What's pretty much the last thing you expect to see when you turn on the
to professional wrestling
That's right, a hug.
It almost never happens, and for good reason: it's not exactly what
you expect two sworn enemies to do when they're in the ring fighting each
other! You'll normally only see a hug after two babyfaces (good
guys) fight each other in the same match, which is rare.
After a hardfought match, the guy who lost will normally glare at the
winner, riling up the crowd and teasing a heel turn. After a staredown
that sometimes lasts up to five full minutes for best effect, the two guys
will hug in the middle of the ring. The rare show of sportsmanship
will normally elicit a great reaction from the fans.
Hence, the Babyface Embrace.
