    That still isn't heel.

        Never said it was completely 'heel', just said it definitely contained elements of what a heel does - for instance, arrogantly writes off all competition as 'BS', and displays a disconnected sense of entitlement which the audience doesn't appreciate, before exiting before anyone has time to respond.

                Would have to characterise him in that promo as the disrespectful antagonist... so I disagree. Maybe not a heel in terms of cheating, blindside attacking, etc, but in a historic sense certainly the antagonist and the one disrespecting the competition.

                    Didn't Cena in his contact signing with AJ say something like these people who boo me can't be me even on their best day. That is not a statement a full blown babyface would make.
