Being What's Best For Business
Benoit, Eddie, Owen, all come to mind but they were all faces at the time.
He had a potential storyline with ken kennedy while he died. He just had a face turn and on the smackdown before his death he got hit with a chair by kennedy, dont think there would have been a swerve after that. He definitely was a face when he died.Eddie Guerrero was not a face when he died. He had just come off the feud with Rey Rey if I remember correctly and he was in a feud with Batista where he was clearly sucking up to him so he could steal the world title. Sure he acted more face like, but I'd say his character was still very much heel. Hell, the whole storyline was Batista saying he couldn't trust Eddie.
Benoit was not a heel. Possibly he may have exhibited certain heel-like tendencies if he made it to the scheduled match, but thats highly debateable. Especially since he was tagging with Punk as a face team only 2 weeks earlier.Benoit was a heel when he died. Feuding with a face CM Punk for the vacated ECW title.
