One of the great storytelling devices wrestling bookers have at their disposal is the turn—the changing of a character from villain to hero or vice versa.
These turns often intensify rivalries, making old friends enemies or adding an unexpected obstacle to a champion's reign.
Some of the most famous turns in wrestling history have brought us matches like Hogan vs.Andre, Hogan vs. Savage, and Jericho vs. Michaels and have shown us CM Punk as the Straight-Edge Savior, Hogan as the leader of the NWO, and even Stone Cold as Mr. McMahon's little buddy in the Two-Man Power Trip.
Here are my ratings of turns that have occurred so far in 2011, from least to most impactful. Forgive me if I forget some, as it is possible some of them are so unimportant they escaped my radar.
