A heel, according to Merriam-Webster's Dictionary, is defined as "a contemptible person." 

Throughout WWE history, heels have been essential to telling the stories that have captivated audiences across the globe.

After all, every hero needs a villain, and the Superstars on this list have been among the most vile in WWE history.

They have assaulted, degraded, humiliated, bloodied, beaten and bruised babyfaces in WWE rings for nearly five decades and have earned tremendous accolades as a result. Twelve of the 25 stars in these rankings have been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, while the remaining 13 are guaranteed a spot at some point in the future.

Despite their less-than-honorable actions, these heels have earned the adulation and respect of wrestling fans worldwide and, as a result, are among the most beloved and popular performers in WWE history.

Who are they?

Find out inside.


*This article is a look at the most popular and beloved heels ever, NOT the best heels ever. Please keep that in mind.
