Fandango
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.

Antonio Cesaro
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.

Antonio Cesaro
"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
Antonio Cesaro
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
Roman Reigns
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
Batista
A video from Monday Night Raw of the Shield rescuing new WWE champion Daniel Bryan from Triple H, Kane, Randy Orton and Batista. This is essentially the face turn of Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins.
April 11, 2014
Brock Lesnar
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
Antonio Cesaro
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. Afterwards, Cesaro did a face turn after Swagger attempted to attack him for being pinned.
April 6, 2014
Bully Ray
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
Dean Ambrose
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.

Bully Ray
To generate even further heat, Rockstar Spud will be hosting a special tribute segment to Dixie Carter on Impact Wrestling this week. The story line is that she has lost control of her company to MVP, whose team was victorious at TNA Lockdown 2014 thanks to the help of Bully Ray, who pulled off a surprising face turn that evening.
March 13, 2014
Bully Ray
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
CM Punk
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
Antonio Cesaro
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
Antonio Cesaro
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
Antonio Cesaro
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
Antonio Cesaro
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
Antonio Cesaro

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.

December 11, 2013
Drew McIntyre

Since the show was in Scotland, Drew McIntyre worked as a baby face when he teamed with Heath Slater against the Usos.

Usually, they're doing shows in separate city, but this time, event coordinators decided to bring in both WWE legends during the same weekend. They're working different days, though.
March 14, 2014
Daniel Bryan
While management has yet to finalize their match at Wrestlemania 30, there are those that believe that WWE will be bringing in Shawn Michaels to join the story line between Daniel Bryan and Triple H. The former world heavyweight champion has a connection with both performer, and it would add another interesting wrinkle to the program.

Shawn Michaels
"I was thrilled about it, again, it's certainly for me much like all of my career. There wasn't a lot of planning, a lot of thought, the majority of what I did in my career was reactionary, because that's when for me I hit the truest and most honest emotion out of myself. I think everybody in this industry loves to do everything in hindsight, and in hindsight everybody's a genius, but the immediate reaction is what I go on. There was no planning that Undertaker would be the guy to end, none of those things were thought about. All of those things fell into place and I felt good about them and that's what I based it on. I didn't give it a lot of thought, it's sort of like when you know something's right you know it's right and that's how it was done." - Shawn Michaels on being forced to retire by Undertaker
February 16, 2014
Bret Hart
"I want to prove that I am the best NXT has to offer. I want to prove that to Triple H, Shawn Michaels and my boyhood hero, Bret Hart, who will be in attendance that night. I want to make John Cena, the guy at the top of our industry, see that Sami Zayn is going to be the guy out of NXT to keep your eye on. I want to prove it to the fans who've believed in me all along. I want to prove to the people that never believed that I even belonged here, just how wrong they are. Above all else, I not only want to prove it to Cesaro, I need to prove it to myself." - Sami Zayn talks about wanting to be the next big WWE star
February 16, 2014

Michaels is still expected to be a part of the event, however.
February 14, 2014
