If I were going to make a list of the greatest fake sports in the world, professional wrestling would be #1. Now, just settle down wrestling fans, I’m not knocking it. Pro wrestlers really are great athletes, and what they do really takes skill. I’ve heard it all before, and I’m sold. All I mean by “fake” is that the actual outcome of the competition—who wins, who loses—is rigged. Besides, fake is good. If the outcomes weren’t rigged, if the matches weren’t fake, there couldn’t be really awesome pro wrestling villains (aka “heels”). And the villains are the best part about pro wrestling, if you ask me.
In fact, in honor of these great athletes, the ultimate cheeseballs of the sport, I give you this list of the 9 Greatest Pro Wrestling Villains of All Time. I think everyone can enjoy it, but if you’re a pro wrestling expert and I made some terrible error in compiling the list, please, let me know in the comments section.
