In professional wrestling, a face (or babyface) is a hero. Face wrestlers are portrayed as moral, honest, and stalwart characters, who are typically opposed by a heel.
Because professional wrestling is as much a soap opera as a sport, wrestlers are required to portray larger-than-life characters. Typically, wrestlers act as either a face (a wrestler an audience is supposed to love) or a heel (a wrestler an audience is supposed to love to hate). Whether they're a face or a heel, each wrestler is attempting to get over with audiences, securing their spot in pro wrestling's overarching narrative.
Many wrestlers alternate between being a face or a heel at various points throughout their careers. For example, The Big Show, who has been wrestling for 25 years, turns face or heel roughly 1.5 times per year.
