Top superstar set for dramatic heel turn at Money in the Bank?

The WWE is never too far away from revealing a surprising heel turn and it looks like they could be planning one of their most shocking decisions yet.

It has been heavily speculated for the past few weeks that Dean Ambrose could be set to turn heel and reveal the Jon Moxley character that many of his fans have waited for the past few years. 

Now reports surrounding next week's Money in the Bank pay-per-view suggest, though, that it could be his long time friend and brother Roman Reigns that actually turns heel on him. 

Doing the dirty work

A lot of the speculation comes down to the fact that WWE have been making to much of a big deal about the fact that Reigns is Ambrose's only friend and the only one he can depend on. 

Reigns won the Royal Rumble then defeated Daniel Bryan at Fastlane before he was allowed to main event WrestleMania and cash in his shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Ambrose, meanwhile, has been handed two shots at the championships over the past few weeks and he has hardly even had to work for them. 

As Ambrose has risen up the ladder, Roman has been relegated to a glorified bodyguard for his former Shield teammate.

Whilst it has done wonders for his popularity, it has seen many of the WWE Universe questioning why Reigns isn't going after the Championship he wants, given that he has been built as the kind of person who doesn't care whose toes he steps on. 

Tipping point

This week on Raw says all it needs to, Ambrose sent Reigns out and he negotiated another World Championship match for him without the Lunatic Fringe setting foot in the ring. Reigns had to go through three top superstars before he was allowed entry to a match to win the briefcase which in turn would given him the title shot that Ambrose has just easily been handed. 

It seems The Authority are punishing Roman Reigns for Dean Ambrose's actions because they can't seem to get Ambrose to stay in one place and even arresting him didn't have any effect. Technically, no one forced Reigns to come down and defend Ambrose at Elimination Chamber or even this week on Raw, but it seems, at least for now, Reigns is continuing his best friend duties. 

Just how the heel turn works remains to be seen. If Roman wins the briefcase then he would have to go after Dean in the main event in order to turn because going after Seth Rollins would see him remain a face.

Whilst if he fails to capture the case, he could go into jealousy mode and, if Dean Ambrose does manage to win the match again, he could come out and act like he's congratulating him, only to turn on him.   

This is the great thing about WWE right now, the possibilities are endless. With Lesnar set for an early return and a Seth Rollins verses Triple H feud on the horizon, anything could happen next Sunday.
