Default Double Switch Moments?

By "double switch" I mean a match where wrestler a turned from face to heel and wrestler b turned from heel to face, or vica-versa, with both men switching places.

I dont seem to remember this happening many times, only a handfull.

Bret Hart turned heel while Austin turned face by the end of their WM 13 match.

Flair and Hogan did a double turn at WCW Uncensored 1999 (I could be wrong about this one), wasn't it during the First Blood match that ended in a pinfall ? classic WCW stuff

Mankind vs. Rock, Survivor Series 98'. Mankind was being groomed by Vince to be a champion while the Rock was the babyface trying to get a shot at it, and by the end of the night it was the other way around and Rock became Corporate Rock.

Any others out there? Any favorites?

When Hall & Nash went over to WCW many heels instantly became face due to them appearing, not the same but yeah.

Also Shane vs. Vince, Shane was the obvious face and Vince the obvious heel at WMX7. But as soon as the invasion angle began they flipped positions.

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.

Angle was not a heel then, he turned face before the Invasion PPV, as you can tell from the PPV Angle gets a gigantic pop.

I'll probably not let this go but CM Punk/John Cena 2011 should have been a double turn, it was setup so well for it.

He got a pop because he was on Team WWF, but his character was still a heel. Up to that point his whole schtick during the Invasion had consisted of ripping on Austin and bickering with Undertaker over how Angle should be the leader.

Probably not as memorable as the ones most of you have mentioned, but Brock/Cena.

They feuded in 2003 where Cena was the heel and Brock was the face.

Now in 2012 it's vice-versa.

I meant that they switched in the same night or sometime very close to one another.

I still distinctly remember him being a face before the invasion, merely weeks before the PPV. I'm too lazy to search for an episode of RAW a week or two before Invasion so I'll take your word for it.
