a baby face in a feud against Layla El and Fandango. WWE could pair her up with a male performer, such as Dolph Ziggler, to even the odds in the feud.
May 15, 2014
Daniel Bryan
There is rumored to be a strong push backstage in WWE to elevate John Cena back into the top spot in the company, as some members of management are not completely sold on Daniel Bryan and his seemingly declining popularity. Bryan would not be dropping far, however, as WWE still feels that he can be a solid person to have at the number two baby face position.

Jim Ross
"It's hard if you're quantifying raw numbers to say anyone was more popular at their zenith than Stone Cold Steve Austin. No one sold more merchandise, tickets or pay per view than Steve. The thing with Junkyard Dog was that he was the first African American number one baby face in a major territory. For black fans especially, he was such a groundbreaking force. There was a unique emotional relationship that JYD had with his audience. He gave a whole race their guy." - Jim Ross describes Junkyard Dog and his place in wrestling history

Brutus Magnus

May 9, 2014
Adam Rose
When WWE started airing videos on Monday Night Raw to tease the eventual arrival of Adam Rose to the main roster, a lot of fans wondered which side of the fence that the developmental wrestler will be on. It appears that management will be utilizing Rose as a baby face, as he worked that role at a live event over the weekend against Heath Slater.
April 28, 2014
Seth Rollins
"It's just how things happen. It's been an interesting transformation, I suppose. But to be honest with you, we really haven't done much different. We just started targeting different people, I suppose. By that association, the fans just started to get with us. It's been fun. It's been a side to take for sure, but I think it's something that we're all pretty excited about." - Seth Rollins talks about the Shield doing a baby face turn in WWE

Godfather
Since she is pregnant and will have a hard time traveling once the baby is born, Mickie James is loading up on appearances right now. The former WWE diva still has enough name value for independent wrestling promoters to book her in autograph sessions. She was recently at an event with Mick Foley, Kevin Nash, Tommy Dreamer and the Godfather.
March 26, 2014
Emma
During a recent interview, Emma revealed that WWE has a new rule for the developmental wrestlers. They are no longer allowed to use baby oil on television because it looks really bad in high definition. Performers have long used the substance to make themselves a bit shinier and more appealing to the audience.
March 21, 2014
Eva Marie
Since she quickly married her boyfriend and kept the truth hidden from her family, as seen on the first episode of the second season of Total Divas this weekend, there are rumors spreading that Eva Marie might be pregnant. While the decision was abrupt, the WWE diva is not expecting a baby anytime soon, as her career is her main focus at the moment.

El Torito
For those of you that did not watch the Payback 2014 kickoff match, El Torito defeated Hornswoggle with a flying top rope moonsault. Hornswoggle had gotten distracted by thinking that he won after pulling off the mask. Afterwards, Hornswoggle was forced to sit in a barber chair while El Torito shaved his head. Hornswoggle is now bald, and expect WWE to promote that on Monday Night Raw this week.

Hornswoggle
Over the last decade, it has been repeatedly stated that the creative department likes to do segments that amuse Vince McMahon, and it appears that they have done that once again by pairing Hornswoggle and El Torito together in a WeeLC match at Extreme Rules 2014, where the performers will most likely work with small ladders, tables and chairs.

El Torito

April 21, 2014
El Torito
One of the ideas being tossed around right now backstage in WWE is to have Hornswoggle and El Torito wrestling one another on a pretty frequent basis. The two of them will be featured on Smackdown this week, and there could be more matches coming up. WWE had the two of them training together for a couple of weeks to ensure that the match quality is decent.
April 17, 2014
Fernando
Many within WWE have already chalked up the El Torito gimmick as a bust. Management were hoping that he could help elevate Diego and Fernando, but the audience has simply not connected with the trio. Torito will be kept around, though, as his contract is reasonably priced and kids at live events seem to enjoy his presence.
February 19, 2014
Wade Barrett

Some last minute replacements were added to Royal Rumble 2014. Initially, Xavier Woods and Wade Barrett were given spots in the big match, but WWE officials decided to remove them and replace them with JBL and El Torito instead.
