WWE star Jaxson Ryker debuted a new look on last night’s episode of Raw on the USA Network ahead of a potential planned push.
Ryker had short hair for his match against Elias, making him look even more generic than he already did.
There have been plenty of examples throughout the years of WWE making talent cut their hair short ahead of a planned push, notably Dolph Ziggler many years ago, and Angel Garza more recently.
Considering the fact that Ryker is still around after all the recent cuts, and now he’s changed up his look, it seems like WWE could have plans in place to build him up.
Despite a lot of fans’ opinions of him, Ryker is being presented as a babyface in his current feud with Elias, and won the match last night via countout after Elias walked out.
We’ll have to see what the reception is like when fans are back at shows next month, because if Twitter is anything to go by, the crowd certainly won’t be accepting Ryker as a babyface.
