Hey Everyone. DK Wrestling Savior here...*I really need a new name*. I wanted to follow up on my previous blog regarding Face and Heel turns. I did get a lot of positive comments regarding it but I missed a segment and I wanted to add it here.
First, I want to say that while I did list the 5 best ways to become heel, one of those reasons were not being a baby or a weasel like Daniel Bryan or Christian. While it is a successful way to turn heel and get the fans against you, I feel it is really a cop out way to go.
Contrary to my last blog, where I listed some wrestlers who would benefit from a turn either Heel or Face. Here, I'm going to list those who have recently made a turn, and maybe shouldn't have.
Daniel Bryan - Heel Turn
I don't know how good of a move this really was. His character is weak with the constant yelling of "Yes" and "World Heavyweight Champion". He's sort of being buried by not being much of a credible champion. This heel turn is a lot like Christian's with his "One More Match" and not being able to beat anyone legit. It was a big deal when Daniel won the title and they had the celebration with him, Punk, and Ryder on Raw. I don't see what the heel turn really did for him, besides make his championship run being pretty much a joke.
R-Truth - Face Turn
I can see where this made sense from a "Little Jimmy" being funny and getting popular standpoint, and it does work, but I have been an advocate of The Miz and R Truth being paired up. I enjoyed their feud with HHH and things were pretty chaotic with them coming out of the crowd in hoodies and attacking whoever they could get their hands on. R Truth is face now, and while I still find him comedic, I don't see how he will be anything more than a filler in the Elimination Chamber and MITB at Wrestlemania...if there is one. Then after what, where would a face R Truth fit in?
Kane - Heel Turn
I get it. They needed to kill time so Rocky could prance around in front of a green screen, and call himself an actor. They needed a filler because The Rock is going to do the bare minimum to build this match up. And it was a smart move to do this heel turn, but what happens afterwards? Who knows what's going to happen with Kane after this Sunday? There's rumors of a match with him and Marc Henry at Wrestlemania. There's rumors of him being a part of MITB. Either way, it looks like it's back to the burial grounds, unless they continue to use him to kill time...I mean fuel the feud between Rock and Cena, on the days of Rock's absence. I like the feud, but it's so obvious why it's even going on. It'll be hard to turn Kane face again after this, so we'll see what happens. If he fights Henry, who will be the face?
Well these are the most relevant ones. The rest that come to mind are a bit outdated. I would do one on TNA except TNA has a habit of turning their champion heel as soon as they win.
Thanks for reading, I hope everyone has a great rest of the week. I won't be posting until after Raw on Monday but I'm looking forward to reading some good stuff in the next few days. Take care everyone.
