    Reigns will probably continue to be the best heel in WWE, but there's chances for Britt Baker and MJF to have strong years in AEW as heels.

    Best heel, for me, Sami Zayn. He makes you hate him, good matches, you really want to hate him.

    Re: 2021 Heel of the Year Ongoing Discussion

    Yeah I'll give Sami Zayn a shout for this. Dont think he has a realistic chance of winning due to his spot on the card being so low.

    Its Reigns for the taking though.

    Once MJF gets out of this surprisingly dreadful Inner Circle/Pinnacle feud he could run away with this though if booked right. Dude still show glimpses of the MJF that got so much hype and love early on, he's just been stuck in a bit of a rut booking wise since the Cody feud.

    Who's been the better top heel champ with a long run and lots of marquee matches with different guys - Roman Reigns or Kenny Omega? I'd lean towards the former

    Re: 2021 Heel of the Year Ongoing Discussion

    I think Omega’s run had potential to be much better than it actually is. I think all the interference and being accompanied by cartoonish oily goons, Cleaner cheerleaders (I know they’re finished now, but it went on quite a bit longer than it should’ve) and the Bucks trying to look sillier every week, has made him feel more small-time than a belt-collecting BITW heel champ should feel. I like aspects of it, but it comes across quite midcard to me, and I think if it was just him and Callis the whole act would be better off and have no negative effect on the eventual Hangman title win.

    I'd agree. Plus the Belt Collector thing has been really forced since the start. You get the belts then the nickname, not the other way round.

    I’d take Reigns’ matches over Omega’s, and when it comes to their character work, no doubt I take Roman over Omega too.

    Re: 2021 Heel of the Year Ongoing Discussion

    Omega has been really underwhelming, at least gimmick wise. The belt collector thing is really forced. And he's surrounded by so many poor characters/wrestlers. He doesn't always feel like a Main Event heel as a result, at time she feels like a comedy act with how bad the Bucks and Good Brothers are.

    I'd give it to Reigns as well. He's been one of the only worthwhile talking points of the company for the whole year.
