4 Superstars who should turn heel at WrestleMania 34
In less than two weeks' time, WrestleMania 34 takes place at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in the city of New Orleans on April 8. WWE's annual flagship show is fast approaching, and looking at the current storylines, some twists and turns are bound to happen.
The day of WrestleMania brings with it a surprising turn of events. Legends return, titles change hands, and a lot of babyfaces turn into heels and vice versa. The crowd will be excited, and one is certain to expect a lot of fireworks, both literally and figuratively.
This year is no different. We might get to see a few fan-favorite wrestlers embracing their dark side, and create a huge swerve moment in front of thousands of people.
Here are four Superstars who should turn heel at the grandest stage of them all.
#4 Finn Balor
Finn Balor has been one of the fan favorites in WWE ever since he signed with the company. He had the longest reign as the NXT Champion and even became the first wrestler in WWE history to win a world title in their pay-per-view debut after becoming the inaugural Universal Champion at SummerSlam 2016. However, he relinquished the title a day later due to a shoulder injury.
Since returning from the injury, Finn has never been near to the main-event scene. His feud with Bray Wyatt was a failure which only dropped him to the mid-card status.
Balor has been one of the most effective babyfaces; the crowd really loves him and want him to be one of the top guys. His face run isn't earning him any push, and maybe it's time to revamp his character a little.
Balor is set to face The Miz and Seth Rollins for the former's Intercontinental Championship in a triple-threat match at WrestleMania 34. While he may not be the favorite to win the title, a little assistance by Gallows and Anderson would make him an instant villain.
A heel turn will be a refreshing start for Balor and add a lot of dynamics to his character. The OGBC (Original Balor Club) can go on to become a dominating heel stable just like The Shield or The Wyatt Family. This way, Balor can finally make his return to the main-event program.
AJ Styles is rumored to move to Raw after WrestleMania. A reunion of the complete Club could create chaos and set up a feud between two ex-leaders. Styles is the biggest babyface in WWE right now, and with Finn as a heel, the two would put on a phenomenal rivalry. Even Balor's demon persona would work much better as a heel, as it will push boundaries for his character.
