11 WWE Heels That Were So Good They Became Babyfaces

10. Chris Jericho

The Ayatollah of Rock €˜n€™ Rollah may strike you as an interesting addition to this list. He€™s someone who was a good heel in WCW and his very early WWF days, then became a hugely popular babyface, and went one better and became the single greatest heel of the past decade in 2008. As the trash-talking, fun-poking cowardly heel, the WCW and early WWF Jericho was massively entertaining. He was a heel who wasn€™t afraid to embrace their cowardice and throw a tantrum or two, something a lot of 'cool heels' are afraid of. But, as is usally the case with such an entertaining bad guy, it wasn€™t long before began hearing cheers and he quickly became one of the biggest babyfaces on the roster. Spewing vitriol, cracking wise, and mocking some of the biggest and baddest heels on the roster, Jericho was at one point the second biggest biggest babyface in the company (during Steve Austin€™s absence). In fact, some would even say that the Winnipeg native was equally, if not more, popular than The Rock. In terms of biggest reactions of the past twenty years, you have to seriously consider the huge ovation Jericho received when he defeated Triple for the WWF Championship on an episode of Raw. Y2J was monumentally over as a babyface, there€™s no denying that. What€™s kind of sad, though, is that Jericho never got to have a run with a World Championship as a face (despite being a six-time World Champ overall). Then again, on the flip side of that, Jericho€™s heel work in the late 2000s was simply phenomenal and rightly deserves to receive a great deal of attention when looking back at his career.
