The air filled with sadness and grief when sorrow sang softly and sweet.

It's not exclusive but all heels also don't automatically like each other, either. Granted, they mostly do, but it's not a given, as we've seen even recently with Big Show threatening to KO Ziggler if he tried cashing in on him. But when it comes to faces, WWE seems to operate under this dome of cluelessness where every babyface smiles and is happy and loves picnics and flowers, and everything is forgiven once a turn occurs.

I know, I saw that when it came out, but I was talking about an actual turn on television, not on camera. I was joking anyway, although it seriously wouldn't surprise me.
