A Babyface Shine is the typical opening part of a professional wrestling match. During this part of the match, the babyface will establish an early dominance in the match-up, often by hitting many high-energy, often high-flying typical babyface maneuvers, such as arm drags, hip tosses, and dropkicks. Heavier babyfaces will hit running clotheslines and suplexes.
The Babyface Shine is cut short by a heel who is building heat. In a match where time is running short, the Babyface Shine will be cut from the match completely.
