Despite all of our rage, we’re still wrestling marks in the cage!
Your Trios Tag Team champions continue ignoring the doorbell as we break down WWF In Your House. This sixth iteration comes from Louisville, Kentucky. Taking place on February 18, 1996 in front of 5,500 live fans and 150,000 pay per view buys.
Remember: Viewer discretion is advised.
We have many questions while watching this event. Does a Crybaby match do anything to help the loser’s career? What is the featured item of the week? Who the hell put Shawn Michaels on top of a house?
Shawn Michaels is still recovering from not only the attack in Syracuse, but also Owen Hart’s boot. Can he make it to WrestleMania? A newly turned good guy Yokozuna returns and he has something to say. Kevin educates Matty Treats on Elizabeth Hilden’s resume. We continue to be presently surprised by some great work, by both wrestlers and managers. Shawn Michaels acts inappropriately. The guys reminisce about the big blue steel cage. We disagree over the quality of the main event match. Then we’re all on the same page to praise the most unexpected, original, shocking pay per view ending we had ever seen.
Plus, the debut of The House Show Game Show!
Tonight’s matches include:
Razor Ramon vs. The 1-2-3 Kid (with Ted DiBiase) in a Crybaby Match.
