The Professor is known for rooting for Heels for really two reasons.  First, he likes irritating the crowd and creating noise.  In the Professor’s opinion, this helps the show.  Especially in a room of 60 people.  Should a Heel not be acknowledged for his great qualities?  The Professor rates a professional wrestler on the following attributes:

  1. Technical Skill
  2. Promo / Mic Skills
  3.  Showmanship
  4.  Athleticism
  5.  Consistent Improvement
