List of WWE Heel and Face Turns for 2016

Posted by Anthony Mango Friday, January 1, 2016
This list will keep track of all the official babyface turns and heel turns that happen in WWE for the year 2016.

At the beginning of this year, I've made some predictions for who I think will end up turning face or heel at some point. I won't be altering these predictions at all throughout the entire year, so it'll be interesting to see who I'm right and wrong about. Anybody who I'm right about, I'll strikethrough.

  • Charlotte turned heel on Raw (1/4/2016)
  • Curtis Axel turned heel on Raw (1/4/2016)
  • Big Show has seemingly been working as a babyface since January 4th
  • Paige seems to have returned as a babyface since January 18th
  • Brie Bella appears to now be a babyface as of February 1st
  • The Dudley Boyz turned heel on Raw (2/8/2016)
  • Ryback turned heel on Raw (2/22/2016)
  • Sasha Banks started working as a babyface for Fastlane
  • The New Day started working as babyfaces to feud with The League of Nations around the end of February
  • Chris Jericho turned heel on Raw (3/7/2016)
  • The Wyatt Family possibly turned face on Raw (4/4/2016) but this may be jumping the gun

  • AJ Styles turned heel on Raw (5/30/2016) 
  • Natalya turned heel at Money in the Bank (6/19/2016)

  • Titus O'Neil most likely turned heel on Raw (8/1/2016)
  • The Dudley Boyz seem to have turned face on Raw (8/22/2016)
  • Nikki Bella returned at SummerSlam as a heel, kind of, yet seems to be a babyface now that...
  • Carmella turned heel on SmackDown (8/23/2016)
  • Heath Slater turned babyface after teaming with Rhyno on SmackDown (8/23/2016)
