Did this just happen when they were giving Bobby the manager of the year award or was there a slow build to a Ray Stevens face turn?

Very slow build after Lanza & Duncum won the AWA Tag Titles from Bruiser & Crusher on 7/23/76 In Chicago. With Bockwinkel holding the AWA Title, Stevens was the one man in the Heenan Family without a title.

That, and on the weekly interview segments Stevens kept getting cut off by Bock, Heenan, et al. Stevens never had a chance to talk.

LOL. I thought it was quite funny. You could see split happening.

One of the many great AWA angles. You could see it coming but it was still awesome. I think Bobby did one of his exaggerated flips when Stevens nailed him if I rememeber right! I think Ray left for awhile after this feud died down a little and then returned when he teamed with Pat Patterson. He may have went back to SF or moved on to FL for awhile before coming back?

I checked the results and there really wasn't much of a time gap between Ray working as a babyface against the Heenan Family and then as a heel teaming with Pat Patterson. In fact, they actually overlapped a bit with Ray starting to team with Pat on TV and at some house shows while still facing Heenan's crew on his own in other towns. Ray and Pat even teamed as babyfaces against Bockwinkel and Lanza in Winnipeg before settling in as heels.
