Is Triple H set for a face turn - and when should it happen?

There have been ongoing rumours for the past few months that Triple H was set to turn on World Champion Seth Rollins and the two would then face off at Summerslam.

WWE plans

Now it appears WWE are instead planning a Champion vs Champion match in four weeks time as United States Champion John Cena looks set to face WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins in a match that will have bragging rights on the line. 

Whilst fans are not happy about a match that has nothing but pride on the line, it seems like this is the appropriate filler because the real pull of the event is Undertaker vs Brock and the return of Sting. 

This doesn't mean that WWE have scrapped Triple H's face turn completely, it just seems that they have put it on the back burner for now.

When Stephanie McMahon played her part in the NXT Divas Revolution just over a week ago, this turned her into a face in the eyes of the WWE Universe and it is unethical for WWE to allow a husband and wife to be face and heel at the same time. 


The current idea seems to revolve around Triple H siding with NXT talents that include Finn Balor, Sami Zayn and Hideo Itami as a small revolution of their own and as a way to allow these talents to be promoted to the main roster. 

Whilst this seems like a great idea, you have to think that Finn Balor is currently the NXT Champion and Sami Zayn is set to be out injured until 2016, which means these are not plans that WWE are ready to put into place straight away.

It is currently unknown where Seth Rollins goes after SummerSlam, it is also unknown where John Cena goes because it is likely that it will be just a one match rivalry.

What is known is that WWE need to plan something big for the main event of Night of Champions and Hell in a Cell if they want to keep Network numbers up heading into the fourth of their big PPV's, Survivor Series in November. 


Seth Rollins will not be main eventing a Pay-per-view for the first time since WrestleMania, instead The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar will have their revenge match, 15 months after the first one occurred at WrestleMania 30.

Reports today suggest that this wont be the only match between the two as WWE may have new plans to extend the rivalry out to WrestleMania 32 where it is likely that Brock could play a part in Undertakers last ever WWE match, in his hometown of Texas.
