The 5 Greatest Heels in Wrestling History

I’ve been watching professional wrestling for 23+ years at this point. But, during that time, never once have I been a big fan of the babyface (aka the ‘good guy’). There are a few ‘good guys’ that I enjoy but mostly I pull for the bad guys. Not only are they usually the coolest guys on the roster but they make the storylines so much more interesting. So, in honor of my love for the bad guys, here is a list of my favorite heels in wrestling history.

5) CM Punk

CM Punk made a decent good guy…but whenever he worked as a heel, the guy was just brilliant. He could make anyone, including his biggest fans, turn on him and hate his guts. Punk certainly made a mediocre era of professional wrestling so much more interesting. I still hope one day him and his anger return to the Wrestling universe in some way or form.

4) Hollywood Hulk Hogan

Hogan’s heel turn may have been the biggest in pro wrestling history. Hogan was always the hero: beating down the baddies and telling kids to say their prayers and take their vitamins. However when he flipped and joined the NWO, people wanted to kill him for ruining their childhoods. It was a huge moment that forever changed the course of wrestling.

3) Chris Jericho

Jericho always says he’s the best in the world at what he does. And while that may be a bit of an over statement, it’s not by much. Every time Jericho steps into the heel role, he kills it. From insulting crowds, wrestlers and harassing folks on Twitter, Jericho just kills it. If you don’t like Jericho, than you’re a stupid idiot!

2) Vince McMahon

When you hear ‘No Chance In Hell’ echoing through a WWE arena, you KNOW someone is about to get screwed. He’s played the villain in some of the greatest storylines in wrestling history. I mean come on…who doesn’t hate their boss?


1) Ric Flair

Come on…who else is going to be number 1 on this list? For over 40 years, Ric Flair has been THE man. Ric Flair is the greatest heavyweight champs, the greatest US champ and the greatest heel of all time. In his prime, not only could Ric bring the heat to a match but he could go toe to toe with anyone in the industry. In fact, he has more 5-Star matches than anyone in the history of professional wrestling.

To be the man, you have to beat the man…and nobody can top Ric or his rides on Space Mountain. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
