In the midst of one of the best heel runs in history, here’s a big question : could Roman Reigns turn face?

Yes, seriously.

It seems so preposterous to even pose that question, all things considered.

Remember as The Shield ended it’s big run, so many fans loved Ambrose and Rollins, but it was Roman Reigns who was shoved down our throats as a top face.

And…so many fans weren’t into it.

Finally, after plenty of fans wanting to see it, Reigns turned heel during the Thunderdome era of WWE.

What has followed has been, quite simply, historic.

On the June 2nd edition of SmackDown, WWE celebrated his 1000 days and counting as champion. It’s been a great run, and it’s been as a heel.

Big Question : Could Roman Reigns Turn Face?

The question was broached by the Wrestling Observer.

To be fair, this was actually less a question, and more a belief that it is not if, just a matter of when.

Per Meltzer, by the time the Reigns arc winds down, Roman will indeed turn into an epic super babyface.

Not because he needs to be, but because when you look at so many of the all-time greats…they all eventually gave up their heel ways and turned face.

So…that seems to be in his future.

On one hand…I don’t like it.

But…on the other hand…it makes sense.

I don’t like it, because history. 1000+ days as the top heel and top champion and all that.

But I get it, because think of those legends that Reigns is being compared to?

Austin…Hogan…The Rock…they all did stints as heels, but wound down their careers as faces.

And, if we are to believe the word of Mr. Meltzer, at some point in the future, Roman Reigns will too.

As we saw on this most recent SmackDown, there are still plenty of twists and turns left for The Bloodline…so we know he could turn face…but probably not for a bit.
