Like all things there’s always a good guy and a bad guy, the WWE is no exception.

A ‘heel’ is someone who prides themselves on being the bad guy that everyone loves to hate, without them professional wrestling would be boring.

Here is a list of 15 of the best heels to have ever graced the WWE ring.


15. Muhammad Hassan


Muhammad Hassan was a controversial character to say the least. What made Hassan an excellent heel was the timing of the character coming off post 9/11 was controversial but people liked it.

Hassan played off that scenario perfectly expressing frustration and hate towards America, and gaining heat from everyone WWE or not along the way.

14. JBL


When he introduced his JBL gimmick to the WWE Universe, he straight away got heat from the fans for his cocky attitude.

His in ring ability may not have been top notch but it was his mic skills that got him over.
