As others have pointed out, we are pretty close to it now. While I understand that one business model (WCW/JCP's) was to have a heel champion with a lengthy reign and make the money in the chase, the classic WWE model was the babyface champion fending off a variety of challengers. As control slips more and more to HHH it seems that WWE is skewing closer and closer to Jim Crockett Promotions booking style.

Have heels ever been this dominant at the top of the card?

WWE Raw Women's Champion: Alexa Bliss (heel)
WWE Smackdown Women's Champion: Naomi (face)
WWE Universal Champion: Brock Lesnar (heel/tweener)
WWE World Heavyweight Champion: Jinder Mahal (heel)
WWE Intercontinental Champion: The Miz (heel)
WWE United States Champion: Kevin Owens (heel)
WWE Raw Tag-Team Champions: Sheamus & Caesaro (heel)
WWE Smackdown Tag-Team Champions: The Usos (heel)
WWE Cruiserweight Champion: Neville (heel)

Affirmative. Late 2003 had all heel champions on Raw. I believe Smackdown is the case as well.

It's only salient now because we have a more titles than ever including the NXT championships. Also, most of the champions suck or are absentee.

Think this was before Taka won the LHW belt

2003?

Triple H WHW, Christian IC, La Resistance Tag, Molly Holly Women's
Lesnar WWE, Eddie US, Benjamin & Haas, Matt Hardy Cruiserweight

Were all heel at the time I think, not sure the times add up

I'll be rooting for Naomi to lose so that we can complete the heel domination. Although a heel turn by Naomi would be just as good.

And you wonder why ratings are down.

Wresting is about good guys beating bad guys.

That's why people turn the tv on.

To see good defeat evil.

Sheamus & Caesaro and Brock Lesnar don't feel like Heels to me
Brock Lesnar's character is that he is "legit" , his status is above terms like Heel or Face at this point
Sheamus and Caesaro feel more like Tweeners
