    no hbk?

    • John

      I agree ….. I thought the super kick through the barber shop window woulda clinched it. He made an awesome heel.

  • Charles

    Absolutely staggered at Regal not being on this list. As a fellow Englishman I may be biased but, I truly can’t believe some of the people on that list instead of him.

  • Sjenttivensventa

    As always this list is bogus as can be

    • Hillbilly Jim

      Didn’t see Benoit….

      • Ken

        Point. You'd think he'd be at number one.

  • http://www.facebook.com/gilbertjgonzalez Gilbert

    How about Stone Cold Steve Austin? The Rock? WTF?!

    • Andrew Ace

      They were wack heels

    Iran Iran Iran !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • buddah5050

    Randy Savage #49?!?! What a freaking joke!!! Especially with likes of Vickey Guerrero and Mark Henery right above him!!!

    • mm

      vicke should be top 10

  • Simon Veitch

    Batista as a "top villain"? Granted bottom of the list, but wasn't he pretty much only heel while in Evolution? There are plenty of people who should have made this list but didn't. Kurt Angle for one, and definitely Regal, but of course, WWE would rather we forget Angle is alive :P

    • _JIM_

      Batista was heel when he “quit” WWE on his last feud. At least I think he was.
      These lists are always somewhat fixed anyways. WWE guys are always at the top and in more than other promotions talent. I don’t think Regal should be on a list of the top 50 anythings in wrestling history. Maybe when it comes to the most talented in the ring but that’s not what this is. There have been so many heels in the history of wrestling that its hard for me to put Regal in a top 50. He was never that over with the fans nor was he relevant for any significant amount of time. He’s good, but not top 50 IMO.

  • Patrick Peralta

    I agree with Regal it is insulting he is not even on the list…he was a great Villian. I liked him as a heel and he was great during his feud with Larry Zybisco in WCW.

    • Dave Barton

      Speaking of Larry Z…1980 called & wants to know how he failed to make the list! His turn on Bruno was legendary!!

      • Lenny

        1980??? Dude I wasn’t even born yet! Da fuhk!

  • Bault16

    Regal didn’t deserve a spot honestly.

  • skeeber04

    Brock lesnar????

    • asshole-97

      BROCK LESNAR is not a villin he is one heartless mass of a human wrecking machine that will hurt you,.remenber what he did to the one legged boy that wanted to be a wreslter when he left the wwe the first time.as far as hhh goes he better be at the top of his game.

  • skeeber04

    Lesnar is almost at the end???

  • Bigdaddychuck

    No undertaker? How can that be?

    • Groveside06@Yahoo.com

      he is number 22….

      • Bigdaddychuck

        Ok I missed it but he should be way higher.. Makes no sense he is 22.. He was the minister of darkness!!

  • Laterial

    I wonder if WWE officials remember the likes of Finlay and Gangrel? For what’s it worth, I’d have even preferred the ministry of darkness being listed as one just to include the likes of HBK, SCSA, The Rock, and hell, even The Miz.

  • Ian P.

    Ummm… Damien Demento? Really?

    ;)

  • unknown

    how is Paul Heyman 35? he should be in the top 5

  • Laterial

    Eric Bischoff anyone?

    • XKonn247

      He’s in there. Why don’t people read before commenting?

      • Ken

        Takes too much time in this busy busy world of ours.

  • Wwe4L76

    Stupid stupid stupid

    • Laterial

      It actually takes no time at all. I read the list twice. I apologize, I think I was deterred by how low of a number he had. Especially since he garnered so much heat.

  • Mr Wrestling #3

    If The Great Malenko is not on the list then it's worthless

    • Lenny

      I wanna know why Stephanie and Shane aren’t on the list? I wanna know why Ralphus is not on the list! I also wanna know why Vince Russo is not on that list! Come to think of it, why isn’t the Goobly Gooker not on this list??? This list is a joke!

  • Rafeek

    Stan Hansen, bruiser brody, should’ve been on the list.

  • Hardy

    What about Nash? He was pretty good as a heel?

  • Lee Douglas

    Bogus is a correct term. These people in charge evidently weren't at ringside in the 60's when Killer Kowalski and Dick the bruiser tore Madison Square Garden down. Though the Brusier wasn't a McMahon Sr. regular Kowalski was. I was there the night that Kowalski was almost rushed by fans when he nearly " anhilliated Edouard Carpentier. Or the Night that The Bruiser and Jerry Graham were arrested and tried for inciting the fans at the garden to rioting after a match with Rocca and Perez. The WWE has taken the heel out of wrestling heels. They wouldn't know a real villain if they were bitten by one.

  • Guest

    No Mr Fuji???

  • Barfuzz

    what about George the Animal Steele?

  • Barfuzz

    Captain Lou Albano?Without him and Piper there would never have been the WWE as it is now.I also agree with what about MR.Fuji when he managed Demolition.Moolah,Brian Pillman

  • http://g Bruno

    Note eru body can make the list and thru cd not satisfy everybody.

  • England87

    Look, just about everyone who’s ever worked the ring has been a heel at some point in there career so how can you really even list them, who ever wrote this list wasted about about a hour of there life!

  • guest

    Buddy Rogers, Johnny Valentine, The Kangaroos, Skull Murphy, Karl von Hess, Pamper Firpo, Gorilla Monsoon, Tolos Brothers, Waldo Von Erich, Baba the Giant, John Studd, Sgt slaughter…on and on! the 60's and 70's rule for bad guys!

  • Kevin

    We could make an entirely new website just arguing about this list. There are so many things wrong with it that I don't even know where to begin. People not on it who should be, people on it who shouldn't be, people in the wrong position. And on, and on, and on.
