PWInsider is reporting that Rhea Ripley is now officially considered a babyface. That was obvious by the way she’s been booked in recent weeks but it’s now considered official internally.
As noted earlier, Toni Storm is going to be a babyface on SmackDown. WrestlingNews.co was told last week that Vince McMahon feels that she can be one of the big stars on the brand.
In regards to Keith Lee, PWInsider states that his absence was not a creative decision and he is “cleared” from whatever was keeping him off WWE TV.
In regards to the Braun Strowman shirts on shop.wwe.com, the shirts are not new so there is nothing to indicate that he will be returning to WWE. The shirts have actually been up for several weeks but for some reason, they were marked as new.
As we first noted on Monday afternoon, McMahon is a big fan of Nikki A.S.H. and she is beloved by everyone in the locker room. There was a lot of love shown to her when she walked backstage after her big title win last night. WrestlingNews.co was told that there are a lot of merchandise ideas in the pipeline for A.S.H.
