Ask WNZ: Another Shield Turn?

WWE Championship
With the insinuations starting yet again, just weeks out from Dean Ambrose facing Roman Reigns (and Brock Lesnar) for the chance to face HHH at WrestleMania, it’s worth asking. Could WWE turn either Ambrose or Reigns, having already turned Rollins?

Dorathy Gass:

Anything is possible, but I don’t see a turn, anytime soon, and so close to Wrestlemania for that matter. Would it be awesome if either Roman Reigns or Dean Ambrose turned? Absolutely! It would even make for a pretty incredible WM 32 main event. But looking at Fastlane, and then looking at the proposed Wrestlemania 32 card (with the main event being Triple H versus Reigns, and Lesnar versus Wyatt); a Shield member turning at this point doesn’t make sense. Still, if a turn would to happen, I would say the best candidate as a heel would be Reigns. Ambrose is well over with the audience, and it would make no sense to slow down his momentum. However, this is the WWE, and the brass seem quite smitten on Reigns being the top guy, so anything is possible.

John Deegan:

I don’t know that they will, but I think they absolutely should.

I think if they were going to turn Reigns, they would have by now. Not saying he can’t or won’t ever be a heel again, but not any time soon I think.

And the WrestleMania anticipated card is almost exactly why I say they should. Everyone is banking on Hunter/Reigns and Wyatt/Lesnar. Not a horrible couple matches, but Reigns/Ambrose and Lesnar/Hunter? I think that’s a better card to be booking. I think, if only because people EXPECT Reigns to win, then now is as good a time as any for a major swerve.

I just don’t know that we see an Ambrose turn, or a Reigns turn either. Especially with the injuries, WWE needs the faces they have, and those two are easily among the top babyfaces. So I think they are safe, at least until Summer.

Joseph Lisnow:

Anything can happen in the WWE, especially when the champion goes down with a devastating injury. The WWE has spent too much money and time in Roman Reigns to try a heel turn. Being a face hasn’t gone the way the company wanted, but they need to make Reigns a star or they would have thrown away years of work and major storylines.

As for Ambrose turning heel, such a storyline has been occurring this entire time. Ambrose almost won the WWE Championship in grand style at Survivor Series and Royal Rumble. He was just edged out by Reigns (and little bit by Triple H). The Authority told Ambrose they thought of him before selecting Seth Rollins. The group can still land Ambrose, who is simply frustrated about doing so great and caring for the fans; yet the title is always out of reach. Maybe, Ambrose sells out to The Authority and a major heel for a generation is created.

    Trying to turn Ambrose heel would backfire and make him and the authority face, just for the simple fact that 80% of the wwe universe hates Reigns

      Turning Reigns heel wouldn’t make any sense. With John Cena out of action Reigns is the only wrestler on the roster worthy of the top face spot. The only option WWE has is to turn Ambrose heel.

  • The one and only great one

    Truthfully I don’t think either will turn, and there’s really no reason to turn one of them. When the match for FastLane was set up the WWE was acting like the 2 never faced each other, but they just faced each other a few months ago in the championship tournament with the outcome being both were still faces.

  • MEH

    I’m predicting a Reigns heel turn at Wrestlemania!

    • Joseph Lisnow

      way too soon.

      • MEH

        We’ll see then!

  • Damian Starr

    Reigns heel turn then bring back Rollins as a face

  • RomieRome81

    They should of turned Reigns at the S.S. same way they did with Rock and had Ambrose win the Rumble.

  • Crazy_Victor

    It wouldn’t work. The only one who can turn heel is Ambrose, and if they do that, he will be cheered. So unless you want to have a heel cheered and a face booed, you can’t turn Ambrose for now. To be honest, I expect someone to turn heel on the Raw after Wrestlemania, where Roman will be the champ.

      one classic promo and Ambrose could be an amazing heel.
