I still like Angles face turn on smackdown in about 2001. That was pretty cool. Also I liked when the shield turned
Y'know what?....It's really fucking hot here in Africa. Who knew?....Well me, I have been doing this for almost 5 years

I don't know, what do you guys think?


Na wasn’t a heel turn, was too short term and just a angle to build a feud between Wyatt and Bryan. However I would consider Randy Orton’s short lived alliance with Bray a heel turn.

Best face turns for me would be The Undertaker back in 1992 because what a phenomenon he went on to become and it all began with a great feud with Jake Roberts.

Batista’s slow burn to face when he turned on Triple H and split from Evolution was expertly done.

Most of the great face turns happened organically I mean can anyone remember the exact point when Steve Austin or The Rock officially became babyfaces?

I’m gonna go a little older on ya. The face turn (one of many) that Ric Flair did after a match with I believe Ricky Steamboat was classic. After the match Flair was doing a interview and Terry Funk wanted to challenge him for the belt. Flair told him that the NWA has a top ten and that was what he went by for contenders. Terry , not liking the answer, pile drove Flair cause damage to his neck . Flair , after recovering excepted his challenge and defeated Funk. Early WCW/NWA days. Lots of fantastic memories of wrestlers people have forgotten, Tommy “Wildfire” Rich , Blackjack Mulligan. Those Mid Atlantic days from the 80’s with Crockett was fun to watch.

Damn man that is an oldie. Back from when I was a kid, but I never saw anything but the WWF back then.

I never got to saw any WWF until the late 80’s to early 90’s , I was a NWA for years probably up until the Monday night wars then I was constantly flipping back n forth

I rarely saw any early WCW and that was all I really remember seeing outside of the WWF until Nitro debuted. At which point I was hooked on the Bischoff era of WCW, and watched almost no WWF until after WCW went downhill in 2000.

I watch almost entirely WWE these days, but I still don't consider myself a loyalist by any means. I would kill for a new NWA/WCW to really step up and become real competition for the WWE. However I really didn't like TNA at their highest, and RoH, as much as I want to like them too, just don't quite have it yet, and I don't know if they ever will. New Japan might be good, from what I've seen of it, it IS, but I don't like it being locked behind a pay-wall so until they get onto general cable, I'll likely not give it a whole lot of a chance.


As far as face turns are concerned, I actually would like to state for the record that I think Steve Austin's turn was really rather lackluster if you remove Bret Hart's heel turn from the equation. Together, it's the best double turn I've ever seen, but as far as heel turns or face turns are concerned neither is very remarkable without the other.

Well said , I agree. Reason I don’t include Austin was that wrestling was going through a change at the time. The NWO kinda changed the face probably forever. Who or what was classified as a “good guy “ example John Cena or Roman Regins is now booed or hated by the average 20-40 year old fans. Rusev for example a “bad guy” is now cheered. Really a flip of how the business is done now a days. So I’m not sure Austin was ever a true heel like a Ox Baker or Iron Shiek. Ah , it’s all fun to watch though.
