JBL recently appeared on Busted Open Radio where he talked heels in wrestling. The former WWE Champion made his mark as one of the most effective heels of his time. Check out his comments below.
Best Heels Ever:
“Oh yeah, I think Piper, to me, was the greatest heel of all time, most likely, I think, now, that being said, in mainstream. I think Fit Finlay was the best heel I’ve ever seen and there was no question about that. Fit Finlay, when he was in Europe, 20-something straight years of the same towns, the same territories, and he was still the top guy when he left. I don’t think people realize how good Fit Finlay was. He was the best heel and probably the best worker I’d ever seen.”
Best Heels Currently:
“Look, I think Randy Orton, he has obviously been around a long time, but I think Randy Orton can be a terrific heel. I think The Miz can be a terrific heel. Miz enjoys being a heel and I think he’s actually very good at it. People look at him and want to hate him. That’s what you want. Someone mentioned to me at FOX, ‘what a wonderful guy,’ but on air he comes across as a guy, you just want to punch him. That’s what a heel is.”
Who are your favorite heels of all time?
