BOTB: Heel Turn

Post by Big Red Machine » Mar 24th, '13, 15:44

We've done this for WOTW, but never for BOTB.

I've got to think that it's between Hogan joining the nWo, Larry Z turning on Bruno, and Punk at Death Before Dishonor III.

Can't really argue with that...

But I'll mention:
-Shawn Micheals putting Marty Jannety through the barbershop window

-While I don't remember a "moment" when Andre the Giant turned heel, Andre turning heel was pretty nuts.

Thaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat's it! So, the "moment" left a little to be desired, but the heel turn was huge (no pun intended)

As for Ventura, this was typical Body Attire for the era. Love it!

it kinda feels lackluster, but imagine it back then seeing andre come out with heenan out of nowhere, it must of been a big shocker, Hogan added a lot of drama IMO, but the shock values must have been great. It would be the equivalent of seeing someone like Sheamus out of nowhere come out with Heyman by his side

What about Vince kickin Brett Hart in the crotch after they smoothed things over on Raw? IDK if it could be called a turn, but after all that happened, it was an epic move...What a jackass...

Yeah, he was in a six man with Luke and Butch against Earthquake and a duo of Jimmy Hart's. Can't remember who though.
