5 possible heel turns that could happen at Backlash 2018
When a superstar's career is lying in a pit of obscurity the quickest solution any wresting critic or aficionado would suggest is for that superstar to leave their babyface persona behind and flip the switch.
Therefore, while it is lazy booking to turn a superstar heel on a dime in the modern era of professional wrestling, the benefits reaped from that decision is immense for WWE at the moment.
Moreover, when analyzing the 2018 Backlash match card, countless wrestlers have reached a point in their career where a heel turn would have logical reasoning and be aptly justified.
Moreover, Raw and Smackdown Live lacks authentic top heels in many divisions. Thus a heel turn from any one of these underutilised stars would genuinely change the landscape of the blue and red brand.
#1 Bobby Lashley
When Bobby Lashley returned to WWE on the night after WrestleMania 34, a majority of the WWE Universe were thrilled to witness the former United States Champion dominate monsters and jobbers in Vince McMahon's squared circle once again.
However, with Lashley's reported plans falling through, the WWE creative team made the most significant mistake possible when handling Bobby Lashley, they let him fade into the background.
From multiple tag team matches on Raw to more tag team matches on pay-per-view, Bobby Lashley has gone from a singles megastar to second-rate tag team partner in a matter of weeks.
Therefore, now that WWE has booked Lashley and Braun Strowman in a tag team match at Backlash, the only way to save some of Lashley’s underused star power is to have him destroy the Monster Among Men.
Monday Night Raw has been missing a truly destructive force ever since Strowman tuned face, and Lashley could quickly fill that spot.
