5 WWE matches where the heels were cheered
Despite all the claims that professional wrestling is fake (for God's sake, yes, we know it's scripted), there is still a very real sense of excitement that comes with enjoying the program. One of the most crucial aspects of this enjoyment is the babyface vs heel dynamic that is present in most - if not all - matches and feuds.
After all, there has to be a good guy and there has to be a bad guy. You get the fans to cheer for the hero who does things the right way by overcoming all the odds and get them to boo the dastardly villain who uses underhanded means to achieve his goals.
Except, the fans don't always play by the rules. There have been many instances in the history of the WWE where the fans have just plain refused to boo a heel. So, without any further ado, here is our list of 5 WWE matches where the heels where cheered:
#5 AJ Styles - Summerslam 2016
I think it is now a well-established fact that AJ Styles simply will not be booed in the WWE. The man is just too good of a wrestler. And, this fact was most apparent in August 2016 when he went up against John Cena at WWE Summerslam 2016.
This was the pivotal moment in AJ's burgeoning WWE career. He had just recently turned heel to engage in a program with John Cena and we all know how those feuds usually go. In a show of solidarity, the entire WWE Universe got behind The Phenomenal One and he delivered in a big big way.
