WWE Heel and Face Turns in 2021 List of Superstars Who Turned Babyface or Heel This Year | Smark Out Moment

This list will keep track of all the official babyface turns and heel turns that happen in WWE for the year 2021.

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 quarterly around 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.

Also, sometimes, I update the heel and face index, but not as often as the updates you see below.

  • Billie Kay is all over the place. She's a sympathetic babyface-esque character who isn't fully one way or the other. Tweener for the start of 2021. We'll see where she ends up down the line.
  • Tamina is a heel again as she's been teaming more with Natalya.
  • PENDING: Apollo Crews is looking more and more like a heel after his match with Big E and then chatting it up with Roman Reigns
  • PENDING: Isaiah "Swerve" Scott has been slowly leaning toward a heel turn but hasn't gone past the point of no return.
  • PENDING: Sheamus continues to be a tweener in a lot of ways. It's hard to tell if he'll stick to babyface or heel any particular week.
  • PENDING: Shinsuke Nakamura (and maybe Cesaro by extension) could be turning face after Nakamura's interactions with Jey Uso and shaking Daniel Bryan's hand in the gauntlet match. No confirmation of this yet, though. 
  • PENDING: Timothy Thatcher may be turning babyface to team with Tommaso Ciampa.
