That would be different. There are certain wrestlers who feel all but destined to be a hero or a villain forever. It can be almost impossible to believe that anything could ever change for them as they fit into one mold so well. That can be very valuable, but it can also be incredibly interesting to see what happens when a change is made. It seems that we are seeing such a thing again.

According to, Brock Lesnar is officially a babyface in WWE as part of the SmackDown roster. This would mark the first time that Lesnar has been a babyface in WWE since before his return to the company, as he was last a babyface in 2003. In addition, according to Fightful Select, Lesnar is expected to be under contract for a year and a half, with at least eight matches on his deal. Lesnar returned to the company at the end of last weekend’s Summerslam, confronting Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman. He is scheduled to appear on this week’s SmackDown.

This has potential. Check out the old, new, and returning Lesnar:

Opinion: I could go for more of this as Lesnar as a babyface is the kind of change that could make things more interesting. He has been the monster final boss villain for so long now that it could be worth another look. That is what we are getting here and it could wind up being a nice change of pace. Throw in Heyman in the middle and we could be in for something really cool.

What do you think of the change? How will Lesnar do in the new role? Let us know in the comments below.
