WWE Heel Turns & Face Turns in 2023 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 2023.

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.

  • January 2 - Alexa Bliss effectively turned heel on Monday Night Raw by attacking a referee and going overboard against Bianca Belair
  • January 6 - Hit Row turned heel on SmackDown
  • PENDING - Alpha Academy keep being positioned more as babyfaces
  • PENDING - Mustafa Ali may turn heel soon
  • PENDING - Alba Fyre is steadily heading toward a heel turn
  • PENDING - Valentina Feroz is seemingly heading toward a heel turn
  • January 29 - Sami Zayn turned babyface at Royal Rumble
  • PENDING - Jey Uso didn't quite turn babyface, but by leaving instead of attacking Zayn, he puts a potential babyface turn out there as a possibility
  • PENDING - We don't know the status of Chelsea Green, Nia Jax and some others from Royal Rumble; stay tuned for updates as time goes on
