That’s a way to go. There are a lot of wrestlers on the WWE roster and some of them are easier to present than others. Sometimes a wrestler needs a little bit of a twist to make them work better though there is no guarantee that something is going to work. Every now and then a decision is made that might not make the most sense and now WWE is trying something else.

According to, Jaxson Ryker is expected to be a babyface going forward on the Monday Night Raw roster. Ryker has recently split from Elias and the two will be feuding going forward, with Elias working as the heel. This would be the first time that Ryker has worked as a babyface in WWE and comes as he has begun a new character focused on his former career in the military.

This could be a big deal. Check out what Ryker can do:

AJ Styles & Omos vs. Elias & Jaxson Ryker – Raw Tag Team Championship Match: Raw, May 31, 2021

R-K-Bro vs. Elias & Jaxson Ryker: Raw, May 3, 2021

Opinion: This is one of those things that is likely going to cause some issues among some fans. I’m not sure how well the idea is going to go over, though at least WWE is trying something new. Ryker is a bit of a controversial star to say the least and this might get some people talking in a less than popular way. Then again maybe it will work as it isn’t like things have been going great on Monday Night Raw in recent weeks.
