Roman Reigns wasted no time in becoming a major star after returning in 2020. After winning the WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns has been booked as the ultimate heel in the company. That being said, it appears many believes Reigns’ babyface turn is guaranteed.

The Tribal Chief remains the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion and there is no end in sight as far as his dominant reign is concerned. Reigns has demolished everyone who has come before him so far.

While speaking on his Jim Cornette’s Drive Thru podcast, the WWE veteran talked about Roman Reigns turning babyface. Cornette made it clear that his babyface turn is a guaranteed but there is one catch.

“So, it’s, you know, it’s gonna happen. It has to happen. But they don’t need to just say, ‘oh, we wanna turn him babyface now, who can we put him with?’ That doesn’t need to happen. It needs to be obvious to everybody here’s the f****** guy. [But John Cena never turned heel after he returned babyface, is Reigns so good as a heel that you shouldn’t turn him babyface again?] Well, no. Cena never turned heel because the merchandize sales and the Make-A-Wish.

Going the opposite, no, Roman Reigns because he is such a good heel will eventually, and whether it’s the, I would assume it would be the riding off into the Twilight of his career. I’m not saying wait till he’s 60. Who knows how much longer he’s gonna do this? But it would be for a last run of a year or two. And he already makes sporadic appearances. So, they wouldn’t be beating it to death. But it probably it needs to happen because when you get so good at being bad, the people like it. Roddy Piper, Steve Austin, Jerry Lawler, through territories in history. It’s gonna happen.”

WWE also plans on turning Roman Reigns into superhero babyface in the end. Regardless, we’ll have to see when The Head Of The Table will be turned into a babyface.

What’s your view on what Jim Cornette said? Do you think Roman Reigns is on his way to becoming a babyface? Let us know in the comments!
