WWE Heel and Face Turns in 2022 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 2022.

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.

  • First turn of the year TBD
  • PENDING (circa January 4) - Andre Chase and Bodhi Hayward are giving off more babyface traits as time goes on. They may have transitioned to that internally without a true turn moment. 
  • PENDING (Jan 6) - Amale is a babyface? Stevie Turner is a heel again? Or did I misread that segment on NXT UK?
  • January 10 - Nikki A.S.H. turned heel on Rhea Ripley
