Even after the shocking events of WWE Great Balls of Fire, Roman Reigns continues to coast along the borderlines of good versus evil.
The WWE Universe was punked out once more in hopes of Roman Reigns becoming a heel. After WWE Great Balls of Fire, fans were hyped up and excited about what looked to be a double turn in the conclusion of the Ambulance match. Reigns had lost thanks to Strowman avoiding the spear and soon after Reigns snapped on Strowman in which he ended up getting in the driver’s seat of the ambulance to crash the back of it into a production truck.
The scene itself was surreal and WWE set it up very well. The feud has been incredibly brutal to which neither man would have taken this loss well. Fans saw a new side to Reigns as he completely lost his temper. However, to no surprise, it was anything but. Reigns is still being portrayed as “the guy” despite countless missed opportunities. He is still the babyface of Raw whether fans like it or not.
Everything about Reigns is literally there for him to turn heel. But the company doesn’t want that for him, and it’s just amazing as to why that is. There have been so many opportunities for WWE to pull the trigger on turning Reigns heel. All of those were missed and in turn, the company made some poor booking decisions on Reigns to further sabotage him in the fans’ eyes. At this point, it doesn’t look like that the heel turn will ever happen. One thing is for certain are that no matter what, Reigns gets a reaction. That’s what the company sees.

The only thing that has really changed over the last few months is his cocky attitude. The attitude, the swagger and his accomplishments speak for him. The cockiness works well for him, and that showed on Raw last Monday night. The tension between him, Brock Lesnar, and Samoa Joe could be cut with a knife. If anything else, fans are seeing a more serious Reigns versus the one who cracked jokes often.
Another thought is with a huge opportunity to get The Shield back together, but perhaps, it’s best that Reigns stays in the current lane. Of course, it’s a wild thought but it wouldn’t make sense for Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins to approach a heel Reigns in the next few months if he was full heel. The heel turn would be in vain for the most part.
Regardless of what the plan is for Reigns, hoping for a heel turn is like beating a dead horse. Nothing has stopped the company from continuously pushing the Samoan Superman to greater heights. The fans’ reactions more or less have fallen on deaf ears. Maybe it’s time to let go of the idea of seeing a heel Reigns. Even though it’s what many want, it’s one thing that for right now, the fans just won’t get.
