These superstars were the face of WWE in their respective eras

WWE is the storytelling landscape of some of the biggest and most talented in-ring competitors who portray their respective roles of ‘babyface’ and ‘heel’ relating to being a good guy and bad guy respectively.

In the case of Babyfaces, the global juggernaut has seen an array of stars portray that role for the majority of their careers, captivating the audience relating to them and visioning them as role models. Here are the top five biggest babyfaces in WWE of all time:

5. Cody Rhodes

The latest addition to this elite list of the biggest good guys in WWE has been The American Nightmare Cody Rhodes. Ever since he made his return to WWE in 2022, the company has been pushing him over the moon as the next biggest babyface of this generation who has a deep connection with the fanbase, built a compelling narrative upon his comeback, and impressed them with his hard work and resilience.

The biggest feat to define Cody Rhodes as the top babyface was the thunderous ovation by the fans upon his victory over Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40 and winning the WWE championship to ‘Finish The Story.’

4. Daniel Bryan

Around the year 2013, Daniel Bryan was coming up as one of the biggest babyfaces in his battle against The Authority who did not envision him as a big attraction. But Bryan’s in-ring performances and popularity garnered him major support from fans leading to him getting his opportunity for a main event title match at WrestleMania 30.

Bryan lived up to their expectations that night when he defeated Triple H in the opening bout of the show and then went on to beat both Randy Orton and Batista to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, dubbed as ‘The Miracle on Bourbon Street’ in one of the most memorable moments in the history of the show.

3. Bret Hart

Bret Hart captivated the audience by being the true epitome of a babyface who scratched and clawed his way to transition from a tag team wrestler to a main event star and won multiple championships and accolades in the process.

Moreover, his status as a top babyface was established during his heated rivalry with the evident heel, Shawn Michaels in the mid-1990s while emerging as a huge inspiration for fans across the globe.

2. John Cena

Ever since John Cena transitioned from his rapper gimmick to the Big Match John we know today, he proved to be the ultimate babyface for WWE around the mid-2000s.

Despite garnering polarizing reactions from fans, Cena was always portrayed as the Superman-inspired figure for young children with his Make-a-Wish endeavors, positive attitude and immense love and respect for the fans despite their reactions, making him a babyface for the better part of his career that made him a global icon.
