In the past twelve months, from Shinsuke Nakamura to Becky Lynch on SmackDown and from Dean Ambrose to Braun Strowman on Raw has turned heel. So basically 2018 has been a year of bad guys more than of good guys.

Shinsuke turned heel at WrestleMania, Becky turned heel at SummerSlam while Dean and Braun turned heel on Raw. So, be seeing this it can be said that a handful of heel turns has taken place in the past few months, but a handful of more heel turns are in store to happen within next few months.

So, with that being said, let's take a look at those 4 superstars who might betray their partners and fans and turn heel soon. Let's get started without further ado.


#4 Bobby Roode

Back in NXT, when Bobby Roode was working as a heel with his glorious gimmick, he was on the top of the mountain. There he won the NXT title with his same heel-ish attitude. But since getting promoted to the main roster he seems to get lost, probably because he's working as a 'face while his "GLORIOUS" gimmick is meant for a heel.

So, be seeing it maybe Bobby Roode is on his way to turn heel soon as his alliance with Chad Gable is meant to be a short one rather than a longer one. So, I guess the possible way Roode could turn heel is to turn his back on his current team partner, Chad Gable.

That way, Roode will be able to gain the momentum that he has lost on the main roster so far. And turning him heel now will be a great move rather than turning him late, as it's now or never for Bobby Roode.

So, if Roode will turn heel in the near future, I assume we will see it within the next two-three months.

#3 Asuka

Well, Asuka's case is similar just like of Bobby Roode.

Just like him, she did far than better as a heel rather than as a 'face. Because of her heel persona, she was able to set the greatest undefeated streak in WWE history. But, again when she was promoted to the main roster, she started working as a 'face, which probably made the veteran to get lost in the roster full of talent.

But, still, it's not too late for Asuka to get back on the track as she has already booked her place in a triple threat match for the WWE SmackDown Women's Championship next month at TLC PPV.

Although it's clear that she won't be turning heel at TLC PPV, her heel turn is coming sooner rather than later as her involvement in the title match might be the starting of it. So, I guess Asuka's change in character will probably come as early as next year.

#2 Shane McMahon

Shane McMahon has been working as a 'face for a while now. With the same character, Shane-O-Mac has been able to put on some great matches, although he fights like one or two times per year.

According to a rumour, Shane McMahon was supposed to turn heel by now, due to some unknown reason his heel turn is probably set on a pause, for now at least.

But, according to the latest rumour, Shane McMahon is expected to turn heel soon and face one of a current superstar at next year's WrestleMania. So, if Shane will turn heel soon, it's pretty clear that he'll fight a 'face superstar as it doesn't make sense for a heel vs heel match.

I guess, if Shane's heel turn is in store then, it won't be coming one or two months before WrestleMania as Shane will not fight at Royal Rumble, which leaves Fastlane PPV. And there's is no way Shane will fight there.

So, that leaves WrestleMania, which means Shane's heel turn will come probably after Fastlane PPV.

#1 Sasha Banks

Last time Sasha Banks was involved in a women's championship match was this past year at No Mercy PPV, where she came short to win the Raw Women's Title. Since then Sasha Banks has teamed up with Bayley.

Though a few times it was hinted that Sasha will be turning heel soon, the plans for the same never came into fruition due to some unknown reason. But, I guess Sasha will finally turn heel maybe at next year's Royal Rumble PPV or after it.

The possible angle that may help to set up Sasha's heel turn, Bayley eliminating Sasha from the women's Royal Rumble match, due to which Sasha gets frustrated and break this low-key alliance of her and Bayley, "The Boss 'N' Hug Connection" for the better good of their own.


So, here are you four heel turns that might be coming sooner rather than later. Tell me in the comments section below that which of these 4 superstars would you like to see turn heel.
