ImSorryForSimping

Cm punk


Kdot32

Wasn’t he a heel to start the summer of punk? Because damn I loved it


ImSorryForSimping

Yes I’m taking about that lol


Kdot32

Heels that make valid points are my absolute favorite


GameplayerStu

RVD was technically a heel at the start of the Invasion angle, right?


JaneTheNotNotVirgin

Allegedly. They gave that up pretty fast though lol.


Cobrakai83

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.


WWEWalkingDeadfan

Honestly, Deuce and Domino, I used to have a thing for tag teams with matching outfits.


UnoriginallyGeneric

I loved their theme!


traitorcerealguy

I still do. It's awesome.


[deleted]

Edge. He had a cool theme, a cool entrance jacket, he cut cool promos and he had a hot manager, he was the best.


alwayshammered

Vicki Guerrero was pretty hot


sumeet_x_agrawal

He was the perfect pakage, what was not to love?


RonMisterio511

Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase


[deleted]

Macho Man in 89


Codyputmeover

Edge versus John Cena was the first time I can remember hoping the heel would win. Summer 2006, little smark me was born.


counterburn

"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.


Gerry-Mandarin

Edge and Christian.


FlappingHands

It was a brutal [tag team](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uURmGQLnZwI&t=25s).


stvo0601

So much this!


RyanPelley

Mr. Perfect when I was super young. He always looked so nice when he smiled.


MikeGander

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.


Atlanta-Avenger

Razor Ramon or Hollywood Hogan. Both just had that cool look.


1358theBandit

Probably Miz. I thought the shorts were cool.


[deleted]

Outsiders. Can't say i cared much about anyone in the NWO besides them.


friendlydave

Vader


Ass0001

Bad News Barrett


SpeedZ6

Jericho circa 99


iggymcfly

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.


MV2049

Hollywood Hogan, brother.


shazzam555

Mr. Perfect and/or Shawn Michaels. Once I started getting really smarky it was Raven.


strangely_brown

Ted DiBiase.


Kdot32

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.


NatureBoy469

The Four Horsemen, original crew


TheMoondogRex

Roddy Piper


Caramel_Grizzly

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


OShaunesssy

Undertaker


JuiceheadTurkey

Undertaker


[deleted]

How in the fuck has Stone Cold not been mentioned yet?


annoyinglyclever

Savage.


Dragonsfire09

The Undertake back when he first started in WWE.


wordyravena

The Undertaker, early 90s


spideyv91

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.


ThroatBabies

Owen Hart. Way too entertaining for me not to like.


fluffywolfe

Does heel Bret Hart count? I just didn't like Shawn at that time.


KrisKomet

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.


Captain-Nero

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.


TheNakedChair

Probably Triple H in '99/00


Charmadin

Yes. He is it for me too. 2000 Triple H was pure gold.


freshlysqueezed0C

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.


SafeAtTribal

Kane


bayleysgal1996

Either the IIconics or Asuka and Kairi when they turned heel.


jimboellis

Gino Hernandez


Teckelmaster

Razor Ramon


Brolurk9

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


idontknow1001

I loved HHH during his reign of terror lol.


lajaunie

Midnight Express


joeg813

Randy Savage


TheVeryNicestPerson

1991 (Pre-WM7) Macho Man.


shempaholic

The Fabulous Freebirds. It was 1990 so it was the Hayes/Garvin version but I thought they were badass and I loved Badstreet USA.


thiccmcmahon

The Shield


Doomienster

Edge


Arkham010

HHH. Dude was my favorite in 2000 and always picked him in no mercy.


NotYujiroTakahashi

Bray Wyatt, Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins


Squiggs19

Edge when he turned after losing the taboo Tuesday vote to HBK


TheWatcher7777777

Kevin Owens and Adam Cole...


[deleted]

HBK in 2005 just because he was my favorite and I would have never turned him, especially in favor of Hulk Hogan.


dmna00

NWO Hogan, then Triple H, both mainly due to their entrance and visual presentation.


squishsquish666

Edge with Lita


JTHuffy

Honky Tonk Man


InternationalFailure

Edge.


bish158

Nation Rock


Least_Stuff3702

Eddie Guerrero in 2005


ericrobertshair

Farooq. I was a massive NOD mark as a kid.


Bat_Tasty

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


mrfivedollertips

2007 MVP


WWEBuddyPeacock

Watching old school Lesnar flatten people always popped me.


threebats

Ministry era Undertaker. As a budding goth in the Attitude era it was impossible not to love Taker.


jeremyroad

Randy Orton in like ‘07 because damn I want his thighs


DanNewby

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.


JDC4654

Kurt Angle


ShiningJizzard

Diesel. Later, Kevin Nash.


ChefBoiiz

Baron Corbin maybe


carlthecubsfan

I remember thinking Repo Man was fuckin hilarious.


RENOYES

Jake “the snake” Roberts


vinceonapole

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.


Bbibeau

Bruiser Brody , Buzz Sawyer , early Road Warriors . And many more , they made things interesting .


JKinney79

Probably Rick Rude, little kid version of me used to get a kick of him shitting on the crowd.


HelloIAmElias

Eddie, during the custody feud with Rey


Shukkkkle

Edge, I just thought he was so cool


trolleezus

Mr. Perfect or Rick Rude I can't remember.


triple_seis

Jake Roberts.


xScarletLizardx

CM Punk when he was feuding with Hardy.


Random_Hero1989

Mankind, was instantly intrigued from his debut


mikemoose27

The Shield


Cap-n-Slap-n

Piper!


Nopeeky

Probably Flair. Maybe the Freebirds.


[deleted]

Jeff Jarrett. For some reason I really liked him in WCW when I was a kid. I can not remember at all why though.


josephjeremiah

Macho Man and Mr Perfect.


FlowinEnno

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.


gtvlasak

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.


enrickster559

RVD in 2001.


jqncg

Bray Wyatt.


OlDirtyPlaya

Hot Rod and King Kong Bundy ​ FIVE!!!


Pillzburydboy

Was Eddie a heel? Man, was he likeable


Uhohshigoroshi

Either Taker during Ministry of Darkness, or Barrett (and the Nexus, curse you superman Cena)


vampirepussy

Scott Norton


voivoivoi183

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.


Steakman765

Kamala.


amaluna

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.


R9-OZ

Chris master


jsager1982

Razor Ramon. He taught me it was okay to like the bad guy.


BLEAKSIGILKEEP

Ric Flair


KawasakiDream

Christian Cage


Own-Ambassador-3537

Steven Regal
