WWE Superstars Who Never Turned Heel

WWE offers a unique combination of ‘sports’ and ‘entertainment’ for the consumption of millions of viewers around the world. WWE superstars entertain the fans with their diverse take on the proverbial heel versus face feud. The wrestling lore is filled with tales of performers who switched sides frequently, case in point: The Big Show. Despite this constant rewriting of characters, there are superstars who never turned heel during their entire career. That being said, here are four WWE superstars who never transitioned into a heel role.

Bruno Sammartino

Bruno Sammartino is the icon among icon. Bruno Sammartino remains a towering presence in the world of pro wrestling today. The former WWWF Champion had a loyal following that kept him a babyface throughout his legendary career.

Bruno Sammartino was the face of the company and their top champion for a record 2,803 day. The Italian Strongman squashed his longtime beef with Vince McMahon and was inducted into WWE’s Hall of Fame in 2018.

The Ultimate Warrior

Warrior played a heel character during his stint with WCCW in 1986. Vince McMahon, of course, had other plans for the future WWE Hall of Famer. The plans worked and “The Ultimate Warrior” became one the most popular superstars of the Golden Era.

Warrior left WWE on bad terms but buried the hatchet with Vince during the first part of 2010s. He received a Hall of Fame induction in 2014. Sadly, he passed away just a day after delivering his emotional comeback speech in front of the WWE Universe on RAW.

Ricky Steamboat

Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat was a fan favorite. Steamboat was a gifted performer who have numerous classics against the likes of “Macho Man” Randy Savage and “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair. Steamboat is one of the few superstars who never turned heel in their careers.

At one point, Steamboat wanted to turn heel and pitched to Pat Patterson about it but the first-ever Intercontinental Champion shot down the idea and told the Dragon that turning on the fans would ruin his career. The rest, as they say, is history.

Rey Mysterio

Like the Ultimate Warrior before him, Rey Mysterio briefly tuned heel in WCW. Rey Mysterior turned heel and formed Filthy Animals with Eddie Guerrero and Billy Kidman as the stable’s co-founders. This was Mysterio's only heel turn in his career.

Mysterio has been portraying the underdog babyface for years now and fans can’t imagine him in another role. Even though he is an active competitor, we are willing to bet that the high-flyer will end his career as a beloved babyface.
