Should Evan Bourne turn heel?

Recommended Posts

We saw what a heel turn did for Daniel Bryan. He had had a good run as a face (especially winning the US title off The Miz) but has excelled so much more since turning heel. He's managed to make 'YES YES YES!!!' a trademark and delivered several hilarious lines when flaunting his veganism and environmentalism.

 

R-Truth also got a short lived rise when he initially turned heel and snapped. After 2 years of his tedious cookie cutter rap entrance, the heel turn and character change brought new life to him. He hasn't reached the heights that Daniel Bryan did, but I think he's made a bigger connection with the audience since going crazy.

 

So I was wondering what a character change could do to Evan Bourne. He's a slick and maneuverable individual and has a fantastic shooting star press. But what grinds me the wrong way is that incessant gigantic smile he has! Its like he has no other facial expressions. I noticed that in his big PPV match against Jericho 2 years ago that half the crowd ended up siding with Jericho.

 

So, should Evan Bourne milk this gigantic smile he has and use it to piss people off? I don't think such a change would elevate him as much as it elevated Daniel Bryan, but I think that Evan Bourne would be better suited as a smug heel and do something of note in the mid card.

X Division champ by September. He'll always be an afterthought in the E especially after his suspension. Stick him in a tag team or singles on superstars / experience.

 

In TNA they may use him better plus i think he would have better recieved matches agains the likes of Shelly, Aries, Ion even AJ

 

If the E release him he can only blame himself though for his drugs. He should look at whats happened to Kendrick for what happens to a talented cruiser that management seem to like yet cant control his habits

Evan Bourne is a very talented wrestler but his style does not fit within the WWE mould.

 

Damn, you've only made 4 posts and all of them have been bollocks.

 

Evan Bourne is definitely on his way out, the whole locker room hates him and he's expendable.

Bourne has adapted just fine and was great fun when he was on ECW. But he's a charisma vacuum on the mic, unlike Bryan who had a track record of being a great heel before WWE. I don't think he'll go after WM, but I wouldn't be surprised if he was gone by the end of the year.

I think a more relevant question would be Should Evan Bourne return AT ALL.

He's not worked out in WWE as anything more than a midcard JTTS, and he has been suspened twice by WWE wellness, I see him going in WWE's annual post WM spring clean
