Thanks to the success of a recent article I wrote, many of you asked me to write an article comparing known faces in the WWE to athletes.
A face is the “good guy” in wrestling. A face is someone that all the fans love to see wrestle and perform. The face usually faces a heel (the bad guy) and the fans are usually behind the face, thank you John Cena for making me have to write usually.
There are plenty of faces in sports and here I will touch base with the most popular ones in football, basketball and baseball. Faces in sports are just guys that are not selfish and not hated by fans because of their off-the-field antics. The heels I spoke of the in this article are athletes who are hated because of what they do off the field or from the way they act on the field.
With all that being said, here are faces in sports and their WWE counterparts.
