Most Shocking Betrayals In Pro Wrestling


The Top Ten

1 Hulk Hogan Turns Heel

For almost 15 years Hulk Hogan had always been the good guy but that all changed on June 7, 1996 at WCW's Bash at the Beach when Hogan revealed himself as the third member along with Scott Hall & Kevin Nash to form the N.W.O. - egnomac

The moment that shocked the wrestlingworld! 80s wrestlinghero turns his back on his fans and becomes the leader of one of the greatest heel stables of all time.

2 Triple H Turns on Shawn Michaels

Nobody saw this coming!

3 Paul Bearer Turns on The Undertaker

We've seen Bearer betrayed Undertaker in late 90's, but we also seen Bearer betrayed Undertaker again in 2010.

4 Mr. McMahon Turns on Bret Hart

Wither or not you agree with either McMahon or Hart the Montreal screwjob at Survivor Series is still considered one of the most controversial moments in wrestling history, when Bret Hart refused to drop the title to Shawn Michaels Vince McMahon was given no alternative but to screw Bret out of the title. - egnomac

5 Andre the Giant Turns on Hulk Hogan
6 Evolution Turns on Randy Orton

Outta nowhere (^-^)

7 Seth Rollins Turns On The Shield

Well, it was going to happen one day. I always though that Roman would break it up. I found it quite interesting that Seth broke it up. Breaking up The Shield did a lot for them (like major pushes, main eventing on their own, and improving as a wrestler on their own). So, I personally think it was a good idea to break them up - KingSlayer93316

Did not see that coming Seth Rollins turning on his Shield companions and siding with the authority. - egnomac

Always seen this coming Seth Rollins is a snake, can't stand him.. Roman and Dean made Seth what he is today, that's what he forgets. - chloedouglas

That was wrong, unfair and cruel!

That was a good betrayal though. We got to have one of the most legendary wrestlers in the wrestling industry. And then Marty Jannety... - KingSlayer93316

The greatest betrayal ever.

10 Matt Hardy Turns on Jeff Hardy

Perhaps it was jealousy over Jeff Hardy's sudden success as the WWE Champion that Matt Hardy took it upon himself to cost Jeff the title at the Royal Rumble. - egnomac
