A Wrecking Ball is a ship that has taken a turn for the worst - the absolute worst possible turn a ship can make. When trying to avoid collision with another ship, your ship called the Titanic takes a turn and hits a glacier. And then Miley Cyrus came in like a wrecking ball.
Basically, a ship that goes sour is a wrecking ball. Whoever initiates this is considered to have "come in like a wrecking ball" and began to swing all around, breaking his heart, your heart, their heart, her heart, everyones heart. Sometimes it's a person in the relationship, other times it's not. This is the worst possible outcome for a ship and for a shipper.
