Elias has been making a name for himself since his arrival on the main roster and has quickly become one of the most improved Superstars in the company today.
He’s truly underrated and is one of the best heels currently, in my opinion.
His promos and musical performances are very amusing to watch and he really knows how to work up a crowd by throwing the odd insult or two.
I really believe Elias has potential to become a top star in the WWE, however, he is yet to win a Championship but with a little more time, we will all “Walk With Elias”.
4. Kevin Owens
The break-up of “JeriKO” or as Kevin Owen’s prefers, “Team Kevin & Chris” was heart-breaking but it helped transform Owens into the ruthless heel that he is today.
The man headbutted “The Chairman” Vince McMahon and annihilated Vince’s son, Shane, so if that doesn’t cement him as one of the top heels in the WWE today, then I don’t know what does.
Whether as “The Face of America” or simply as “K.O.”, Owens is always looking for a fight and he has had some great feuds and matches against the likes of Dean Ambrose, John Cena and SmackDown Live Commissioner, Shane McMahon.
Owens’ promo work is also something to be appreciated as he’s certainly not afraid to make his voice heard.
But how could we forget his partnership with long-time friend, Sami Zayn. The two have great chemistry together and each week they are so entertaining to watch.
Now that Zayn and Owens are on Monday Night RAW, let’s hope they are booked well and for goodness sake, give Sami Zayn a championship. Even a 10-year-old kid has more main roster titles then he does.
3. Jinder Mahal
“The Modern Day Maharaja” Jinder Mahal shocked the world when he won the WWE Championship for the first time in his career after defeating Randy Orton at Backlash 2017.
Although it may be cliché, the foreign villain gimmick works naturally for Mahal as he looks the part and garners a lot of genuine heat from the crowd each week.
A few years back, no-one would have ever thought that Jinder Mahal would win the most prized possession in the WWE.
But, as a changed man, he worked extra hard and proved everybody wrong by becoming one of the top heels in the company today.
Since moving to Monday Night RAW, things haven’t been going too well for Mahal as he lost the United States Championship to Jeff Hardy and also lost a singles match to Chad Gable.
But it’s still early, so who knows what’s next for “The Modern Day Maharaja”.
2. The Miz
There is only word that describes The Miz as a heel and that word is “awesome”.
For years, The A-Lister has been showing us why he still has the “It” factor with great in-ring ability and amazing promo work. Just watch his promo on Talking Smack and you will see why.
Whether he’s paired up with Damien Mizdow, his wife, Maryse or The Miztourage, he’s always convincing in his role as a cocky, self-absorbed heel and he sure knows how to get a crowd worked up.
Every little detail from cheap tactics to mocking Daniel Bryan’s Yes! Kicks just makes you hate the guy.
Speaking of which, now that The Miz has switched to the blue brand, things are going to get real interesting with his reignited rivalry with Daniel Bryan.
1. Shinsuke Nakamura
Since his shocking heel turn at WrestleMania 34, Shinsuke Nakamura has been killing it lately as a heel… or killing AJ Styles’ manhood.
He has gone from delivering his signature “knee to face” to now an “arm to balls” making him not “The King of Strong Style” but “The King of Low Blows” or simply, “The Nutcracker”.
With all these low blows, I hope poor Styles was done having kids… not that he had a choice or anything.
Everything from Nakamura’s facial expressions and unpredictable mannerisms to him forgetting the English language is just brilliant and his epic new theme song (which we can’t sing along to anymore) only adds to the brilliance.
