Re: Analyze this: Heel/Face turns on the mic
Stranger, Chapo did you guys watch the link I posted? That's the kind of wrestling I grew up on. You never knew what was going to happen every week. Makes me laugh about the ECW chants everytime I hear them. I just think the northeast was so used to the WWF style of tv sqaush matches that ECW's wild southern style was revolutionary.
Anyways....Stranger your Forgotten Legends articles have been so storng lately I have not felt the need to chime in. But I will try to do better.
As far as another interview turn....How about the Slaughter face turn in 1984? IMO one of if not the greatest turn ever. He basically was still a heel when he and Sheik had a moment where neither would move aside while Sheik was leaving a squash and Slaughter was arriving for his.
Then Slaughter went to the ring in spite of some cheers and wrestled like a heel, going so far to hold the Cobra Clutch long after the submission. Then the next week Slaughter comes to the ring and starts badmouthing the Shiek and leads the Pledge of Allegiance.
The whole thing is on you tube and very interesting. Slaughter was as hot as Hogan in 84. It is a real shame Vince broke some promises and Slaughter left for Pro Wrestling USA.
