Although Kylie Rae is known to wrestle as a babyface, she has constantly thought about turning heel.
Speaking to Chris Van Vliet, Rae spoke about her desire to turn heel for a long time and trying to do everything in her power to make such a turn possible. Rae noted that she wants to be able to work as a heel in order to remain versatile and be able to be a heel if and when the situation demands it. However, any attempts of her trying to plant the seeds of turning heel have been mostly thwarted.
"So much because I want to be able to be dynamic and versatile and I don't want to get booked for something and God forbid, something happens and the promoter is like, 'We need a heel' and I'm like, 'Oh, I don't know how to do that.' I always wanted to do that since the beginning of my career. It's gotten more obvious, especially as of late. I wrestle a lot for company here in Chicago called Freelance Wrestling and I am always doing stuff, for example, Stone Cold would blur the lines a bit and that's what I was trying to do because I wanted to turn heel. They were not having it. The more aggressive I would get or the more I cheat like using the guardrails, they would cheer more. I was thinking, 'Oh crap, this is not working.' It's now a joke in Freelance where they say, 'Kylie could shoot someone in the ring and the crowd would still cheer,'" Rae said.
Rae currently wrestles at IMPACT Wrestling and will compete at Slammiversary on July 18 in a gauntlet match to determine the No. 1 contender to the Knockouts Championship. You can check out Rae’s interview with Van Vliet in the video at the top of the page.
