heel vs heel title changes

2436 Views 24 Replies 17 Participants Last post by  MojoRisin
i'd imagine there has been a fair few in the lesser titles such as the hardcore and that, but has WWE ever had a heel beat a heel for a world championship? just curious to know.

thanks!

Tag Team Championship:
2008: Hawkins and Ryder deafeated Miz/Morrison

When HBK "beat" Bret Hart for the title at Survivor Series '97 they were essentially both heels (though the face/heel dynamic was in the eye of the beholder with that feud, which is part of what made it great).

The only other I can think of is when Hogan took the title off Savage the night after Spring Stampede in '98. Savage was more of a tweener but I think he was still in the nWo so that pretty much makes them both heel.

I'm thinking hard and those are really the only ones I can remember involving a world championship. I'm sure it's happened in matches with multiple participants, but I can't think of any other one-on-one matches.

Shawn Michaels vs. Triple H on December 22, 1997 in an emotional, grueling matchup. It's the kind of match you show to your friends who aren't wrestling fans.

That is honestly one of my all-time favorites.

I'm really not that sure if this would count but, what about Y2J/HHH on RAW in 2000? That was BEFORE HHH "intimidated" Earl Hebnor into reversing the decision.

Oh and for Mr. Soxfan, if you're going to blame someone for getting hax'd, dont blame me, blame Dr. Hax. You wont be alone on that list for long

Seriously though its just a joke :p And sorry for calling you asshole. :sadface

The damage and risks taken by both of their bodies was ridiculous. Michaels had been in cell matches, been in Ironman matches, been in ladder matches, but I don't think he'd ever been in any match so emotionally and physically draining as that.

And Triple H even said that, other than his kids being born, it was the greatest moment of his life. Classic WWE moment.

The fact that you do that ridiculous Garry's Mod-inspired bullshit makes you a tool anyway.

I completely agree. He even was in tears after the match ended.

Another one you might consider heel vs heel was The Rock over Mankind at Survivor Series 98. Because while The Rock was posing as a face, he was in cahoots with Vince the whole time. The match turned Mankind face.

Good point. But are we counting matches for vacant titles?
