Re: Double Switch Moments?
I'm amazed no one ever mentions Stone Cold Steve Austin and Kurt Angle at Invasion as even though Kurt Angle was part of Team WWE he was still a heel and Stone Cold Steve Austin had turned face on the last Raw or SmackDown before the Invasion PPV. As everyone knows Stone Cold Steve Austin turned on Team WWE after hitting a Stunner on Kurt Angle for Booker T to get the pin and then the next night on Raw we saw Stone Cold Steve Austin become the leader of The Alliance and Kurt Angle had turned babyface from the night before.
Obvious ones are Stone Cold Steve Austin/Bret Hart at WrestleMania 13, The Rock/Mick Foley at Survivor Series in 1998, Hulk Hogan/Ric Flair at Uncensored in 1999 and one of my favorites which we even had a thread on here for a couple of days ago Demoliton/Powers Of Pain back at Survivor Series in 1988. No sure if it counts but watching Raw from early 1998 through to Summerslam recently i noticed that the Triple H/Owen Hart feud saw them kind of do a double turn although not an instant one as Owen Hart had been the babyface from December of 1997 with Triple H very much a heel as a member of D-Generation X but soon after Triple H seemed to turn babyface without an actual turn as did Owen Hart turn heel without an actual turn and we saw a lot more from them in the altered roles as part of the D-Generation X/The Nation feud throughout 1998.
