    This was discussed on another thread and seemed to get heated very quick.
    I vote Chris Jericho. He genuinely loved playing the asshole you could see it in him. One of the magical baddies that you actually end up rooting for. He didn’t need a Schtick like dressing as an Arab or German or a tax collector.
    His wit was second to none, the lionsault, the walls of Jericho the Jerrichoholics, the talkshows in the ring that would descend into chaos,

    Roaring ASK HIM at the ref when he had a sub on a rival.
    Being able
    To be at the top for so many years and all this he was actually a fairly small guy when it comes to wrestling heels.

    I know it’s subjective but who was the best heel you remember. And lads, try not get too emotional.


    The theme tune. Break the walls down.

    I suppose it’s be anybody who’s job it was to antagonize the hero.

    Roddy Piper! He was the KING of Heels!

    Vickie Guerrero, all she had to say was 2 words.

    Vince has the be up there. Intentional or not.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,367 ✭✭✭RocketRaccoon


    HHH simply has to be up there in this discussion


  • Registered Users Posts: 975 ✭✭✭supremenovice


    Kurt Angle for me. Legit athlete and heat magnet from day 1 at Survivor Series '99.
    Honuorable mention to Mr Perfect.

    As good as he was I just don’t think he had the wit Jerricho had. Jerricho had everything triple H, Vicky Guerrero and Santino Marella had.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,005 ✭✭✭BDI


    Good call on Kurt Angle in his prime, the faces he used to pull when he didn’t get his own way. Making me chuckle now thinking about it.

    The shouting with each German suplex.

    The crowd chanting you suck along to his theme tune.

    Rowdy Piper set the benchmark for future heels

    They never did it for long enough but heel in America Bret was great. Dickhead Hbk from that era too was very good. Mr. Perfect too, so good as a heel I never liked him as a face.
    Rock like Hogan was an excellent heel & from being fantastic babyface knew how to work the crowd.

    HHH for me his run pre quad was good, post quad it was like he was overcompensating. His run with Evolution was legit unbearable. Steiner, Rvd, Booker, Kane, Goldberg & Nash. Were all for different reasons trash. Hbk got good matches out of him & when Benoit was added to the mix but I think I'd have good matches with those two.

    I never seen enough of Flair in his prime to put his name there. But historically he's always mentioned.

    Some great mentions so far. Bret Harts '97 heel run I thought was great.


  • Registered Users Posts: 106 ✭✭LibSuperstar


    Was gonna say Buddy Rogers but since it was stipulated who I saw I'll go w/ Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase.

    Flair brought the whole heel game to another level


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,054 ✭✭✭D.Q


    JBL during the smackdown title run in with a shout.

    No redeeming qualities, not cool, not a flashy worker just a ****ing bastard.

    Regal was an incredible heel too, but so damn entertaining it was almost tongue in cheek.

    Hollywood Hogan

    You fans can stick it brother

    it's Vince.

    perfect time. perfect person. perfectly played. with the perfect protagonist in Austin.

    and they made a fúckload of money.

    also Vince, unlike Stephanie, and often unlike Hunter, had no ego when it came to his on-screen character. he'd put himself in positions to be ridiculed. he'd lose when the time was right. you knew that if he and his goons one-upped your hero, then the hero would get his revenge soon, and so you wanted to see just how much of a prick he could be before he got his ass kicked.

    the perfect heel.


  • Registered Users Posts: 775 ✭✭✭bot43


    John Cena. Legit heat every time he showed his face. In an age of the cool heel his OTT good guy schtick was enough to make people legit hate him.

    The fact he created division helped to with kids and dames liking him.

    But the real answer is Ric Flair.


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,244 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Obviously ric flair is his prime was an untouchable heel. Tully Blanchard form what I'd seen and what I've watched since was an easily dislikeable heel. Arn Anderson was kind of a different heel but kind of like Jake Roberts.

    None of the current generation as good as some are like Ciampa and others on the mic will never be considered as good as the ric flairs of the world.


  • Registered Users Posts: 35,756 ✭✭✭✭SlickRic


    Tully was a better heel than Ric.

    Ric was the star, but Tully was proper hated.

    Tully from what I’ve watched and heard was easy to dislike.

    Heenan, the manager


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,933 ✭✭✭rizzla


    MJF seems to be on his way.


  • Registered Users Posts: 975 ✭✭✭supremenovice


    I want to give a shout to Mankind too, when he debuted around 1996. He was pushed as a legit threat to the Undertaker and beat him in a Boiler Room brawl (I think Bearer turned on Taker). He ultimately turned lovable face but that debut year, he seemed indestructible and scary as feck.

    I much preferred him in WCW, he played a great heel, and his music was cool.
