WWE Heel Turns & Face Turns in 2024 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 2024.

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.

  • Leading up to January - Joe Gacy had turned babyface throughout the last month or so, seemingly clarified on January 16th by starting a feud with Dijak.
  • January 5 - Bobby Lashley and The Street Profits are just back to being babyfaces, it seems. This might have been an internal thing prior to this, but WWE's been flippant with them.
  • PENDING - Tatum Paxley keeps acting like a babyface helper for Lyra Valkyria. Whether or not that eventually transforms into a true face turn remains to be seen.
  • PENDING - Roxanne Perez keeps heading toward a heel turn as well
  • January 16 - Oba Femi established himself as a heel by refusing to continue the North American Championship open challenge and badmouthing people, including rejecting Dragon Lee's request for a rematch.
  • January 23 - Josh Briggs turned heel on NXT
  • February 2 - Bayley turned babyface 
  • February 4 - Carmelo Hayes turned heel at NXT Vengeance Day
  • February 8 - The Rock turned heel at the WrestleMania 40 press conference
  • February 9 - Dakota Kai seems to have turned babyface on SmackDown by aligning with Bayley over the rest of Damage CTRL
  • February 9 - Ashante "Thee" Adonis is now in a tag team with Cedric Alexander and both are likely being positioned as babyfaces
  • February 24 - AJ Styles cemented his heel turn by attacking LA Knight inside the Elimination Chamber
