Not too many come to mind that spent enough time in the business to play both roles. Some wrestlers I thought were much better heels than baby faces or vice versa. So how many wrestling stars or legends never played the opposite role of heel or baby face? THe two that come to mind right off the top are

Ricky Steamboat
Kerry Von Erich

Not sure any of the Von Erich other Fritz having heel time. JYD is a good one. Not sure if he had any heel time or not and as far as I know the Shiek was never a face.

Sans Lubricant -  I don't remember Dusty Rhodes ever being heel but I'm not familiar with his florida days.


Not as an active wrestler, but Dusty was a member of the nWo.

Dusty Rhodes had a heel run with Dick Mirdoch as the Texas Outlaws if I'm not mistaken.

Mysterio
Tito Santana
Jeff Hardy
Bushwackers

Heel:
Barbarian
Hercules
Warlord
Haku/Meng
Nasty Boyz
Raven

Was Greg Gagne ever a bad guy? Or Jim Brunzell?

Barbarian and Warlord were faces for a short while in the WWF, they came in and feuded with then heel Demolition right off the bat.

Hardy was Will o the Wisp in Omega. He was also in the Brood for a short time I think.

They feuded in Detroit in the 70, but I'm not sure who was the face, if either.

Abby was a face in WCW for a short time against Cactus Jack.

You are right about janetty, I forgot about the New Rockers, just like everyone else wishes they could.

How about:::

Sid Vicious? Guy never really had a "face turn" that I can think of.

Dan Spivey?

Rick Rude?

I would say Muta in the US but he had some loud ass pops when the Horsemen turned on Sting and he was tagged in durign the cage match. Soooo...probably not.

Alot of these have been covered but the ones that haven't were

Nasty Boyz had their brief face runs in WWF

Mullet was right about Misterio

Dangerboy was right about Wisp and the Hardy's in the Brood

Flairsjobber is dead on too about Snuka, he also was in the Dangerous Alliance as well as feuded with Flair for the US title.

I think towards the end of his career Bockwinkle tried to go out a ace but I can't remember who he fought but I think it was Zybsko.

Sid also had an early face run as Humongus as Shane Douglas cousin if I'm not mistaken besides his Justice run.

Alot of good additions too with Tito, Robert Gibson, Rude,I know I'm missing some.
