Wrestlers who make their living in the WWE know that, from one day to the next, they are at the mercy of Vince McMahon and the rest of the organization's top brass.
That can mean anything from when you get your big push or what titles you will get to hold, but it is a character face or heel turn decision that often brings the most discussion and debate.
As such, new reports today coming out of the WWE suggesting one such Superstar has been working as a heel this week are sure to raise a few eyebrows.

As reported by Wrestling Inc., those in attendance at this weekend's live WWE events have witnessed Erick Rowan performing as a heel.
This would mark a significant change for the wrestler; Rowan having been a face since leaving the Wyatt family back in September 2014.

The same reports note that the bearded Superstar was involved in a match against Sami Zayn that ended in his defeat, before teaming with The Ascension to do battle with Jimmy Uso and The Prime Time Players.
And here is photo evidence of that match in Hamilton against Zayn.
It remains to be seen whether the WWE decide to implement a full heel turn and brick Rowan's anti-hero status back to the TV shows in the near future, but this latest update certainly suggests those in charge of looking at a new angle for the 33-year-old.
Of course Erick Rowan has solid experience as a heel having been part of the fabled Wyatt family for two years before they split in 2014 to allow the members a shot at a singles career. It was then that Rowan turned face and began feuds with the likes of Big Show.
The Superstar, though, has struggled to go over with the fans as a convincing face - even when he, alongside Dolph Ziggler and Ryback, was one of the three wrestlers fired by The Authority back in January, there wasn't much of a fan reaction to his role in the drama.
As such a heel turn would seem likely a good opportunity for Erick Rowan to return to what he does best - beating up fan favorites and enticing boos from packed arenas.
