That's what happens with Vickie. Thus, she's a good heel. If she were a bad heel, there would be no boos or cheers at all either way.
But do people tune in to see Vickie Guerreo get beat up? Does she draw money?
A good heel is also a good draw. Without Edge, do you think she would get half the heat she does? I just don't think so. It's not hard for an evil GM to get booed. But it still doesn't make her a great heel in my eyes.
It's kind of like Mike Adamale or Michael Cole. People boo them because they just don't want to see or hear them.
On the other, people LIKE to hate Edge and like to watch him perform.
I can't really explain it any better. Some of these things are just intangibles.
I will say that Vickie has gotten better, but she still grates on my ears when she poorly reads lines someone just wrote for her.
