70s/early 80s WWF

Patterson dumping Albano and turning "good"

Snuka getting piledriven by Ray Stevens and "turning good"

What other ones and in other territories stand out as memorable?

"Mad Dog" Buzz Sawyer rescuing his brother Brett Wayne Sawyer from Paul Ellering's Legion of Doom (Road Warriors, Jake Roberts) in Georgia. Up to this point, nobody knew the two were brothers and Sawyer was probably the most hated wrestler in Georgia and was coming off his loss to Tommy Rich in ""The Last Battle of Atlanta".

Roddy Piper saving Gordon Solie from a beatdown at the hands of Don Muraco in Georgia. At the time, Piper was a part-time announcer that was absolutely hated by the fans and they just wanted him to STFU.

The ULTIMATE face turn of my childhood,and still one of the most talked about angles in Mid Atlantic history: Blackjack Mulligan turns babyface in the hat and robe angle vs Ric Flair.

Ric Flair turning mega fan favorite in the Mid Atlantic area after being double crossed by Greg Valentine and having his nose broken by Gene Anderson.

Dusty Rhodes vs Pak Song in Florida has to rank right up there as far as history goes.

Nikita Koloff and Dusty Rhodes form the "Superpowers"

Randy Savage at WrestleMania VII was pretty good.

Larry Hennig saving the High Flyers also got a good pop and nice babyface run for The Ax.

Larry Hennig turns face by rescuing the High Flyers Greg Gagne & Jim Brunzell from a beat down by Nick Bockwinkel, Ray Stevens and Bobby Heenan. This angle also marked Heenan's first appearance as the manager of Bockwinkel & Stevens.

Ray Stevens turns face by destroying Bobby Heenan's manager of the year trophy.

while I think Dusty may have been tghe biggest also

Steve Austins kind of emeregence as the anti hero face in WWE

Ray Stevens had two good ones one in SF while teaming with Pat Patterson and one in teh AWA when he quit the Heenan Family

and because you all loved Buddy Rose so much let me mention his Face turn in the Northwest Territory breaking from Rip Oliver

Actually Flair was already a HUGE fan favorite when this happened. Flair turned a year earlier wiht the feud with Paul Jones. Valentine and come to Flair offering his "help" in Flair's war with Snuka & Sheik. It took several weeks for Flair to agree in an attempt to bring Valentine to the side of the fans. Then Valentine double crossed him and shattered his nose with Anderson's cane. Wasnt a turn of Flair but it was a hell of a way to jump start the Flair vs Valentine program
