Greatest WWE heel ever: Triple H or Ric Flair?
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.
In this matchup, we have Triple H vs. Ric Flair. Triple H won his opening match, topping Vince McMahon by getting 55.6 percent of the vote. Ric Flair dominated Billy Graham in his first round debate, piling up 69 percent of the vote. Now, these generational heels go head-to-head for a place in the championship round. Who advances?
Don't forget to vote on the other semifinal matchup!
Triple H earned the "The Cerebral Assassin" for good reason. His tireless work to become the best wrestler catapulted him to the top of the wrestling world, where he has used the dirty tricks of past villains in his arsenal.
Triple H was always at the center of the action, betraying allies. He never hesitated to use his infamous sledgehammer. If you want a heel who can actually wrestle, irritate and have an overshadowing presence, look no further than Triple H.
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!
