Backstage News on the Plans for Charlotte Flair, RAW Heels?

Although she played a heel character during Monday night’s WWE RAW broadcast, Charlotte Flair is expected to play a babyface role on the RAW brand. Obviously, Flair worked as a heel during her match with Becky Lynch on RAW.

On Monday, WWE needed an opponent to lose to Lynch with Sasha Banks not cleared, so Charlotte worked as the heel. The company didn’t want to have Bayley lose as SmackDown! Women’s Champion.

There are other heel possibilities on RAW, including Asuka and Kairi Sane having possible singles matches and Natalya potentially turning heel. There was a plan to have Natalya play a heel in a feud with Ronda Rousey, but after Jim Neidhart died Vince McMahon nixed the turn. There’s also the possibility of Rousey, Nia Jax or Ruby Riott coming onto the brand and playing heel roles when they return.
