Exclusive: Why Several Babyfaces Haven't Appeared Live On Raw

If you've watched Monday Night Raw lately, you have have noticed a few absences from live programming.

When Fightful.com asked multiple WWE employees about the thought process of having three top babyfaces off of the show, we were given a unanimous answer. WWE is taking an approach in hopes to not overexpose the characters, as they've not had the best of luck in booking faces lately.

Fightful will discuss more about this on Wednesday's "The List And Ya Boy Podcast," live at 3 PM EST.
