10 Most Unlikeable WWE Babyfaces Ever

10 worst WWE babyfaces ever!

In wrestling (as in life) it’s a lot easier to get the people to hate you than love you. 

It’s the case whether you’re actively playing the heel or if you’re supposed to be a babyface but are just so gosh darned unlikable. We’ve seen it happen many times over the years, where a babyface – either through bad booking, dodgy storylines or their own natural unpleasantness seeping through – have garnered strong negative reactions, often to the point where they have no choice but to turn rogue. 

These are the 10 Most Unlikeable WWE Babyfaces Ever. 

10. Batista

Dave Batista spent the better part of the first few years of his WWE career playing the mostly silent muscle for other, bigger stars. 

In late 2004, The Animal started to garner babyface reactions when fans took a liking to his penchant for dismantling opponents with his impressive, high-impact offence. 

Fans also sensed that Big Dave might be the man to finally put his superior – Evolution leader Triple H – in his place, which he did by turning on him and then beating him for the World Heavyweight Title at WrestleMania 21. 

After that initial organic success, however, it was often an uphill battle for Batista to remain universally beloved, due in large part to the fact that the man himself didn’t seem entirely comfortable playing the hero and could react viscerally to criticism or unfavourable reactions. 

Much better at playing the heel, Batista’s strongest work came as a bad guy, such as the tremendous run he had in 2010, just before leaving WWE. 

Considering how good he was in the role, it’s amazing that WWE brought him back as a babyface four years later, though it quickly went off the rails and he was back to being a villain before long.
