After the completion of Royal Rumble 2017, WWE is now again focused on creating storylines for Fastlane and WrestleMania 33. The latest WWE rumors suggest that the company might alter several storylines and a few superstars could turn heel.
If history is any indication, WWE benefits the most from “babyface” megastars who overcome all odds to win, as well as from top WWE superstars turning heel.
At present, there are no heel factions in WWE, and the company could be planning to change that before WrestleMania 33. Here is a list of top WWE superstars who could possibly turn heel.
Sasha Banks turning heel is inevitable, and it might happen very soon. There was clear evidence of this in her storyline over the past few months, and from what happened on the last Monday’s RAW, it is most certain that Banks will turn heel.
In case you missed, Sasha was preparing for the match with Nia Jax, and her best friend Bayley tried to convince her to forego the match. Not only Banks did not budge, but she also said that unlike Bayley, she was not “okay with coming up short.”
Some WWE rumors and spoilers have suggested that Sasha Banks would turn heel and there would be a triple threat match between Banks, Bayley, and Charlotte that Bayley would win. Bayley will be the “face” who overcame all odds to come out victorious, as reported by Cageside.
Last year was an amazing one for Dean Ambrose as he won the Intercontinental and WWE World championships. But since he lost the WWE World Championship to AJ Styles, his relevance has been on the decline.
Some fans blame James Ellsworth for ruining Dean’s character, but if some of the latest WWE rumors are to be believed, the company is planning to turn him heel at WrestleMania 33.
At WrestleMania 33, Ambrose could have a match with Shane McMahon and turn heel in the process. The Lunatic’s anti-authority angle will come into play in the match against Shane, and he could go against Shane and turn heel.
The New Day were the WWE Tag Team Champions for 483 days until they lost the championship to Cesaro and Sheamus. New Day seems to be heading for a split as they have been unable to make any impact after the loss.
Of late, their jokes, comedy, and catch phrases have become dull and repetitive. Some WWE rumors doing round suggest that after the split, Big E’s heel turn will follow.
Reigns is undoubtedly the most hated wrestler of the recent times. He is booed, fans rejoice when he loses a title, and he was the first “face” to win the award for most hated wrestler of the year.
He entered the Royal Rumble 2017 as a final competitor and even eliminated the Undertaker. This interaction is being seen as a sign of Reigns’ heel turn. It is evident even to the company that Roman Reigns is not working as a “face.”
The latest WWE rumors suggest that Reigns could fight the Undertaker at the WrestleMania 33 and beat him by using some dirty tactics. This can make him into one of the most epic heels of all time.
Dolph has been one of the best “babyfaces” for the WWE in the last year. Even though he may not be as popular as he used to be in 2013, he still has a decent fan following.
He has been underutilized and has never had a chance to establish himself as a top superstar. His gimmick as the Showoff was effective and Ziggler turning heel has already given a new life to his character.
Some WWE spoilers indicate that Ziggler may face John Cena at the WrestleMania 33. If these spoilers are true than before WreslteMania 33, Ziggler’s storyline as a heel would be developed even further making him one of the most hated heels of recent times.
