Yes, I watch and enjoy pro wrestling. No, I’m not ashamed to admit it.
Are the story lines and wins pre-planned? Sure. Would I classify it as “fake”? The story line and angles, yes…the injuries and actual danger the wrestlers risk every day, not on your life. There are many spots and moves that truly take a great amount of athleticism and that can lead to being hurt more so than in most any other sport.
So, anyway…now that that’s out of the way (because this topic isn’t about debating whether or not it’s real), I have a question:
What are some wrestlers who have never been babyfaces?
For those who don’t know, that term basically means “good guy”.
I was watching a few vintage shows and PPVs today and I saw Ted Debiase wrestling and realized, he’s one of the few that was just always a heel/bad guy. He never really had a run where the fans liked and cheered for him (and I’m not counting times when the wrestler has made appearances wayyyyy later, for hall of fame things and stuff like that–I mean when they were actively wrestling in story lines).
Another one (although I’m less sure of this one after he went to TNA) is Jeff Jarrett. Wasn’t he always a heel? At least in the WWE, he was, not sure if he’s recently been a good guy or not (in TNA)
Anyway, can you think of any others who were always a bad guy?
Consequently, can you think of any wrestlers who have always been “faces/good” and never bad? I can’t think of one for that one unless you count some obscure wrestler like Duke “the Dumpster” Droese.
