A professional wrestling feud is a staged disagreement between two wrestlers or factions of wrestlers over a purported slight or insult. It becomes part of the storyline that is ongoing, in televised matches in particular. Feuds may be protracted and last for months or even years or resolved with implausible speed, perhaps during the course of a single long match. Feuds are often the result of the friction that is created between faces (the heroic figures) and heels (the malevolent, 'evil' participants). Some of the more popular feuds with audiences involve pitting former allies, particularly tag team partners, against each other. Depending on how popular and entertaining the feud may be, it is usually common practice for a feud to continue on for weeks, usually heading into a match in a Pay Per View.

Previously in the world of professional wrestling, many promoters wanted to "protect the business" and thus would further convince the live audience that the feuding wrestlers really did hate each other and looked to outdo each other. However, throughout the years, the wrestling business has become very open in which allowed the fans to see otherwise. A notorious incident involving the The Clique during a WWE House Show "broke" this illusion. The Clique (sometimes referred to as the Kliq) was a backstage group in the World Wrestling Federation of the mid-1990s, which some claim held virtually all booking power (the power to make matches and determine storylines), and were accused of refusing to put over (elevate, usually by losing a...
