– A few days ago, we reported HERE the best heels and the best baby faces of the men’s divisions of “RAW” and “Smackdown”. Meanwhile, it’s also known which wrestlers are currently being seen in WWE as high heels and baby faces in ‘RAW’. The brand’s #1 babyface is ranked RAW Women’s Champion Bianca Belair, followed by Alexa Bliss at #2 and Rhea Ripley at #3. Meanwhile, Becky Lynch is ranked as the red brand’s top heel , followed by Carmella and Queen Zelina Vega.

– Over the past few weeks and months, as we know, several wrestlers have received new names. WALTER has become Gunther, Marcel Barthel is now Ludwig Kaiser, Pete Dunn is now called Butch, Austin Theory has lost his first name, Raul Mendoza now listens to Cruz Del Toro and Raquel Gonzalez is now called Raquel Rodriguez. These changes follow a recent directive from Vince McMahon, who clarified that new talent on the main roster cannot use their real names or the names they performed under outside of WWE. As always, the exceptions prove the rule, as these rules don’t apply to Olympic champions Gable Steveson and Cody Rhodes.

– WWE will be at the DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts tonight with “Friday Night Smackdown.” So far, two matches have been announced for the show. Ricochet will jeopardize his WWE Intercontinental Championship against Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre meets Sami Zayn. Locally, “Smackdown” is also promoted with RK-Bro (Randy Orton & Riddle), Cody Rhodes, Seth Rollins and Charlotte Flair. Meanwhile, The Usos, Roman Reigns and Ronda Rousey have yet to be announced.

– The sequel to “Smackdown” continues on the WWE Network with a new edition of “NXT LVL UP”. Three matches are announced for the show, including the debut of former ROH Women’s World Champion Rok-C, who now stars as Roxanne Perez. Perez meets Sloane Jacobs (fka Notorious Mimi) in his debut, and matches Damon Kemp vs. Troy Donovan and Tatum Paxley vs. Kiana James are also announced.

– An alley brawl between Kenny Williams and Sam Gradwell and a 2-of-3 falls tag team title match between NXT UK Tag Team Champions Mustache Mountain and Ashton Smith and Oliver Carter have been confirmed for the NXT UK edition of next week.
