Your predicted face & heel turns in 2013
It wouldn't be a WWE year without a lot of drastic changes in wrestlers personalities. So, who do you think will be getting switched to the light or dark side this year? This isn't who you want to see turn, otherwise there'd just be a bunch of "John Cena cuz he's so stale" comments. It's who you expect and why. Here's mine:
The big face turn of the year goes to CM Punk who also got the big heel turn last year. I'm expecting this will be done to keep Punk in the higher card with more people work with, one being my prediction for this years big heel turn. As well as that, there might be a big Lesnar/Punk feud for Heyman's affections at some point, and I can't see Lesnar being swung as the good guy against Punk.
Other face turns I'm going to throw out include Mark Henry who's been pretty popular with crowds despite his monsterous heel character. I think they'll make the switch this year and it might be successful. Also, Big E Langston has been doing impressive babyface work over on NXT, and they might replicate it during his time on the main roster, I'm thinking it's countdown until Langston abandons Ziggler. Another NXT faithful Seth Rollins may turn if The Shield collapses, as I can see a big good guy future in him. Cody Rhodes could also have a run on the good side.
The big heel turn of the year goes to Randy Orton who, despite popularity, just doesn't seem at home on the good side. John Cena seems naturally comfortable with being good just like Orton does with being bad. I'm expecting a revitalised run for Orton as a heel.
I reckon we'll see yet another heel turn from Kane possibly feuding with his former tag mate Daniel Bryan. Things haven't been working out especially well for The Miz so we could see him returning to his former ways. For the purposes of Langston's face turn, we could see Ryback making the leap to the dark side.
