Greatest WWE heel ever: Ric Flair or Billy Graham?
In entertainment, you need conflict. No one brought more conflict and chaos in the WWE than the heels of the company. As in the case of being the face, not everyone can just step in and be a villain. It takes presence, charm and outstanding commitment to being the most irritating human being possible to be the center of every WWE fans' hatred.
Professional wrestling has had some delightfully evil characters pass through its ranks from an egomaniacal CEO to a Nature Boy. But who's the baddest of the bad? We're pitting eight of the greatest agitators of professional wrestling ever to find out who is the best heel ever.

One of the greatest performers of the sport, Ric Flair's flamboyant persona perfectly fit the role of the heel. Whether it was flaunting his immense wealth, or employing some of the dirtiest tactics, Flair was always foiling the best-laid plans of faces like Sting or Dusty Rhodes.
There may be other heels in the WWE's future, but no one will ever have the next-level swag of the Rolex wearing, diamond ring wearing, kiss stealing, wheeling and dealing, limousine riding, jet flying son of a gun. Woooo!
Heels have always been a part of professional wrestling, but no one innovated the role quite like Billy Graham. His style and chiseled physique earned him a lot of praise and a lot of hate—and people loved him for it. He was the rare heel who held the heavyweight title for an extended period of time.
Because of his popularity, the WWE sold out Madison Square Garden 19 of 20 times he was headlining. He had a lot of duplicators, but there is only one Billy Graham.
