As an WWE fan, we have witnessed heel and babyface turns of our favorite superstars. A current WWE Superstar is excited to go from heel to babyface.  Who’s this WWE Superstar you ask?

Babyface turn

WWE Champion Jinder Mahal recently spoke with ESPN about the development of his character. While in the interview he stated, he couldn’t wait to turn babyface. His current run with the WWE, has made him a Anti-American heel. Mahal is the leader in the WWE for the Indian Market.  There was also a recent visit to India for Mahal to promote the WWE’s return in December, which happens to be a Raw branded live event.

Jinder Mahal’s Future

Mahal has the popularity of the fans, in India; and as a result of maybe receiving United States support as well if he changes to face. Mahal quoted:

I am interested in seeing what other characters, I could play. The evolution of WWE Character is that things change, and I can’t wait to have a babyface character.

On this week’s Smackdown Live, WWE Champion Jinder Mahal challenged WWE Universal Brock Lesnar;  for a champion vs champion match at Survivor Series. Brock Lesnar will appear on next weeks Monday Night Raw, and give us the answer for the challenge.

Survivor Series will be on Novemeber 19th at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

Writer’s Thoughts

A Jinder Mahal face turn? That will be interesting. Why do we need a baby face?  Because a face turn is always good for business. We also love watching them as well, or ; however can see them coming a mile away. I think a face turn for Mahal, will indeed make him on good terms with USA. I clearly don’t see myself rushing out to buy his merchandise, but he still with have my respect. The current WWE Champion has my respect because he appears on Smackdown Live every Tuesday. Brock Lesnar, well we are sometimes lucky; to see him maybe six times a year. What do you think the future of Jinder Mahal is? Will the face turn be a good outcome? Will Brock accept Jinder’s challenge? Feel free to comment below and let us know what you think?
