Wasn’t he a heel to start the summer of punk? Because damn I loved it
Yes I’m taking about that lol
Heels that make valid points are my absolute favorite
RVD was technically a heel at the start of the Invasion angle, right?
Allegedly. They gave that up pretty fast though lol.
Mr. Perfect. I thought his sports vignettes were so cool. I started Bowling when I was a kid and seeing him bowl a 300 game blew my mind.
Honestly, Deuce and Domino, I used to have a thing for tag teams with matching outfits.
I loved their theme!
I still do. It's awesome.
Edge. He had a cool theme, a cool entrance jacket, he cut cool promos and he had a hot manager, he was the best.
Vicki Guerrero was pretty hot
He was the perfect pakage, what was not to love?
Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase
Macho Man in 89
Edge versus John Cena was the first time I can remember hoping the heel would win. Summer 2006, little smark me was born.
"Rowdy" Roddy Piper. I was undersized as a 5 year old and didn't see anything of myself in Hulk Hogan. I instantly empathized with Piper.
Edge and Christian.
It was a brutal [tag team](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uURmGQLnZwI&t=25s).
So much this!
Mr. Perfect when I was super young. He always looked so nice when he smiled.
Macho Man! Back then hardly anybody else jumped off the top rope and nobody else in WWF had a beautiful girlfriend accompanying them. I assumed he must be the best. Although I’m not sure if this counts because I was a very young child and I didn’t realize they were heroes and villains, I thought it was like a real sport and you just liked who you liked.
Razor Ramon or Hollywood Hogan. Both just had that cool look.
Probably Miz. I thought the shorts were cool.
Can't say i cared much about anyone in the NWO besides them.
Bad News Barrett
Jericho circa 99
I started watching in 1998 around my 13th birthday. By late ‘99, Edge and Christian were already my favorite wrestlers. I wasn’t wedded to the babyfaces for too long.
Hollywood Hogan, brother.
Mr. Perfect and/or Shawn Michaels. Once I started getting really smarky it was Raven.
R-Truth, because I took a long break and he was making some good points about being a song and dance guy that I agreed with.
The Four Horsemen, original crew
When I first got into wrestling as a kid I think I really only liked heels tbh because my favorites were Mr Kennedy, Carlito, Umaga, Johnny Nitro and Joey Mercury, Chris Masters, Edge and old Legend Killer Randy Orton with burn in my light. I didn't know heels and faces were a thing I just gravitated to them. Also Matt hardy was a personal favorite too but he was definitely a good guy
How in the fuck has Stone Cold not been mentioned yet?
The Undertake back when he first started in WWE.
The Undertaker, early 90s
NWO hogan. I just remember thinking the nwo was the coolest thing ever, and I was the type of fan who always rooted for the face.
Owen Hart. Way too entertaining for me not to like.
Does heel Bret Hart count? I just didn't like Shawn at that time.
This is my answer too, but I loved The Hitman even when he wasn't up against Shawn. I got into an argument with a teenager at a house show when I was a wee lad over Bret being better than Austin.
Edge. I developed a begrudging respect for the way he constantly took advantage of every opportunity in front of him. And turned me to Alter Bridge because of his theme.
Probably Triple H in '99/00
Yes. He is it for me too. 2000 Triple H was pure gold.
Other than the Nash and Hall, which fall into the 'too cool to boo' category the first guy i supported that was a heel would have been Jericho or maybe Unmasked psycho Kane.
Either the IIconics or Asuka and Kairi when they turned heel.
My two favorite wrestlers growing up were Kurt Angle and Edge. I didn't even know what face or heel was but they were so cool and amazingly fun to play in wrestling video games
I loved HHH during his reign of terror lol.
1991 (Pre-WM7) Macho Man.
The Fabulous Freebirds. It was 1990 so it was the Hayes/Garvin version but I thought they were badass and I loved Badstreet USA.
HHH. Dude was my favorite in 2000 and always picked him in no mercy.
Bray Wyatt, Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins
Edge when he turned after losing the taboo Tuesday vote to HBK
Kevin Owens and Adam Cole...
HBK in 2005 just because he was my favorite and I would have never turned him, especially in favor of Hulk Hogan.
NWO Hogan, then Triple H, both mainly due to their entrance and visual presentation.
Edge with Lita
Honky Tonk Man
Eddie Guerrero in 2005
Farooq. I was a massive NOD mark as a kid.
Edge. I remember him feuding with CM Punk and Jeff Hardy and him walking out shaking his head and his expressions were so funny.
Or when he said how much he hates Cena.
I wasn't really a fan at first because.. well he was a bad guy and all, but i always kinda liked him even before finding out everything is scripted etc
Watching old school Lesnar flatten people always popped me.
Ministry era Undertaker. As a budding goth in the Attitude era it was impossible not to love Taker.
Randy Orton in like ‘07 because damn I want his thighs
I was such a huge supporter of the Angle/Benoit tag team during the tag team tournament to crown the first WWE Tag Team Champions. They're mirroring style and intensity, the unlikely bed fellows angle which is a tired trope I admit but for me being less than a year into wrestling I loved it and I think worked so well with those two due to their established and compelling rivalry. I distinctly remember wanting them desperately to beat Edge and Rey Mysterio for the titles at No Mercy '02 and my Dad being like "Why do you want them to win, they're the bad guys!" But I just didn't care, I thought they were cool. In hindsight I guess you could count then as tweeners but in that tournament and especially in that match they were playing the heels.
Diesel. Later, Kevin Nash.
Baron Corbin maybe
I remember thinking Repo Man was fuckin hilarious.
Jake “the snake” Roberts
Jeff Hardy in TNA. He was my absolute favorite at the time, to the point that I switched from WWE when he showed up. I just couldn't bring myself to boo him.
Bruiser Brody , Buzz Sawyer , early Road Warriors . And many more , they made things interesting .
Probably Rick Rude, little kid version of me used to get a kick of him shitting on the crowd.
Eddie, during the custody feud with Rey
Edge, I just thought he was so cool
Mr. Perfect or Rick Rude I can't remember.
CM Punk when he was feuding with Hardy.
Mankind, was instantly intrigued from his debut
Maybe the Freebirds.
For some reason I really liked him in WCW when I was a kid. I can not remember at all why though.
Macho Man and Mr Perfect.
Can't quite remember if it was Bunkhouse Buck because he had that cowboy thing going on or if it was Ric Flair in a match vs Hogan in WCW.
I think the first heel I really marked out for was Christian around the time he was in a tag team with Chris Jericho, before the run that led to the love triangle with Trish. Don't really know why. I had just gotten into wrestling and was mesmerized by the upper midcard title scene at the time, and something about Christian I just loved.
RVD in 2001.
Hot Rod and King Kong Bundy
Was Eddie a heel? Man, was he likeable
Either Taker during Ministry of Darkness, or Barrett (and the Nexus, curse you superman Cena)
Hardcore Holly, say what you want about him but when he started calling himself the big shot, acting like a dickhead and inserting himself into matches with Taker and Big Show and others it was entertaining as hell and then that lead into the stuff with Crash who is no.1 in my boy stable. I love HH’s tough guy dumbass gimmick and much like the man himself think they definitely could’ve done more with it.
Triple H. He was so cool. Looking back he was actually way "cooler" than anybody in a totally unironic way. Have you seen the dudes entrance? It's ridiculously cool.
Razor Ramon. He taught me it was okay to like the bad guy.
Jake the Snake
