Bayley debuts new persona, regains WWE SmackDown Women's title


Bayley has fully turned heel and is again the SmackDown Women's Champion.

Bayley regained the title by defeating Charlotte Flair in the main event of tonight's SmackDown. Charlotte's most recent reign lasted under a week. She had won the championship from Bayley at Hell in a Cell this past Sunday.

Before tonight's match, Bayley debuted a new persona. She has a shorter haircut and destroyed the inflatable tube men that have long been part of her entrance.

New music for Bayley played after she defeated Charlotte for the title. She also cut a brief post-match promo, telling the crowd "Hey bitches, screw all of you."

Bayley's heel turn began when she helped Sasha Banks lay out Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch with a steel chair last month.

The WWE Draft kicked off on tonight's SmackDown and will conclude on Monday's Raw. Bayley and Charlotte are in the pool of wrestlers eligible to be drafted on Monday. Lynch was drafted to Raw tonight, while Banks was drafted to SmackDown.
