Theres rarely anything more exciting, more interesting or more shocking in the wrestling world than a good TURN. whether it be FACE or HEEL, when wrestlers turn, its almost ALWAYS big news. so i thought id start this topic to find out who u readers would want to see TURN FACE or HEEL in the world of Pro Wrestling.

Just post a Wrestler and what u would wanna see him/her turn to, HEEL or FACE or watever. if u want, u could also post why. a little discussion about each other's picks is also welcome, so dont be afraid to post ur opinions.

it should be interesting to read some of these and ill be looking forward to them all(if this topic catches on...).

ill post 1st...

i said this before in the predictions thread, and i guess ill say it again to get this thread going... i predict Jericho is gonna turn face. not only do i predict it, i also want to see it! and i hope to see it happen before Wrestlemania next year.

from wat happened at the last RAW when Jericho got punted in the head, it looks as though he'll be taking some time off for watever reasons there may be. if or when he comes back to the ring, i think it would be a nice change to see him as a face. dont get me wrong, i LOVE him as a heel. its just that i dont see many top tier faces on RAW except for Orton (whos really just a psycho anti-face that all the chicks dig) and Cena (who nobody likes except for kids). all the other Main Eventers are heels - Edge, Sheamus, Nexus, and Jericho.

idk... that might be a weak reason for wanting Jericho to turn face, but i still think it should happen. even if its only for a lil while, kinna like wat Edge did when he returned at The Royal Rumble.

wat do u guys think? let me know! and also post ur picks for a Heel or Face Turn!

Heh good call it was one I thought about talking about. I do now concur on Jericho coming back face considering his reaction now by fans of late before being "punted off" for now, and well put how good he is doing either but it's about current environment for someone to be one way or another.

You know my 1st choice stems from the PPV HIAC coming up. John Cena's done all he can do as face with multiple title holds, helping push the merchandise and kids interest in a PG WWE. But like Hogan and Rock before him, there comes a time a super babyface is turned on by fans that it's natural to heel turn him. HIAC presents the perfect time for it: Nexus beats him and makes him join. He can start reluctant but as everyone is human in the end, the "Dark Side" can tempt him little by little from cheating to win to how the power can corrupt. He could then turn fully while in Nexus, find out who the real leader was, or leave it once it splits or not, but still be tempted to start going heel. It might hurt the sales of his stuff in the start but done right it can help his career and add a needed heel too on RAW if say Jericho is face on return. Also this helps long term if he feuds Orton ever again, or even some Mania talk:



Yes folks do get on the posts here and do voice in the right ones on topic!

ok... before i post who i wanna see turn, i have something to ask u readers out there... and i KNOW there are readers out there...
i just saw the reply counter, and it read 2. meaning it counted my own post and kwans above this one. and after i post right now, it will read 3. but i also saw the view counter that read 123. 123 VIEWS!!!

123 views, yet only 3 replies.

that means this thread is interesting enough for u readers to look at, but either not interesting enough for u guys to post ur own replies or u readers are too chickenshit to write anything... C'MON PEOPLE!!! 123 views but only 3 replies is just pathetic!!! post something PLEASE! i know this thread isnt a total failure cuz there are at most 123 ppl out there, including kwan and myself, who are checking out this thread. but that also means there may be 121 ppl who are too shy to post. unless theres just one person out there viewing this thread 121 times - if so, get a life, man...

post in the damn thread, please. its a lot more interesting if u post ur opinions too...

enough of that rant, on to my turn pick...
i was running over scenarios with my kid while watching the Smackdown Premiere on SyFy earlier and one that i came up with is this: what if John Cena loses at Hell In A Cell and joins the Nexus... but instead of Cena turning heel, the Nexus turns FACE! BWAAHAHAHAH!!! i could imagine Cena's over-righteous, goody-2-shoes, boy scout attitude INFECTING the Nexus with goodness and turning them all into fan favorite FACES!!! wouldnt that be a twist? i can see it all now...

half the ppl are expecting Cena to win and Nexus will disband(which is unlikely right now cuz my kid pointed out to me all the NEW Nexus merchandise that just became available on WWEshop.com, so that says to me that theyre not breaking up just yet. i dont think theyd put out brand new merch for a stable thats about to break up). the other half or the ppl are expecting Nexus to win and Cena turns heel. but i wanna see Cena join the Nexus and turn them all FACE.

After seeing bleach today, it got me thinking;
Hornswoggle needs a heel turn too.
I'd love to see it used as a big distraction to the big show and turn on him.
Then, if big show finally gets his hands on hornswoggle, he can do some awesome dark stuff himself

Umm i don;t think Hornswoggle would work as a heel particuly in the current PG based WWE and really do we need a heel Hornswoggle around.

Thinking roud as to who i'd turn heel .I'd look at somone like John Morrison who seems tpo be a bit limited in being a face conversly perhaps Dolph Ziggler might turn face as the whole love triangle thing seems to be building on Smackdown.

It stems from me being sick of him altogether, making him a heel will get him off of tv in no time

Hmm not sure about simply handing a title or even laying down like we saw with Otunga for the tag belts to Slater and Gabriel (ever since the 1 finger of doom pin by Hogan on Nash that type of finish just disgusts me now as a fan - it's as if a sports team laid down for another...oh wait that's the Dallas Cowboys... ). I do want him heel too but make it seem natural or somewhat planned well. Maybe he was masterminding something with Wade then screws Orton. The other thing that worries me is we're at a Survivor Series, and being from Canada that's never a good case to see a screwjob as we saw with Bret/HBK/Vince of course then the equally bad PPV where CM Punk did it to Taker with help from Teddy Long and referee Armstrong when they still named refs (who's no longer with the company which shows how much that worked). It might work but again, Survivor Series screwjobs no longer least up here in Canada (yes it's part of us being "Bizarroworld" but I'm at a point that I find WWE cares nothing for Canadian or recent British fans anymore prefering to upset and cheese them off instead for their little sad joys) work.

An aside is someone suggesting to me that maybe all this seemingly useless at first Santino/Koslov/Sheamus/John Morrison angle that's comedy reducing their star power might for once have a use long term: a Sheamus face turn and Morrison heel turn. No one sees why Morrison should keep saving Santino and he was WAY better as a heel with that persona like when he and Miz had the Dirt Sheet. Yes his moves are more face but look at Justin Gabriel and to a lesser extent TNA's AJ Styles on how it can work somewhat. Sheamus meanwhile as a face might work too if to get him back up the card.

i didnt literally mean i wanted to see Cena actually hand over the belt to Barrett, i just meant that as a figure of speech. but i really do wanna see Cena betray all his fans, betray his own morals, and betray the WWE by doing something underhanded in order to keep his career intact by helping Barrett win the Title. thats wat i originally meant by "hand the WWE Title over"...

yah, the "Fingerpoke of Doom" was pretty bad, but the case of Otunga and Tag Titles differ from the "Fingerpoke" cuz Otunga disagreed with that move. and i disagree with that move as well. i think Otunga and Cena with the Tag Titles woulda been more interesting to see. cuz look now, Slater and Gabriel aint doing sh!t with the belts...

AHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Gotcha all clear!

And yes in true Starscream fashion Otunga played the second in command jealousy and unwant very well. As for the belts, Lance Storm spoke on how it is today:

"I’ll always go with stuff from when I was a fan, so I prefer back when the Hart Foundation and the British Bulldogs were around add to them team like the Rockers, the Fabulous Rougeaus, and the Brain Busters and you’ve got some pretty awesome tag team matches.

I doubt they will ever get rid of the tag titles. At there worst they are a way to give top guys something to do when they have nothing else for them. I would not call what WWE has now a tag team division. They have tag team titles and a couple of tag teams but that’s about it. It’s a shame but that is the way it goes."

From his Q and A at http://www.stormwrestling.com/111110.html which is always a good generally honest read on stuff asked by fans.

Oops correct didn't give the Face or Heel talk along with the aside about tags. Man busy week on my end I keep forgetting crud.

As far as the heel turn then for Cena I did have another thought when you posted your reply. Maybe Cena will count the 3 for Wade, get freed and stay face, but slowly see the locker room fully turn on him as R. Truth predicted (andy1 noted to me it wouldn't be a surprise if Truth turned heel actually the way he's acted towards Cena, and I sure think he's not acted as a friend so far) and as Orton figures once he goes after Cena for costing him the belt. Maybe then once he sees the locker room turn on him he'll turn his back on them blaming them for turning him heel/bad. It might work and then Nexus can be moved onto a different opponent to maybe help, like umm Danielson who you'd think they'd have wanted to get back at by now.
