WWE doesn't have a single credible heel anymore

Besides KO/Sami who are already jobbers at this point with how they've been booked, not one heel came out on top last night. They also didn't look strong in defeat. WWE has a ton of problems, but a major one right now has to be their lack of credible heels. Brock Lesnar is the only one on the entire roster and he isn't full time. Joe can't win two matches in a row ever. Corbin is being tricked by women. Drew is Roman's bitch. Elias is a geek. Ziggler is a geek. Lashley never wins when it matters. I don't even know any other heels right now after that. They'd all be lower card I guess. They really need to let the bad guys start winning some damn matches. Cleanly too.

Drew, Joe, Braun, KO, etc. They all have top heel potential. But WWE just doesn't know how to book them well.

Re: WWE doesn't have a single credible heel anymore

owens is fantastic and could be a main eventer with a month of proper booking. he's not beyond saving. lars sullivan is a heel if he isnt injured, they book him well and dont have him talk.

plus, Alexa is still able to produce great work as either heel or face (or anything in between, such is her amazing talent )

Alexa Bliss - global megastar, future first ballot hall of famer and Undisputed SD and RAW champ. watch out becky, shes gonna take your crown.

(sigh) oh, Alexa, how magnificent you are. Don't you ever get tired of being so perfect?

Lars is out for a year.

Charlotte and Alexa work because they actually win. I should have specified the mens division.

Shane McMahon.


He's the best in the world and the top heel in WWE.

yeah its amusing how 10 years ago the divas were the piss break division and now i actually prefer watching the womens storylines develop. kofi vs dolph for the wwe title - lol.

did not know that about lars. what about Strowman? last i saw of him it took 3 guys to pin him on raw in that #1 contenders bout.

Re: WWE doesn't have a single credible heel anymore

This is such a dumb take. The problem is less "credible heels" and more the ones they choose to invest in.

Heels don't need to win cleanly isn't this requirement for being a heel, that's just op's preference. On most occasions that kills their heat.

yeah heels should win IMPORTANT matches, doesn't necessarily matter how they win. winning clean over JTG on superstars is not a way to build a heel. heck almost all of hhh's 02-04 wins involved evolution. i think a heel should be a combination of winning a few tv matches clean to establish at least a bit of a threat, playing dirty in main events and not losing every big match. monster heel booking should be reserved for people who really could use it
