In professional wrestling, the "heel" is the villain who gets booed by the audience, absorbing all the hate and making the "face," the hero, look better. And last night on the RNC stage, Ted Cruz had his heel moment as delegates on the floor jeered and hissed at the Texas senator and former Republican candidate for president. Looking like a blob fish in an expensive suit, Cruz took the podium and greeted the delegates with a wave and a thin smile. He then delivered a slithery speech about the state of the country and never even endorsed Trump. The side effect: This made Trump, in some ways, the face—for a little while at least. Within 23 minutes, Cruz turned a national political event into an episode of the '80s WWF staple "Piper's Pit."
