Could Roman Reigns be turning heel soon?

If you watched last night's Monday Night Raw then you may have noticed how Paul Heyman was very complimentary towards Roman Reigns. Reigns did not have anything bad to say about Heyman either. In fact, he said that he didn't have a problem with Heyman and the only person he has a problem with is Brock Lesnar. Some fans have speculated that this could, perhaps, be because WWE could be turning Reigns heel.

Bryan Alvarez talked about this on today's Wrestling Observer Live. Alvarez said that he's been told that the company already knows what that they will do for the finish of the Reigns vs. Lesnar match. However, it is not out of the question that WWE can renegotiate with Brock to get an extra match from him. He also said that he was told that it is not out of the question that they could have Roman Reigns side with Paul Heyman. They could either do that at WrestleMania or they can wait since there's a good chance that Brock will be cheered in the match. In that case then they could have Brock win at WrestleMania (that could be Brock's babyface turn) and then drop the title to Roman the next night on Raw and have Heyman turn on Brock.

Alvarez noticed the interaction between Reigns and Heyman as well. Perhaps this is just something they're doing to keep the possibility open in case they want to turn Roman heel. This is all speculation at this point but none of this is out of the question. Also, if you read the interview he did with Rolling Stone today, it would certainly seem like Reigns is teasing a heel turn. If you missed what he said about the fans then click here.

A heel turn might be the best thing they could do for Reigns because it doesn't look like he is going to get the full support from the fans right now and they could always go back and turn him face later on.
