Batista
"They told me that I was going to come back and be this huge babyface. I said, 'no, it's not going to work.' They said, 'no way, they're dying for you to come back.' I said, 'that's going to last two minutes, just watch.' And sure enough it did." - Batista discusses heel turn

Kofi Kingston
"I've been clamoring at that for a while now, but the situation has to be right and the timing has to be right; everything has to be right. I wouldn't want to just do it for the sake of doing it because you might get lost in the shuffle that way. If the situation was right, it would give me a chance to do something completely different and show people a side of me they have never seen before, which I think would be great and I think would be fun." - Kofi Kingston wants heel turn
March 20, 2014
Christy Hemme
There are some talks backstage that Christy Hemme could be doing a heel turn and aligning with Sam Shaw at TNA Lockdown 2014 during his match against Mr Anderson. That would provide a bit of a shock factor to the story. However, there are also a lot of people pushing against that, as they feel that Shaw can be used to terrorize the other Knockouts as well.
March 9, 2014
Jim Ross
During his podcast interview with Jim Ross, the topic of John Cena doing a heel turn was brought up with Steve Austin. The former WWE star was adamant that the move should not happen. Austin pointed out that his own heel turn was a disaster because it ruined his merchandise sales. He feels that the same would happen if Cena were to make the turn.
March 6, 2014
Batista
There were plans backstage at the last Monday Night Raw to turn Batista into a heel by having Randy Orton playing with the mind of his former Evolution teammate. WWE opted against doing that during the show, so they went with a watered down version of the heel turn on Smackdown to test out the reaction from the audience.
March 2, 2014
Batista
There was a WWE NXT taping this week, and fans at the event voiced their displeasure with Batista, even though the performer was not on location. They cheered on Mason Ryan, stating that he was better than Batista. Then, they mocked Bo Dallas, chanting that he was worse than Batista. This should help expedite that heel turn a bit.
March 1, 2014
Batista
There are talks backstage that this potential match between Daniel Bryan and Triple H could simply be a ruse for Wrestlemania 30, as some feel that Bryan will eventually be moved into the main event match for the WWE Championship. Management wants to rush the heel turn for Batista because the fans have simply turned on him.
February 28, 2014
Darren Young
While many are under the assumption that Titus ONeil is the one that will be receiving the push since he was the one that pulled the heel turn, the rumors of Darren Young being pushed is gaining some steam, as the latter was given the victory over the former at a live event in Oakland. At this point, the match appears unlikely to make it on the Elimination Chamber 2014 main card.
February 8, 2014
Cody Rhodes
Since he is still scheduled to do a story line against Cody Rhodes, the belief is that Goldust will be the one doing the heel turn. The veteran performer is signed with WWE until the summer, so the story line could very well extend past their rumored match at Wrestlemania 30.
February 7, 2014
Titus ONeil

Last night, WWE wanted to push the heel turn by Titus ONeil, so they gave him a match. Since someone was needed to put him over, officials backstage went with Zack Ryder, who has not worked a televised match on Monday Night Raw since October of last year.

February 4, 2014
Brutus Magnus

Roddy Piper

January 15, 2014
Steve Austin

"Worst call I've ever made other than refusing to job to Brock Lesnar at Atlanta. But, you know, that was my idea. Vince always likes to do something big at Wrestlemania. He didn't have anything big planned. So, me being the rocket scientist that I am, I figured okay. You're a hot babyface, and if you turn heel, you're a hot ass heel to draw money like that. Or vice versa. By and large that is true for the most part if the time is right to turn. Well clearly the time wasn't right for me to turn. It was like everybody loved John Wayne for what he stood for and so he did not ever have to be a bad guy in his movies. He never was. People didn't want to hate me. Me, because I always loved working heel more than a babyface. Thought it was going to be a chance for me to have fun, go back to working heel, doing what I loved to do and with that being said, I love working babyface too. Obviously it's where I made my money, but I like working heel. I like being a piece of trash. I like talking trash. I like cheating. That was my style of wrestling. Man, I did a lot of that as a Stone Cold babyface. So it was a bad idea, but Vince bought into it with me."

January 6, 2014

December 7, 2013
Brodus Clay

While many fans are under the impression that it is a permanent thing, WWE might not be doing a permanent heel turn with Brodus Clay. The belief is that this is just to give Xavier Woods something to work with.

Miz

Word going around is that the WWE creative department forgot about his Christmas movie when they decided to turn Miz into a heel.
