Last night on Friday Night Smackdown, Bayley re-captured the Smackdown Women’s Championship in a close match with Charlotte Flair.
The match saw Bayley not only debut a new look, but also consolidate her heel turn by attacking her inflatable Bayley Buddies.
It appears that the decision to have Bayley depart fully from her babyface ways has not been received too kindly by young fans who watched the show.

The older portion of the audience understands that Bayley was doing nothing of note as a babyface, so turning her fully heel is probably the best thing for her.
However, this certainly proves that amongst younger fans, Bayley was still very much a fan favourite.
