Wrestlezone’s Top Ten: Best Heels in Wrestling

Josh Isenberg

Josh IsenbergProfessional wrestling is very simple, right? You cheer the bad guys, known as heels, and root for the good guys, known as faces. Over the past decade or two, fans have become much more intelligent and have rooted for who they thought was the best. This has caused a lot of interesting twists and turns. NWO was cheered when they were supposed to be heels, while John Cena was booed when he was suppposed to be the "Hulk Hogan" of the 21st century. There is still heels and faces, but just not as clear cut. This week, I give you the top 10 "heels" in professional wrestling. We could easily throw ROH guys in there as well, but I focused it on the top two, TNA and WWE. *Note: A heel is not ultimately a face if the crowd likes him. I am basing my definition of heel as to how they are booked and how they are supposed to be viewed as.
