I have always loved the bad guys. It started with Rowdy Roddy Piper, The Nature Boy Ric Flair, Mr. Wonderful Paul Orndorff, Jesse The Body Ventura, and Jake The Snake Roberts.
I took a break from wrestling during the famous "attitude era" but I love watching tapes of that exciting time. Now that I have gotten back into wrestling and writing, I thought that this would be the perfect subject to start writing about since the villains have been getting so much heat.
Just recently, Chris Jericho was attacked after his match in Canada by fans who believe he truly is the arrogant character he plays in the WWE.
The first villain that I enjoy a lot is Edge. The Rated R Superstar had to grow on me. I hated when he was with Lita and they had their now infamous, Live Sex Show.
However, I have always believed he was an extremely talented wrestler and has great skills on the mic. Being an "Edgehead" myself, it is hard to view him as I bad guy but with Vickie "Excuse Me" Guerrero, it is easier not to like him.
The Master Manipulator has already held both titles in the WWE in 2009 and the year has just begun. I smell Superstar of the Year 2009.
The next villain is a guy with a great smile and good looks but a horrible attitude: Chris "Superstar of the Year 2008" Jericho. How can you not like the real Chris Jericho?
I've listened to shoot interviews where he seems like just an average guy but when he gets on the mic and calls the audience hypocrites, he gets heat like no one else. His characters evolution begun after Shawn Michaels defeated Ric Flair at his retirement at WrestleMania.
He talked down to Shawn and then begun talking down to everyone. He's the superstar fans love to hate. However, lately he's been on a bit of a losing streak. No titles so far. But, I'm sure he'll be back to annoy everyone in the audience because he is an incredible heel.
The final villain is one that I didn't think would be on this list last year: Randy Orton. He was and still is, one of the only villains that gets a mixed reaction from the crowd. Some cheer him, but most boo him. I cheer him for his amazing physique alone, but I'm beginning to notice he has gotten better inside and outside the ring.
But since he started this feud with the McMahons, I noticed where they were taking his character. He's the modern day Psycho Sid. He is so believable and intense that it is easy to believe he may have an explosive disorder. The only thing I don't like about this feud is that it feels a little stiff.
When Randy is on the mic, it seems a bit forced. When he was in the ring with Shane, it wasn't that believable. He put on an incredible match but it just seems that Randy should be in the ring with a wrestler. That is why I am loving the fact that Triple H will be going up against him.
As for the Legacy, I could do without seeing them because I highly doubt Orton needs them. Dibiase does not have that much personality, but I see potential with Cody Rhodes. My prediction is that Randy will get a world title this year and the Legacy will break up soon.
Well, this concludes my first article. I have enjoyed commenting on my favorite heels. I look forward to being a member of the Bleacher Report community. For my next article, I think I'll write about one intesting storyline or superstar.
