Batista
We have ourselves another sign that Batista might be putting WWE in his rear view mirror. During a podcast interview with Chris Jericho, the former world heavyweight champion openly bashed the method in which the company handled his return. Batista stated that he wished management would have given him the spotlight alone during his first night back. He also stated that WWE made a mistake by bringing him in as a baby face.
August 29, 2014
Alicia Fox
Those that watched Summerslam 2014 saw Nikki Bella doing her much rumored heel turn. She is expected to work in that role on television going forward. However, WWE did something peculiar at a live event in Sacramento over the weekend. Nikki worked as a baby face. She teamed up with Emma to defeat Alicia Fox and Layla El. The face team even attacked Rosa Mendes, who was portraying a heel character. No word yet on why WWE opted to do this.
August 24, 2014
Christy Hemme
In a bit of news that is sure to disappoint the millions of guys that were lusting after her, Christy Hemme has revealed that she is pregnant with her first child. The TNA Knockout is five months into the pregnancy. Christy should be giving birth by the end of the year or the beginning of next year. She also revealed that she and her husband have had baby names picked out since they initially met.
August 21, 2014
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.
August 11, 2014
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.
August 5, 2014
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.
May 12, 2014
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
May 9, 2014
Brutus Magnus
Rumors have been floating around for a couple of months now about Mickie James being pregnant, and the former TNA Knockout has now confirmed it during a recent interview with Totally Driven Radio. Mickie also revealed that she is due to give birth to her first baby some time in September. Former world champion Brutus Magnus is said to be the father.
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
April 26, 2014
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
Justin Gabriel
Through Instagram, Justin Gabriel stated that is not going to be doing the ice bucket challenge. The WWE star revealed that he takes cold showers every day. He also stated that he would much rather see people donating the full amount instead of doing the challenge in order to donate a smaller amount. To his credit, Gabriel has already donated to the cause.
August 21, 2014
Justin Gabriel
While he is a reliable performer who does not cause trouble backstage, Justin Gabriel was one of the candidates to be on the receiving end of a release from WWE when the company was doing budget cuts. He apparently has survived the cuts and will remain with the company for the time being. It is interesting to note that Gabriel has not been utilized on Monday Night Raw since last September.
July 27, 2014
Andre the Giant
Despite not being utilized all that frequently on television, Justin Gabriel was given a spot in the Andre the Giant match at Wrestlemania 30. The belief is that WWE is rewarding him for not making a big fuss about being removed from Royal Rumble 2014 at the last minute. Management likes that he does as he is told backstage.
April 6, 2014
Titus ONeil
WWE has announced that the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal will consists of Alberto Del Rio, Big E Langston, Big Show, Brodus Clay, Christian, Cody Rhodes, Damien Sandow, Darren Young, Dolph Ziggler, Drew McIntyre, Fandango, Goldust, Great Khali, Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal, Justin Gabriel, Kofi Kingston, Mark Henry, Miz, R Truth, Rey Mysterio, Santino Marella, Sheamus, Sin Cara, Titus ONeil and Zack Ryder.

March 25, 2014
Justin Gabriel
At Royal Rumble 2014, Justin Gabriel came really close to making his pay per view return, but that spot was taken away from him at the last minute. His chances of working Wrestlemania 30 this year has increased tremendously now that he is one of the many veteran performers who are being penciled in for the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal.
March 18, 2014
Miz
In a rather interesting move, WWE had Ryback come out to interfere in the match between Miz and Justin Gabriel during the big live event at Madison Square Garden this weekend. Ryback assaulted both performers, but they were able to counter him. Miz and Gabriel both hit their finishing move on Ryback to the enjoyment of the audience.

Justin Gabriel
Some rumors were floating around this week that Justin Gabriel had died, but he is alive and well. It turns out that someone had gone into his profile page on Wikipedia and updated his date of death to be February 7. Since a lot of people choose to wholeheartedly believe the site without checking, some thought that the WWE star had died.
February 10, 2014
Justin Gabriel
While he is not a threat to take anyone's place in the main event scene, Justin Gabriel has been receiving praise backstage in WWE because of his demeanor. Despite not being given a televised victory on Monday Night Raw or Smackdown since October of 2012, he really does not complain much and simply just shows up for work every week.
