5 Best Active Heel WWE Superstars In 2023

10 months ago By Sports Desk

In the dynamic realm of WWE, where storylines ebb and flow with the pulsating energy of the crowd, the transformation of wrestlers from heroes to villains and vice-versa is not just frequent but also a testament to their versatility. While the classic babyfaces had their shining moments in the past, the modern era belongs to the heels, who have not just made their mark but have taken over the stage with their malevolent charisma. Let’s dive deep into the prominent heels of 2023 that have turned the tables in WWE.

Dominik Mysterio’s evolution is undoubtedly a shocking yet riveting turn in WWE narratives. Initially seen as the budding protege standing in the shadows of his legendary father, Dominik defied expectations by aligning himself with The Judgement Day, revealing a darker side. His transition drew parallels with Eddie Guerrero’s iconic ‘Latino Heat’ phase, showcasing a marked improvement in his in-ring skills and tactics. Dominik’s alliance with Rhea Ripley further elevated his position, cementing his status as one of the most despised figures in today’s WWE universe. Dominik’s transformation from an underdog to the most notorious heel is something that has fans on the edge of their seats.

On the other hand, Austin Theory has made a reputation for himself by exuding an air of arrogance since his debut. His unexpected assault on Jeff Hardy made it clear that he was not there to play by the rules. McMahon’s backing only added to his overconfidence, propelling him into thinking of himself as this era’s John Cena. This comparison, however, has often been met with disdain from fans, mainly due to Theory’s penchant for underhanded tactics, contrasting sharply with Cena’s righteous persona.

Gunther, dubbed “The Mighty Austrian,” is a force to be reckoned with. His merciless in-ring strategies and unyielding dominance are reminiscent of WWE’s colossal figures. While most heels resort to deceit, Gunther’s raw power and brute strength are enough to keep his competitors at bay. His undefeated streak and impressive reign as the Intercontinental Champion speaks volumes about his prowess and makes him a figure of intimidation in the WWE landscape.

The list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning Roman Reigns, the Tribal Chief, who has entrenched himself as WWE’s most formidable heel for three consecutive years. Guided by the cunning Paul Heyman, Roman has utilized every trick in the book, from mind games to leveraging family ties, to maintain his stronghold on the championship. His unparalleled skills, combined with devious strategies, have placed him in a league of his own, with many even referring to him as one of the greatest in WWE history.

Topping our list is Rhea Ripley, a powerhouse in the women’s division, whose alliance with The Judgement Day has propelled her to unparalleled heights. Known for her sheer dominance and unparalleled strength, Rhea has single-handedly decimated her competition. Her reign as the World Women’s Champion is marked by the trail of opponents who have faced her wrath. Her role in the Judgement Day isn’t limited to the women’s division, as she frequently overshadows her male counterparts, particularly evident in her assistance to Dominik, resulting in his victory as the North American Champion. Rhea’s omnipresence and undeniable influence make her the most menacing heel in WWE today.

In conclusion, 2023 has been a testament to the rise of heels in WWE, with these top five superstars leading the pack. Their unpredictable actions, fierce rivalries, and gripping storylines have redefined the wrestling scene, promising more twists and turns in the years to come.
