WWE has made a significant shift in the alignment of three of its stars, transitioning them from heels to babyfaces in a recent storyline development.
The build-up to this change involved Bobby Lashley being associated with The Street Profits on television for several months. This alliance eventually led to a feud with another trio of wrestlers, who were also part of a faction. The Street Profits underwent a heel turn when they joined forces with Lashley in a new faction on SmackDown.
Their rivalry escalated as they entered into a program with AOP (Authors of Pain) and Killer Kross, which culminated in a dramatic moment on SmackDown when the newly formed faction attacked the established stars after interrupting them.
According to reports from Pwinsider, WWE has internally reclassified Bobby Lashley and The Street Profits as babyfaces, marking a significant shift in their character alignments.
As for the future, it remains unclear whether WWE intends to save a highly-anticipated six-man tag team match featuring Lashley, The Street Profits, Kross, and AOP for the Royal Rumble pay-per-view or if it will unfold on an upcoming episode of SmackDown. Wrestling fans will undoubtedly be eagerly awaiting the next chapter in this evolving storyline.
