Former WWE superstar Marty Jannetty once stated in a promo, "When we're good, we're very good, but when we're bad, we're better." While faces normally generate cheers, the heels can generate both cheers and jeers nowadays. A heel turn is done because the characters need to be livened up, either because of the reaction they are receiving from the audience, or because what they say or do isn't resonating with the crowd. In other cases, wrestlers that are sick and tired of how they are being treated by the audience aren't strangers to changing things up.
So while these examples try to shed light on how heel turns could happen, other instances may include wrestlers that are willing to do anything they need to do in order to succeed. While we wish that all of these suggested wrestlers would turn to the dark side, we aren't sure whether or not it will actually happen. In terms of those mentioned, it would be a welcome change in direction, because they've each appeared to hit a roadblock as faces, and it's time to see them add complexity to their characters by swerving the WWE universe.
Here are 10 wrestlers WWE needs to turn heel ASAP:
9 T10. The Usos
8 Sin Cara
7 Zack Ryder
6 Sasha Banks
5 Austin Aries
4 Randy Orton
3 Dolph Ziggler
2 John Cena
1 Roman Reigns
He's unquestionably the elephant in the room; no matter what he says or does, Roman Reigns is generally met with jeers. Regardless of whether he keeps his promos short or works a solid match while telling a story along the way, he gets booed. Not because he's the good guy, not because he's the bad guy, but because he is the guy. While younger audiences seem to gravitate toward him because of his look and attitude, it appears once again that the older demographic of the WWE universe want to see something different. If he is going to be a heel, allow the character to tell those that come down on him exactly what he thinks of them. Could a deal with Mr. McMahon ensure a heel turn? He deserves better, but better appears to mean giving fans a reason to hate him.
