List of the best heels in history of WWE. These are some of the greatest bad guys that the wrestling world has ever seen. Though many of these WWE Superstars also shined brightly as "baby faces" (good guys) during their careers, they unquestionably will go down as some of the all time greats at making everyone in the WWE Universe hate them. A lot. Hate them so, so, much.

From active wrestlers, to corporate figureheads, to managers, the art of the heel is under appreciated in a lot of wrestling circles. It takes guts to make the people hate you. More importantly, it takes skill to pull it off. 

So what do you think, Rankermaniacs? Who is the best heel in WWE history? Vote for your favorite bad guy now!
