Say Hello To The Bad Guys, Because Sometimes It’s Just More Fun To Be Bad

[Editors Note: I had originally wrote this for therealshyt.com, but I felt that it didn’t get the views it deserved or sparked the debated I would have wished for it to spark. This is one of the few wrestling post on that site that I really enjoyed putting together and felt that it should have gotten more recognition. The ALL CAPS on the other site wasn’t doing me any favors so I rewrote the whole thing for this site and tweaked a few things here and there to make it more recent. The main reason I decided to repost this though is because I always wanted to start working on a part 2, but on the other site it would have just fell on deaf ears, or blind eyes depending on how you look at things. I originally wrote this in October 2010 and I feel that my writing has stepped up since then so it would be interesting to see the difference between this and its sequel. There are about 6 or 7 other things I will repost on this site so don’t worry about me just doing nothing but recycling older material, and everything I do end up reposting will have some sort of continuance on this site. If you haven’t read this before then I hope you enjoy it and if you have read this before then I can only hope you will have a new appreciation for the type of work I was putting in on the other site which usually flew under the radar.]

There comes a time in a wrestler’s career when being loved and adored by millions of fans just isn’t enough. Sometimes you have to turn your back on the fans and spit in the face of authority to really get noticed. This post will showcase some of my all time favorite heels [Heel: wrestling terminology used to describe the bad guys]. Growing up I always prefered the heels and cheered them over the faces [Face: wrestling terminology used to describe the good guys]. I don’t know why, but I did. I fondly remember watching wrestling with my dad when I was little and he would always cheer the good guys and I would always cheer the bad guys. Good times. Over time nothing has really changed as I still prefer the heels over the faces and these are some of my favorites. Enjoy.


“The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels
Before finding God, Shawn Michaels was a complete and total douchebag, but in a good entertaining way. My favorite version of “The Heartbreak Kid” was when he was kicking ass and taking names as a bad guy in the 90’s. Shawn Michaels not only broke the rules, but he would also demand everyone to give him oral sex on national television. The heel version of HBK was known to manipulate Vince McMahon and was the master of backstage politics. Shawn was also known to refuse to job out to certain individuals. Michaels even went as far as screwing Bret Hart out of the WWF Championship at the 1997 Survivor Series PPV, in a surreal moment that will forever be known as “The Montreal Screwjob”. Newer fans may love the God fearing fan favorite version of HBK, but not me (even though his 1996 face run was pretty fucking great). Shawn was better suited as a heel. He won every WWF championship there was to win at the time as a heel, and who could ever forget his memorable Barbershop segment where he superkicked Marty Jennety through a glass window. Classic shit. Before I move on to the next heel, I would like to point out that only the heel version of HBK was able to defeat The Undertaker.

“Hollywood” Hulk Hogan
The greatest heel in the world of professional wrestling, PERIOD. You can say whatever the fuck you want about his in-ring skills or age in 2011, but “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan changed professional wrestling forever the day he crossed over to the darkside. You see, Hulk Hogan was one of the good guys for most of the 80’s and early 90’s, but as time went by people started brushing Hulk Hogan to the side and started calling him washed up. Hogan soon went “Hollywood” and changed the way things were done. Without “Hollywood” there would have never been no NWO, no DX, no WCW boom, no Attitude Era, no Stone Cold, no Rock, no Nexus, no nothing. When Hogan turned heel he revolutionized the world of professional wrestling. There has never been a heel that has ever changed the business all across the board as “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan has. Alot of people doubted Hogan could have pulled such a swerve, but pull it off he did. “Hollywood” terrorized WCW with his ever expanding NWO fraction. Hogan was such a bad ass and took over in such a way that Sting still hates his guts till this very day. Now that’s what I call impact.

Bret “The Hitman” Hart
Bret Hart first tasted WWF success as one half of the hard hitting, heel Tag Team, The Hart Foundation. While his partner Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart was the muscle of the group, Bret was quickly gaining popularity for his technical prowess. Bret Hart went on to have a superb face run on his way to superstardom. Bret Hart’s carer changed forever when he crossed the path of the WWF’s hottest upcoming heel superstar, Shawn Michaels. You see, Shawn Michaels had enough charisma to pull strings by playing backstage politics with Vince McMahon. Shawn Michaels was such a master manipulating heel that he somehow convinced Vince to destroy Bret by destroying his on air character. As the weeks passed by in the golden age of 1997, Shawn Michaels did everything he could do to break down “The Hitman”. As a result Bret had a very interesting heel run which consisted of him turning his back on his American fans all because we cheered degenerates such as Shawn Michaels and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin. In the process, Bret Hart became the biggest heel in America while simultaneously becoming the most popular international superstar to ever grace the planet. Bret became a natural on the mic as a heel, his banter with Shawn Michaels and his anti-American promos are enough proof of that. A heel Bret was also able to take a bad situation and make something good out of it. Never were the lines of reality so blurred in the world of professional wrestling as they were when a heel Bret Hart had a mic in his hand. In his autobiography Bret said that he always felt uncomfortable being a heel against his American fans, but I bet it was all worth it just to be able to say you punched Vince McMahon in the face with no legal repercussions.
“Stone Cold” Steve Austin
A revolution was sparked in the WWF with one simple sentence, “Austin 3:16 says I just whipped your ass”. Never has there been such a guy with little to no regard for authority who was so over and loved the way Austin was. Steve Austin truly didn’t give a fuck about anything except for winning championship gold and consuming alcoholic bevarages. As gimmicks came and went, as degenerates came to play, as Canadians were trying to be heros, while WCW was whooping WWF’s ass in ratings, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin was kicking ass, taking names and cutting historic promos. Austin helped bring the WWF back to prominence with his heelish attitude and because of that he earned the respect of wrestlers and fans alike. WHAT?

“The Nature Boy” Ric Flair
They don’t call Ric Flair “The Dirtiest Player In The Game” for nothing. With a heel career that has spanned the course of 40 years, nobody can deny that Ric Flair is one of the most dynamic, powerful, and influential heels in the history of professional wrestling. Flair has founded great heel stables including The Four Horsemen, Evolution and Fortune. Even in his 60’s Ric Flair hasn’t missed a step as he can still be found cutting some of the best heel promos in wrestling today as part of TNA wrestling. I know, I know, you thought Ric Flair was retired, but he’s not. Why anyone would have though Flair would stay retired is beyond me considering that he has broken every rule and has gone back on his word so many times it is not even funny. If any up and coming wrestlers need a blueprint on how to be a long lasting heel in this business all they have to do is follow Ric Flair’s career. WOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
Mr. McMahon
Vince McMahon is wrestling. A fucking wrestling God if you will. The only man that can rival Hulk Hogan in sheer power and influence in the business. Yea I said It. Hogan and Vince are the reason you’re even reading this column right now, but let’s not forget who created Hulk Hogan in the first place, Vincent Kennedy Mc”Motherfucking”Mahon. The man with the biggest grapefruits in the world of professional wrestling was the unlikeliest super heel to emerge in the late 90’s and helped cement the revolution known as the Attitude Era. The Mr. McMahon character came about by Vince screwing Bret Hart at the 1997 Survivor Series in a moment that blurred the lines of kayfabe and reality. Bret spit on Vince and ever since then any and all traces of the color commentator were long gone. In its place was Vince McMahon playing the role he was truly destined for, an over exaggerated version of himself simply called what else but Mr. McMahon. Vince went on to have memorable feuds with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels, Donald Trump and even God himself. Now that’s what I call a motherfucking bad ass.

The Rock

There was once a wrestler by the name of Rocky Maivia, and he sucked major balls. Sure Rocky was a naturally gifted athlete, but he was boring as fuck and his gumby hair style wasn’t doing him any favors. What was an initial face run turned into a memorable heel run all thanks to the fact that the fans turned their back on Rocky Maivia. “Rocky Sucks” chants used to fill the arenas every Monday night. The Rock then joined forces with The Nation Of Domination and the rest is history. As the mouthpiece of the 5 percenter stable, The Rock was born, taking on a mixture of Louis Farrakhan and a shit talking bully. The Rock proved to be one of those assholes you can’t help but love. The Rock made Monday nights special. The fans started to cheer him.  When it looked like he was on the verge of a major face run what does The Rock do? Well, he screws Mick Foley for the WWF Championship and joins another heel in the form of Mr. Mcmahon and his Corporation stable. The Rock defined awesome before The Miz was ever on MTV. Rock eventually earned the fans respect and ended up becoming one of the top faces in the history of the company. Without a mean streak though The Rock would have never been a major Hollywood star, let alone a champion of any sort. Sometimes it pays to be an asshole.
Matt Hardy
Matt Hardy is largely known as a good guy, but any man that will burn down his brother’s house, blow his brother up with pyro, tries to run his brother over with a car, among other things, deserves a spot in a post about bad ass MF’ers (See what I did there?). Matt Hardy also had an entertaining heel run when he first became a singles star as matt Hardy Version 1.0. Now if only he can lose some weight and give us Version 2.0, maybe he can once again rise to prominence.

“The Rated R Superstar” Edge

There is no way in hell that I was going to add Matt Hardy to this list and exclude Edge. Hardy  helped usher Edge into a new phase of his career, the “Rated R” phase. Edge went from lovable face, to girlfriend stealing, championship winning, live sex celebration having superstar. Edge would go on to earn the nickname “The Ultimate Opportunist” by being the first man to ever cash in a Money In The Bank contract, twice. The second one he stoled from Mr. Kennedy, now that’s what I call being a true heel. Edge went on to taste more championship gold as his heel run continued. Edge was also known to be a master manipulator using his charm on Vickie Guerrero to ensure his control over the Smackdown brand. Edge thrived as a heel, but I’m glad he retired a face. Thank you Edge.

Triple H

What do you get when you mix Ric Flair’s wrestling intellect and desire for attaining record breaking championship gold and Shawn Michaels backstage politic playing skills, well you get The Game, Triple H. The Game will go down in history as the most dominating heel of all time. The only other guy to get away with telling the world to suck his dick on national television, The Game is best played when he is obsessing over the WWE Championship. Armed with a sledgehammer, Triple H will fuck your shit up. Arguably the most powerful man in the business today, Triple H can make or break you without lifting a damn finger. Triple H has also been the leader of influential heel stables such as Degeneration X and Evolution, and how can anyone forget his memorable run in the Helmsley-McMahon era.

Randy Orton

Another bad ass heel who was so fucking bad ass that he eventually became one of the biggest faces a round, and unlike Austin, he didn’t need to compromise his character in order to appease the masses. Randy Orton was a part of one of this millenniums best heel stable known as Evolution and was also in a team with another heel as one half of Rated RKO with Edge. When it comes down to a true evil streak, Orton took on “The Legend Killer” name and proceeded to take out numerous WWE legends with vicious attacks which eventually lead him to incorporated his famous punt into his arsenal of moves. Orton’s stock rised as a vicious heel, who has gone on to punt Mr. McMahon and kiss Stephanie McMahon-Levesque right in front of her husband in the ultimate disrespect to his former mentor, Triple H.

Chris Jericho

The best in the world at what he does, period. Chris Jericho is one of those few superstars that can play both face and heel roles to perfection. I became a fan of Jericho when he was a cocky, arrogant heel in WCW. He had a great run in WWE as a face, but something was missing, then Jericho went missing. He returned with the intentions to save us all from the mediocrity that was polluting the WWE, but instead found his niche as a heel and what a fucking heel did he ever become. Jericho proved his superiority on the mic time and time again and captured a few world titles along the way. One of the best bad guys of this millennium for sure.

CM Punk

Semen Spunk, whoops, sorry about that, I mean CM Punk, was once a face who was starting to get stale and boring. Cashing in his Money In The Bank contract on arguably the biggest face in the company at the time (Jeff Hardy), Punk cemented himself as a major heel. CM Punk went on to impress with his excellent mic skills. To me, Punk’s rise to heel superstardom is ironic since he preaches the straight edge lifestyle which consists of no drinking or smoking. Very honarable traits to live by, but not in the world of the WWE, or is it Universe, whatever. CM Punk went on to create the short lived Straight Edge Society and showcased his badassness by viciously attacking Evan Bourne upon his Monday Night Raw debut. CM Punk used his manipulating ways to take over the renegade Nexus stable and made the members of the stable go through sadistic cult like initiations to remain part of the Nexus. CM Punk is rumored to be on his way out of the WWE and that’s a damn shame because he has the potential to be an all time great as a bad guy who fans will ultimately turn face again.

                       

I can keep going forever and include more of my favorite heels, but then this post will continue for all eternity so I’m going to stop now. The reason I reposted this was because I wanted to start working on a part 2 in the near future. I hope you enjoyed this post as I had fun making it. I would also love to read who some of your favorite heels in the history of wrestling are, so drop a comment and let me know, and as always thanks for reading. 🙂

    I didn’t cheer for the heels much when younger, but I LOVED it when we would get heel vs. heel matches just to see who the fans would side with.

    • May 11, 2011 at 8:29 pm

      Yeah I didn’t cheer for heels either. Speaking of heels vs. heels, I loved seeing The Miz-Alberto Del Rio in-ring confrontation to start RAW this week. The fans seemed quiet and not sure how to react to seeing two guys they both hate dissing each other.

        May 11, 2011 at 8:44 pm

        I cant stand the stupid fans, confused cuz theres no good guys…it really depends on the city too…some ppl would eat that shit up. I appreciated it. HHH is a natural heel, I havent liked one moment of his face run, when he said no one backstage was a threat he was right…but that statement made me lose interest in him because you should put over the talent you have now. Del Rio could go down as the greatest heel of all time

        • May 11, 2011 at 9:48 pm

          It does depend on the city sometimes, like in Chicago CM Punk will always be a face there no matter if he rips on them like he did that one time on a PPV. Del Rio has a bright future as a heel, but I think Miz will be turning face sooner rather than later.

          • May 12, 2011 at 12:34 pm

            Yep I was just gonna mention Chicago and by the way, I was at that PPV you mentioned. Chicago is a heel city….we hosted a Jericho vs. Mysterio match in 2009 when Jericho was heel and there was a huge face pop for Jericho when he put Rey in the Walls. Everyone was screaming, “Tap Tap Tap!” lol.

            • May 12, 2011 at 4:44 pm

              I would love to be in a crowd like that. I remember when I went to the 900th episode of Raw. I must have been the only one going crazy and cheering the heels and booooing the faces. I guess the Boston crowd loved the faces because I kept getting weird stares, but I didn’t give a fuck. There were a few who enjoyed my antics that night, but we were clearly in the monority. We were also the ones having the most fun. Go figure.

    • May 11, 2011 at 9:42 pm

      I came up on the late 80′ and 90’s wrestling and the coolest guys out were always the heels. NWO, DX, Stone Cold, (others I must not mentioned to not give part 2 away)that whole era was dominated by the bad guys. Attitude was key, shit they call it the attitude era for a reason. I wish they had more face vs face, heel ve heel matches. Its easy to get someone over as a face when they go against heels and vice versa but if it was the same then the people would be force to choose who they really want to be over and not the guys they were dictated to like.

    The long term plan for Miz is to turn him face. The plan for Del Rio is to push him all the way as a heel, then turn him face.

    • May 12, 2011 at 4:48 pm

      Miz will be a good face. In all his media appearances I have seen on TV he comes of as clean cut lovable face which is weird because he is a chicken shit heel with a slight touch of ruthless aggression on Raw. He has a natural charisma that fans can relate to. It’s only a matter of time before he turns.

      • Capt. Smooth
        May 12, 2011 at 5:33 pm

        I remember the little videos right when he first started. He was going around the office, being a smartass, flirting with the women. He’d be a perfect face.

  4. May 12, 2011 at 9:58 am

    I remeber reading this! You should have taken out the part about Matt Hardy though. He doesn’t deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as these guys.

    I always cheered for the heels ever since I started wrestling. I always prefered the big badass guys. They’re more interesting.

    • May 12, 2011 at 4:50 pm

      Matt Hardy was a very entertaining heel. WWE fucked up by not elevating his character during both of his more memorable heel runs. He was a dastardly bastard and deserves to be on the list.

  5. May 12, 2011 at 11:23 am

    I also cheered for the heels all the time. And I still do xD

    I started watching the WWE in 2003 or 4 and that was why I immediately liked Randy Orton (no Randy, it wasn’t just because you are attractive), Triple H and ESPECIALLY JBL.

    I miss JBL all the time, and while I like ADR in ring style is gimmick reminds me to much of Bradshaw…but he just doesn’t do it as well. JBL could really be a douche.

    • May 12, 2011 at 4:55 pm

      If everyone was a face wrestling would be really boring. We need the bad guys to keep things interesting and moving forward. Orton makes for a great heel. WWE knows this and it might be the reason he hasn’t really committed to a 100% face turn. He is still evil, he just plays by the rules at the moment, kinda like me as a writer, lol. JBL was good too, but he is one of those heels I actually wanted to hate.

  6. May 12, 2011 at 12:37 pm

    Triple H was the first heel I rooted for. This was in 2000. He was so bad ass and cool that he was hard not to like. And his theme song was really cool too.

    • May 12, 2011 at 5:02 pm

      Triple H’s “My Time” theme was his best theme hands down. He was one of the best heels to ever do it. A throwback to the real bad ass heels from the past you can tell Triple H is a student of the game and incorporated all the aspects from some of the best heels ever into his own character. I hated face Triple H when DX reunited after all those years, but thats only because I would rather him play a super heel. I think they should bring him back to TV and let him play his executive role. Be an authority figure like Mr. McMahon used to be.

    May 12, 2011 at 1:28 pm

    lol i grew up a freakin mark in the nineties i loved the good guys and hated the bad guys. It wasnt until one of my friends told me he liked a heel (gasp) that i started making my own decisions lol.

    • May 12, 2011 at 5:05 pm

      I think the only faces I liked in the 90’s was Bret Hart, Sting, DDP, Goldburg, and Shawn Michaels brief face run in 1996. The bad guys were just better.

  8. Hannington Dia
    May 12, 2011 at 2:07 pm

    My favorite heel? Hmm. I’d have to say either Edge or Christian. I remember watching Raw the night after Unforgiven 2006. The steel cage match for the WWE Championship Cena had just won over Edge was nuts for me. I really wanted Edge to win and Cena to lose, which is why I got a little miffed with D-X interfered and cost Edge the title. I say Christian because when you look at his heel 2005 promos, it becomes clear that this man is money when he’s a bad guy. Please, YouTube a few of those. Especially the ones where he faces JC during the draft and at Backlash of that year.

    • May 12, 2011 at 5:09 pm

      Edge was my favorite heel during his “Rated R” phase. I always had known him to be a face and was surprised by the new and improved Edge. Edge had an edge to him that made me gravitate more to his character than I could ever do with John Cena. Then there was the fact that Lita was always by his side showing off her great tits every chance she got :).

      • Hannington Dia
        May 12, 2011 at 9:55 pm

        Actually, I take that back. My no 1 fav heel is JBL. A racist, elitist rich Texan who made you love to hate him.

  9. Capt. Smooth
    May 12, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    See, this is the thing I don’t get about cheering for heels. Why cheer for a douchebag? I mean I like the Punk heel character. It’s a great character, but I just can’t fathom getting behind somebody that brags about just how much better he is than me.

    • May 12, 2011 at 4:24 pm

      That’s a good question. In my case I think it is because I was always the cynical black sheep of the family.

      • May 12, 2011 at 5:15 pm

        Lol, I have always been the black sheep in my family. Everyone is so strict and stuck up, I’m cool, calm and collective and for some reason they don’t get it.

    • May 12, 2011 at 4:24 pm

      It makes more sense when Punk is in Chicago because that’s his hometown. Punk is one of the few Superstars these days that every single time he’s in his hometown, it is referenced in his promos and/or by the announcers. I don’t recall that happening every time when Cena is in Boston.

    • May 12, 2011 at 5:13 pm

      I liked the way Punk was supposed to make me feel guilty about drinking and smoking and I would just spark the essence or have a beer in my way to say fuck you back to the TV. Sure he didn’t see me, but it made me feel closer to his character because it was something that I have never done with anyone else. It was a weird connection that might not make sense to most, but it does to me. The more he talked the more It made me realize that Punk was ready for the next level of his WWE career. I loved the passion in his promos. I didn’t have to agree with his lifestyle choices, but I respected him for strongly believing in what he said.

      • Capt. Smooth
        May 12, 2011 at 5:52 pm

        I just don’t think you should “respect somebody for strongly believing in what they say” and make it about that alone. There has to be some substance to what they’re saying. I wouldn’t get behind many of the Southern Baptists here in Louisville. The local seminary is run by a bunch of sexist pigs who treat people like scum. Sure, they “strongly believe in what they say”, but that shouldn’t be enough for me to side with them. Same thing goes with the KKK, that church that prests at military funerals over gay rights, or the heel Punk. People who are like that shouldn’t be celebrated for being dicks, they should be pitied.

        • May 12, 2011 at 7:06 pm

          He believed in a good cause though which should have made me feel like dirt for doing the things he was preaching against, but he played the part so well that I found him to be highly entertaining. Maybe I didn’t appreciate the way he went about spreading the message, but he created such a compelling character that I was always interested to see what he was going to do next. In wrestling I like the heels, in real life, maybe not as much even though I have more things in common with a rebel than I do someone that lives the straight and narrow lifestyle. I don’t agree with anything Hitler ever did, but if he was a wrestling character I might think he was such a bad ass I would have became a fan eventually. I don’t know how to explain this without coming off as a lover of all things evil. I guess its ok in wrestling because its meant to be entertaining.

            This is interesting. You remember that political campass? There is a personality test I’ll foward to you tomorrow. It’s much longer and more detailed, but it would be interesting to see what personality traits might be connected to cheering for faces or heels. Perhaps, you could put it up here after I get it to you. It’s free.

    • May 12, 2011 at 4:56 pm

      Chicago loves CM Punk…..he was the Sports Grand Marshal of the Chicago Thanksgiving Day Parade in 2008:

    • May 12, 2011 at 5:18 pm

      Maybe the good guys should get theirs too. Sometimes a heel can be a face to someone else depending on how they see things. Even when Austin turned face he was still drinking and swearing and kicking his bosses ass. Sure alot of us cheered that, but im sure there was a few people who still say him as a heel. CM Punk is another good example of the heel/face line being blurred for some. Good guys always win in all the movies, wrestlin is the only place you can see a face get fucked up and not feel too bad about it, lol.

      • Capt. Smooth
        May 12, 2011 at 5:54 pm

        About Austin kicking Vince’s ass, Vince was the bad guy. Of course people are going to cheer for that.

        • May 12, 2011 at 6:58 pm

          Yes, but he is the boss. Beating on the boss no matter if they are good or bad can land your ass in jail. I was trying to say some mom wouldn’t want her child watching that kind of behavior and super uptight conservative would hate it and find Austin to be a heel during his face run. As for me, I absolutely loved it :).

              • May 12, 2011 at 8:14 pm

                She would be right to think so though. Like The Undertaker is a face, but someone who believes in evil spirits, ghost or zombies might think he is the reincarnation of the devil and thus they will see him as a heel. It’s all about perspective. I don’t think I like heels just for the hell of it, there is just an extra dimension to their character that a plain ole boring face can never achieve from a pure entertainment standpoint.

    I guess I’m more into the characters even though moments like the Nexus debut where they destroyed everything and fucked everyone up was awesome. The crowd went silent but I was going insane and jumping for joy as Cena got destroyed and spit on.

      I hated what they did. All they proved is they are cowards. 8 on 1(I know they attacked more people, but you know what I mean.) . They should’ve just called themselves “Bukkake”. As much as I hated what they did, I did go “HOLY SHIT!!!” several times. It was a big moment that I’ll never forget, but it doesn’t mean I should cheer them on.

        I didn’t really give a shit about them on NXT I heard alot about Daniel Bryan before hand, but on NXT all he did was lose and look like a dweeb (according to Michael Cole). The only one I was a fan of was Michael Tarver because he didn’t give a fuck about anything on that show. Daniel Bryan stepped up against Michael Cole and thats when I really took notice of him. He fits the heel role perfectly. He should have been the leader of Nexus but he took it too far on the Nexus debut I guess. Personally I don’t think he did anything wrong lol.

          Daniel Bryan is going to have to choke a bitch.

    My favorite heel on this list has to be Ric Flair. I have been watching him since his NWA days and he was what drew me into wrestling. His attitude was something I have never seen before and he used to put on clinics with some of his face opponents. Another heel I grew up on was Harley Race and my favorite faces were Ricky Steamboat and Sting.

      I have educated myself on that era through old tapes. I have heard and seen some good things from the guys you mentioned. I missed NWA days, But I’m familiar with early WCW and Sting was great back in those days. Best matches of his I remember were against Ric Flair, Rick Rude,Vader and one time I think the Great Muta broke his arm or someone elses arm not really sure lol.

        Yeah, I remember watching the old WCW and pre-WCW stuff on TBS’s station from Atlanta. After Terry Funk attacked Flair and Flair partnered up with Sting, as a face-cheering mark kid, I loved it.

          I loved when Hulk Hogan turned his back on WCW and leg dropped Randy Savage to form the NWO 🙂

    I remember Nitro when Hogan joined the NWO, I for one cheered when he went heel. To me his face run was stale.

      Heel Hogam: Great character. Great performances. Great storyline. I just didn’t like my childhood hero turning against me.

        I remember alot of people being so pissed at Hogan sending death threats and throwing anything they can get their hands on in the ring, I bet those same people tuned in week after week to see what Hogan was going to do next.

    “Hogan”

    It was the best heel turn ever due to the fact that he was the biggest face ever and it changed wrestling forever. Alot of people now a days don’t like to give Hulk Hogan credit for anything, but as both a face and a heel he changed the way things were done.

      The funny thing is if something like that were to happen today, there wouldn’t be anything close to the amount of hate due to so many fans who cheer the heels.
