Place of Birth
Since his popularity has been growing by the day, there are actually talks backstage in WWE of doing a face turn with Bray Wyatt. Rumors have it that some in the company believe that he can reach his full main event potential by being a fan favorite. The belief is that WWE will not be pulling the trigger on this character change until they decide to turn Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins back into heels.

Even though her character was dumped by Fandango in the story line, do not expect a face turn for Summer Rae. The blonde diva will be working as a heel when she returns to WWE after filming her parts in the upcoming Marine sequel. Summer will also be utilized more as a wrestler this time around as opposed to being a side character.

The backstage gimmick for Antonio Cesaro is that WWE will try to get the fans to beg for a face turn. Management is still secretly passing out Cesaro Section signs to the fans at the live events. The hope is that fans will be clamoring heavily for him to leave Paul Heyman and finally become a good guy. If that works, then he can get his big match against Brock Lesnar in about a year.
April 17, 2014
"Not sure why as a fan I should dislike Cesaro and it can't be simply because he's aligned himself with Paul Heyman. Cesaro simply outwrestles people and is damned impressive while doing it. Some of Cesaro's matches down in NXT the last year or so were better than anyone on RAW was having at the time." - Jim Ross thinks Antonio Cesaro should do a face turn
April 15, 2014
Since he split with Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter, many fans are under the impression that Antonio Cesaro is doing a face turn. WWE is currently planning on keeping him a heel, as Paul Heyman functions a lot better in that role. Cesaro worked as a heel against Dolph Ziggler at a live event in Texas over the weekend. WWE might be persuaded to change their minds down the line because of his growing popularity, however.
April 13, 2014
While he has lost a bit of momentum since Royal Rumble 2014, there are still plans in WWE to give Roman Reigns a big push. Since the Shield pulled a face turn recently, there are talks of elevating Reigns to the point where he can be booked in a match against Triple H at Summerslam 2014. The hope there is that HHH can make him into a star by giving him a memorable match.
April 12, 2014
While the audience was quite jovial towards him during Monday Night Raw, there are no plans in place for WWE to do a face turn for Brock Lesnar, as the company feels that he is much more of a draw as a dominant heel. The fans were basically cheering for the tremendous promo that Paul Heyman was cutting about the end of the Undertaker streak.
April 10, 2014
In an action filled Wrestlemania 30 kickoff match, Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso retained the WWE tag team championship by defeating Diego, Fernando, Curtis Axel, Ryback, Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro in a fatal four way elimination tag team bout.

April 6, 2014
When he made his face turn at TNA Lockdown 2014, a lot of fans were confused, as Bully Ray was such an effective heel. Well, there is actually logic behind the move, as the company is hoping for Bully Ray to be a key marketing asset when Impact Wrestling is taped in New York City, where the performer is from. TNA needs a big crowd at these shows.
March 21, 2014
While a lot of fans are under the assumption that Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins are now good guys, their face turn is actually temporary. It is only designed to get them a match against Kane and two mystery partners at Wrestlemania 30. The long term plan is for Ambrose and Rollins to remain as heels, while Reigns becomes a big face.

March 13, 2014
Apparently, the cryptic message that Bully Ray posted on Twitter about the Chicago audience during Monday Night Raw convincing him to make a career change was about his own face turn that took place at TNA Lockdown 2014. Many were under the belief that it was a sign that he was headed back to WWE for one last stint.
March 12, 2014
With CM Punk no longer with the company, the plan moving forward for WWE is to push John Cena and Daniel Bryan as the top two baby faces. No word yet on which one of them will be the top guy or the champion. Some were under the impression that Roman Reigns would be elevated into one of the top two spots once he does his face turn and leaves Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins behind.
March 6, 2014
In order to kick start his big push, there are talks backstage in WWE of putting the Intercontinental Championship on Antonio Cesaro at Wrestlemania 30, where he is rumored to be working a triple threat match against Big E Langston and Jack Swagger. A much anticipated face turn is also supposed to help get things going as well.
March 5, 2014
Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro were penciled in for a match against one another at Wrestlemania 30, but it now appears that WWE could be turning that into a triple threat match, so that Big E Langston can be given a spot on the pay per view. The Intercontinental Championship could be on the line, and a Cesaro face turn is still expected to take place.
March 4, 2014
The previously rumored baby face turn for Antonio Cesaro apparently is still on the table, as WWE tested things out with the live audience last night after Monday Night Raw went off the air. Cesaro joined Sheamus, Daniel Bryan and John Cena in fighting off Dean Ambrose in the ring, doing the spot where everyone hits their signature move on the heel.
February 18, 2014
WWE is planting the seeds for an eventual split between Antonio Cesaro and Jack Swagger, and many have been speculating as to what the future holds for their manager Zeb Colter. Since he is so good at being a heel, his character will side with whomever does not make a face turn. As of right now, it appears that he will be staying with Swagger.
February 13, 2014
There are still plans within WWE to turn Antonio Cesaro into a baby face. It was supposed to have happened already, but the creative department simply has not found the time nor a suitable story to break him away from Zeb Colter and Jack Swagger.
