List of WWE Heel and Face Turns for 2019

Posted by Anthony Mango Tuesday, January 1, 2019
This list will keep track of all the official babyface turns and heel turns that happen in WWE for the year 2019.

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, but I will be adding some revised guesses after the big events, so it'll be interesting to see who I'm right and wrong about. Anybody who I'm right about, I'll strike out.

KEEP IN MIND: When a babyface attacks another babyface, this is almost always a heel turn. When a heel attacks another heel, it doesn't hold the same meaning. Villains turning on villains does not make the beaten down person suddenly a hero, but the actions that come out of that dictate whether a turn happens or not.

  • Bianca Belair is now a babyface for her feud with Shayna Baszler as of NXT 1/16
  • Alexa Bliss may be transitioning to a babyface role (1/21) - I guess not
  • Curt Hawkins will likely be a babyface going forward after Raw 1/21
  • Elias has turned heel again at Royal Rumble
  • There's a chance Dolph Ziggler is a babyface as of Royal Rumble
  • Rusev and by extension Lana turned heel on SmackDown 1/29
  • Dana Brooke teamed with Natalya, then turned on Natalya, so she's been a babyface and a heel in the span of two weeks.
  • So I guess Nikki Cross is a heel now as of Raw 2/4. Or, maybe she isn't and WWE is just testing her out in different roles.
  • Dean Ambrose may have turned face on Raw 2/11.
  • EC3 may be transitioning to a heel turn on Raw 2/11
  • Batista is now a heel as of Raw 2/25
  • Kevin Owens is officially a babyface as of SmackDown 2/26
  • PENDING: That was an awfully heelish thing for Bobby Roode and Chad Gable to do on Raw 3/4, but it might not have been a turn. We'll see...
  • Ronda Rousey turned heel on Raw 3/4
  • Shane McMahon turned heel at Fastlane
  • Dana Brooke is now a babyface again.
  • Noam Dar is now a heel as of NXT UK 3/13
  • Johnny Gargano is back to being a face for sure as of NXT 3/13
