WWE: 5 WWE superstars who need to change ring-gear and can turn heel in 2021
his year, Roman Reigns and Randy Orton evolved as top heels in the industry. Next year, Someone may hit this chance. Well, We are listing 5 superstars, currently, Babyface, who may turn heel next year.
Probably they may get a major push too.
For three-fourths of this year, Sheamus remained heel but his gimmick faded when he joined WWE World Champion Drew McIntyre.
At the start of this year, Sheamus returned from injury and was involved in various feuds including rivalry with Shorty G, Matt Riddle, and Big E. These were just footnotes in Sheamus’ transformation.
At the 2020 WWE Draft, Sheamus joined Monday Night Raw, and his greatness was poured when he joined his best friend Drew McIntyre. This Scottish Man and Irish Man are continuing to dominate Monday nights by sweeping the dirt in the roster.
Drew McIntyre and Sheamus collectively overcame the trouble of AJ Styles, Miz, and Morrison but 2021 may not be similar to this year. Either Sheamus may betray Drew McIntyre or the worse may happen.
WWE won’t let Drew McIntyre turn heel as he’s the biggest box office of Monday Night Raw. So, We may expect the return of Sinister Sheamus.
If you aren’t an active viewer of NXT, You must definitely know about Monstrous Lee.
Keith Lee defeated Roderick Strong on the January 22 episode of NXT to win the NXT North American Championship. In July, On the main event of NXT Great American Bash Night 2, Keith Lee defeated then NXT Champion Adam Cole to become a double champion.
In the same month, Keith Lee voluntarily relinquished the North American Championship to give opportunities to other people of NXT, and soon, he lost to Karrion Kross at NXT TakeOver XXX. That was his final fight in NXT.
At Raw following SummerSlam, Keith Lee joined Monday Night Raw and was involved in various feuds with Randy Orton, Braun Strowman. He also led Team Raw to victory at Survivor Series.
Currently, Keith Lee is having issues with Sheamus, and like Sheamus, Keith Lee may also turn villainous next year which would help him develop a name in the main roster.
Things quickly turned in the case of Roman Reigns and USOS.
In January, USOS returned with a new look aided their cousin Roman Reigns from the wrath of King Corbin and Dolph Ziggler.
At Wrestlemania, The Big Dog was scheduled to fight Goldberg. Roman Reigns, however, exited from Wrestlemania due to the ongoing global pandemic. At Wrestlemania, Jimmy Uso suffered an injury, which left Jey Uso single.
In the second half, Roman Reigns and Jey Uso, who were babyfaces at the start of the year, turned into the best heels of 2020. After facing Roman Reigns in an I Quit match, risking his own family, Jey Uso finally acknowledged Roman Reigns as his Tribal Chief.
From time to Time, Jey Uso made his presence felt by helping Roman Reigns eliminate disobedient guys. This bond may take a new form in 2021 when Jimmy Uso would be ready for in-ring action. USOS may work for Roman Reigns in 2021 and pop at the tag team division.
In March, Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford, the Street Profits, captured the Raw tag team titles, and they successfully defended it on every occasion. From Murphy and Rollins to Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode, Street Profits overcame everyone.
Also, During the outbreak of the global pandemic, Street Profits along with Viking Raiders helped maintain the ratings of Monday Night Raw by doing “Anything You Can Do, We Can Do Better” series.
They were also involved in matches with Viking Raiders, and Angel Garza and Andrade. After proving their skills at Monday Night Raw, They were drafted to Friday Night Smackdown at WWE Draft by exchanging tag team titles with New Day.
This long title reign may end in 2021 after they encounter different tag teams on Friday Night Smackdown. We’ve predicted that Shinsuke Nakamura would turn babyface next year. This may somehow affect tag team division.
If Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura become good by chance, We may expect Street Profits to turn their character.
2020 is Sasha Banks’ year.
In June, Sasha Banks and Bayley won the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship by defeating Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross. They successfully defended it on various occasions. At Extreme Rules, Sasha Banks also held the possession of Raw Women’s Championship.
This led Sasha Banks and Bayley to become the first female tag team and the fifth overall in history to hold singles and tag team titles simultaneously. However, The celebration ended too soon at Summerslam.
Sasha Banks also lost the tag team titles to Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler at Payback, which happened just one week after Summerslam. In a rematch, They weren’t successful reclaiming the tag team titles but something unexpected happened that night.
Bayley betrayed Banks which turned Sasha Banks a babyface. At Hell in a Cell, Banks submitted Bayley to win the blue belt for the first time in her career. This character isn’t permanent. In 2021, Someone good may join Friday Night Smackdown and would make Sasha Banks a villain.
