In response to this list, former WWE Champion JBL posted a lengthy blog in disagreement, and here is an excerpt from the blog which you can read in full by clicking here.
"I have to say the top 50 greatest heel list by WWE is pretty far off. Forget JBL, I'm too biased to comment on myself, after all who else has had to have a police escort out of a town like I had in El Paso in 2004? That is real heat-and has any heel had any heat like that where folks were actually wanting to kill you since then, but I digress.
The biggest problem I have is with Gorgeous George being #9. I believe he was the greatest heel of all time, he inspired Muhammad Ali and James Brown-this was the guy who set the bar.
Nothing against my pal Hot Rod, I think Roddy was greatest heel of modern era. It is hard to compare eras, so how do you compare Hot Rod to the 'Toast of the Coast' The "Sensation of the Nation" the 'Gorgeous One'. It's impossible. So any list is arbitrary.
However, putting Gorgeous George #9 is insane. The 4 Horsemen were the greatest faction of all time, you have to have them at the top. There are so many great heels, omitting Bruiser Brody though? Really? Or Stan Hansen? Or William Regal?"
