Re: What makes people think Reigns will be any better as a heel?
All the best guys become successful babyfaces after a spell as a main event heel. Being a heel let's you bring out more of a personality. He's definitely not babyface material at the moment, so is there any other alternative?
Vince McMahon wants him to be the top babyface right? So turn the guy heel. History has dictated (Austin, Rock, Foley, Undertaker, Batista, Cena, the list goes on) that if you're a charismatic, talented worker - with the correct booking (Triple H I'm looking at you) - who can draw heat, eventually the fans will get on your side. The crowd will gel with him eventually and that's when you turn him face and attach the rocket to his back to the top. Just don't mess with his character (unfortunately this is where it all seems to go wrong these days).
