5 WWE heel turns that nobody saw coming
In WWE, there has been no shortage of great babyfaces.
From the constant source of honor that is John Cena to the take-no-prisoners attitude of 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin, there have always been Superstars that the WWE Universe have been able to get behind.
And similarly, there have been plenty of heels for fans to boo, from the cocky demeanor of The Miz, to the evil, ruthless business tactics of Mr. McMahon.
But in some cases, some babyfaces haven't been all too happy playing the good guy, and have turned heel, to the shock of everyone.
Whether it be out of frustration, opportunity or a lack of respect, these Superstars embraces their darker side, in an effort to be the best.
Here are five WWE Superstars who shocked the world by turning heel.
#5 Shawn Michaels
Though Shawn Michaels had been a heel before his first retirement when HBK came back to WWE in 2002, he was a new man.
After finding God, Michaels competed exclusively as a face, capturing the World Heavyweight Championship at Survivor Series, and feuding with heels such as Triple H, Ric Flair, and Chris Jericho.
In 2005, Michaels found himself aligned with the recently returned Hulk Hogan, and the pair dominated until HBK superkicked Hogan in the middle of the ring.
His first heel turn in seven years, Michaels fit perfectly back in the role, explaining that Hogan had been living off a legacy from 30 years ago, as opposed to Michaels who had been entertaining fans each night.
Returning to Montreal as a heel, Michaels gave the promo of a lifetime, before losing to the Hulkster at Summerslam.
