Top SmackDown Superstar turns heel at Survivor Series

SmackDown Live logo

As seen on the Survivor Series pay-per-view, Charlotte Flair turned heel on Ronda Rousey in a shocking fashion. The heel turn happened mid-match when Flair hit Rousey with a Kendo Stick out of nowhere.

The referee disqualified Flair but she couldn’t care less about it and continued her assault on Rousey. Flair absolutely brutalized Rousey with a series of Kendo Stick shots and hit Rousey with a Natural Selection on a Steel Chair.

Flair also destroyed a number of WWE officials who tried to stop her, including the referee for the match.

    This was my entire point, thanks for reiterating it.

    Exactly. People want Charlotte heel, but totally the wrong opponent to turn her against. People were siding with Becky over Rousey all through this build up, so Charlotte by default here gained a lot more fans due to standing in for Becky against the woman they all wanted to see her beat.
    The fact they were chanting “you deserve it” at Rousey just shows you this was not the best time to do this. Although that said, the look on crying Rouseys face at the end could see her turn heel now as the fans have “turned their back on her”.

    But the comedy was, she turned heel and what did the fans do, cheer Charlotte and start booing Rousey and shouting “you deserve it” at her.

    Fans want her as a heel as they like to boo her, but turning heel (if that is what it is) against Rousey is the mistake. Due to the fact Rousey was supposed to be against Becky and Becky was running rings around her in promos and on Twitter, Rousey was getting some serious dislike from the Becky faithful. So having Charlotte face her actual gained her a lot of support she has been missing for ages.

    To be fair, this is what people have been asking for ever since WWE botched the whole Becky thing. Charlotte is a more natural heel.
    As for AJ, he has already been heel once and for most people it did not work, especially when they put him up against Cena and everyone was into “beat up Cena” as you cannot hate someone whose only goal is to beat Cena.

    Unless they turn Bayley and Sasha heel and continue down the ridiculous road of trying to tell us Becky is heel, I am not sure how those four can work together.
    Unless of course this is not an actual heel turn for Charlotte and they use that crybaby look Rousey gave at the end to turn Rousey heel, which would make sense seeing as her three friends are already heels.

    I have a better question: how are you heel when fans boo the other woman? I thought WWE already learned this lesson. Guess not.

  • Soulshroude

    Boring… another “heel” turn by Charlotte. Give us something better, like A.J. or Cena finally turning heel or something.

  • Brad Grillakis

    Looks like it’s setting up for the 4 horsewoman match we been hearing about.

  • Kristopher Robinson

    That’s probably why they did it. Turn Charlotte heel and then keep Lynch as an anti hero.

    How do you turn heel when you’re already boo’d like one.
