The characters today are more watered down then those from the 70's and 80's, yet back then the good guy's were the fan favorites. It used to be odd for you to like the bad guy. Although now it's completely changed. If you like any of the good guy's (not named Daniel Bryan), your considered a child or an idiot.































This goes for all forms of media as well. Breaking Bad is a pretty good example where Walter White committed horrendous crimes yet everybody loved him. Heath Ledger as the Joker in The Dark Knight was the most liked actor as well. I just find it weird how our culture has completely flipped the script in such a short time span.































When did being bad, become cooler then being good? I have my own theories, but I'd like to know yours.















@Mr. Yaw: I didn't mean "everybody" liked the heel's and everybody hates the faces. I just meant the majority. The majority now loves bad guy's/ anti-heros over good guys.

In my opinion heel wrestlers are always more entertaining then face wrestlers















for example triple h suits the heel best















randy orton people love him as a heel not as a face ....batista he is best as heel .....















And then their are face wrestlers like daniel bryan who is extremely boring .....john cena is not boring to be honest his promos are always entertaining ..

when WWE decided that they had to train wrestlers in-house instead of signing outside talent.































FUN FACT: Bill Demott is not a good trainer. nexus was a failure.

Not all faces are "lame", and not all heels are "cool". It depends on which wrestlers the fans are into.

Superstar Billy Graham was a Cool Heel during The 1970's. The Fabulous Freebirds were Cool Heels during The 1970's, 1980's and 1990's. The Nature Boy Buddy Rogers was a Cool Heel during The 1950's, 1960's, 1970's. Cool Heels have been around for a long time. Those are jst a few examples.

You have to remeber we are in a new time and a new era. We're in an era where people loves to see people get hurt and jumped. We live in a society where it's okay to verbally abuse people and assault people with two or more people. In life, even in music now and days it's become the cool thing to do. Even tv shows that kids watch shows the bad guy as the beloved person and the good guy as a lame.































Real pro wrestlings fans like myself mirrors wrestling as my alter ego side of life. You have the cool kids, or most popular over who's winning all the championships and getting all of the attention. You have the heels who are like jerks to others and people laugh and except it because it just feels right.































Beside doing the right thing and trying to earn respect has become so played out. Hell I use to be a big Power Rangers fan and I always wanted to see them win. Here and there I want the heel or the monster to actually get the win and destroy a ranger.















































I hope the answer is good enough.

Because, these days, people struggle playing a good babyface due to lack of charisma. It's much harder to get the people to hate you than love you.
