You've seen it happen a thousand times in wrestling...
A wrestler (or manager, or even an authority figure) has formed an alliance with another wrestler (or group, or even an organization). Not a one and done appearance because the authority figure has booked them that way.... but a lasting relationship. Over time, for a variety of reasons, the combination is seen as unbreakable. And then, of course.... the betrayal happens.
These are different than heel turns, per se. And in fact, some of these end of being face turns. Some of them aren't turns at all, but rather a change in philosophy. But because of that betrayal, the wrestler's career took a very different turn.
In selecting the Top 50 Betrayals, Wrestling Mechandise and Memories looked at the following criteria:
Was the betrayal shocking? Could it be foreseen months in advance?
How much impact did it have on that person's career?
How memorable was the moment in a company's history?
