6 Wrestlers Who Could Turn Heel In 2019
Just like every superhero needs a villain, every babyface needs a heel. Playing a heel in WWE is easier said than done. Fans don’t just have to hate you but they have to love to hate you. This is where things could get tricky. The past few months have seen some sudden heel and face turns out of nowhere. These heel turns have worked out well.
Looking at the entire WWE roster, we can see there are a few wrestlers who are in need of a desperate heel turn to make their character a little bit more interesting. Moreover, some of those wrestlers seem to be stuck as a babyface when they really should be heels. Therefore, a heel turn seems imminent.
Hence, we have prepared a list of 6 WWE wrestlers that could turn heel in 2019.
#6 Bobby Roode
Fans who have followed Bobby Roode in TNA will know just how good he is at portraying a heel. He portrayed a heel almost poetically that fans just loved to hate him. But, you don’t have to look so far into the past to see his heel side.
Bobby Roode debuted in NXT as a heel. He was so good that he immediately climbed the ladder of success in NXT and soon became the brand’s top champion. However, towards the end of his run as champion, he turned face. He also debuted on SmackDown as a babyface.
As a babyface, he hasn’t anything noteworthy apart from winning the United States Championship and the Tag Team Titles. Bobby Roode’s character is slowly becoming stale and is in need of a desperate heel turn. Considering the fact that he is a natural born heel, more fans could get behind him which could also lead to a main event push.
Given the fact that Roode is currently teaming with Chad Gable, he would first have to sever ties with his partner since Chad may not be suited to play a heel. Roode’s heel turn could be tricky, but if pulled off properly, it could lead to some amazing storylines.
