WWE planted the seeds on Raw this week as the camera cut to Melina walking away as Lay-Cool beat down Natalya following their match.
It’s said that the heel turn will be a ‘slow burn’, resulting in her feuding with Natalya.
The Observer adds: “The idea was first talked about weeks ago and apparently she got heat because there were indications she was negative about it. They instead started a deal where she was going to get back with Morrison, but that was dropped after one week.”
Thoughts: I’m very excited to see where the writers go with this. I’ve been wanting to see Melina turn heel for a while now and honestly, the heel side needs strengthening because they’re relying far too much on Lay-Cool. Melina vs Natalya is a feud that many would like to see. I enjoyed the match this past Monday and think their work together could get even better. As for the ‘heat’, I find the word ‘indications’ to be telling. So she gets heat because someone thinks she’s being negative? I know WWE is less tolerant with its Divas but yeesh.
