Could one of these guys turn heel?

What's the story?

On the most recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discusses the final addition to Team Raw, Jason Jordan. Meltzer believes that a heel turn is in the works for Jordan at Survivor Series on November 19th.

In case you didn't know...

This would be the first heel turn for Jordan in his career. Before American Alpha, Jordan was in a mildly successful tag team in NXT with the popular Tye Dillinger. The team started in the middle of 2014 but would break up in February of 2015 when Jordan turned heel on Dillinger.

The heart of the matter...

Meltzer believes that the heel turn by Jordan will cost Team Raw the match, and potentially cost his "father" Kurt Angle his General Manager job on Raw. There was speculation a while back that the storyline between Jordan and Angle would end with a heel turn where Jordan states that he never really was the son of Kurt's and it was an elaborate plan by Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.

As Sportskeeda reported earlier in the week, Roman Reigns will return to WWE television with this Monday's edition of Raw. As long as Reigns doesn't replace Jordan in the match, Meltzer believes the turn is in place.

At this point, it doesn't seem like Reigns would be added to Team Raw, but will rejoin his brothers in The Shield to take on The New Day after they cost Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins the WWE Raw Tag Team Championships on Raw this week.

What's next?

The go-home show for Survivor Series is what's next for the Raw brand. Raw will take place at the Phillips Center in Atlanta, Georgia as the two brands prepare to clash in Houston on November 19th.

Author's take...

Unfortunately, it was a failed experiment having Jason Jordan be the biological son of Kurt Angle. I think the heel turn needs to happen sooner than later as they are not going anywhere with the way the story has played out to this point.

I believe the better story is for Team Raw to lose, and having Jordan turn heel on Angle adds to that story, as well as the uncertainty of Angle's job as General Manager going forward.
