WWE Summerslam 2021 is just a couple of sleeps away and WWE has managed to build this event like no other. The WWE Universe is going to witness some marquee matches with the top Superstars of the company – John Cena, Randy Orton, Roman Reigns, Charlotte Flair and Rey Mysterio, among others, scheduled to be in action.
WWE has gone all out with their efforts to make “The Biggest Party of the Summer”, the biggest WWE event of 2021. Since their last PPV – Money in the Bank, WWE has been unveiling more and more surprises every week to get the fans excited for Summerslam.
But getting the fans excited for the event is just the job half done, delivering an equally impressive event is also a crucial part of the job. Now that WWE has delivered some massive surprises in the build-up to the event, fans will be expecting more of them at the event.
Several Superstars are rumored to make their return at the event, but WWE needs to have more in store to impress the fans. One of these surprises could be a Heel turn for the Superstars. Two of the Superstars who could get the biggest reactions if they turn Heel are: John Cena and Edge.
16-time World Champion John Cena turns Heel at WWE Summerslam 2021?
John Cena has the biggest opportunity to turn Heel. He is undoubtedly one of the biggest draws of the event, but the question is – Can WWE up the ante by turning Cena Heel at the “Biggest Party of the Summer”.
John Cena has been the face of the company for a major part of his career. But that often leads to fans turning against him. He is clearly the underdog in his upcoming match against The Big Dog! The essence of the match is the fact that the biggest Face of the company is going against the biggest Heel of recent times. This makes the opportunity for Cena to turn Heel, all the more shocking.
Fans are least expecting Cena to turn Heel, setting up the perfect chance for him to turn on the crowd, use some unfair means to pick up victory. But this will obviously require Cena to make more WWE appearances in the near future, but there is no clarity on that as of now.
Can the Rated-R Superstar Edge turn Heel at WWE Summerslam 2021?
It is undebatable that the Rated-R Superstar Edge is a far better Heel than he is a babyface. But for his current WWE Summerslam 2021 storyline with Seth Rollins he is clearly the Babyface in the rivalry. WWE can decide to deliver a swerve and turn Edge Heel as the match progresses.
This will not be completely uncharacteristic for him, as he had done something similar a couple of months back. Edge had began his rivalry against Universal Champion Roman Reigns as a Face and had then slowly turned Heel, making Daniel Bryan the only Face in the rivalry.
Turning Edge Heel at Summerslam will serve multiple purposes. It will not only Edge to perform on his strengths but also help Seth Rollins for the future. Turning Edge Heel would mean an eventual Face turn for Rollins, which is necessary if WWE plans a Rollins vs Reigns feud. WWE is unlikely to go for a Heel vs Heel angle and hence a gradual Face turn for Rollins in necessary. .
WWE Summerslam 2021 airs live on 21st August, 2021.
