The House Show 018 – WWF Badd Blood: In Your House

“Now we got bad blood!”

Welcome to the Taylor Swift show! This is one of the most memorable shows in the In Your House series for many reasons, and we will talk about all of them on today’s show. It’s a night of firsts, including our first contest! That’s right, we announce the details of our first giveaway contest on today’s show. Follow us across the social media accounts, every follow gives you one entry into the contest. All of the social media links are below.

After last month’s brawl, the Undertaker and Shawn Michaels are still warring with each other and only one structure can confine them. It’s the debut of Hell in a Cell! Badd Blood: In Your House takes us from the pinnacle to the pit because earlier in the day the WWF found out that Hart Foundation member Brian Pillman was found dead in his hotel room.

These highs and lows took place in front of over 21,000 fans at the Kiel Center in St. Louis, Missouri on October 5, 1997. Stone Cold Steve Austin has been stripped of the Intercontinental title and the finals to crown a new champion take place tonight. Brian Pillman was supposed to take on Dude Love on the PPV so replacement matches are needed. Plus a Flag Match that surprises everyone, including Vince McMahon.

In addition to the contest announcement on the show we also share too much personal information. We debate how to introduce new characters. How the WWF addresses deaths of their talent. The best way to book Vader. Who is the Poochi of the WWF? And to the pain of the other two hosts, how many Taylor Swift references can Kevin cram into this show?

Tonight’s matches include:

  • The Nation of Domination (D’Lo Brown, Kama Mustafa and Rocky Maivia) vs The Legion of Doom (Animal and Hawk) in a Handicap match.
  • Max Mini and Nova vs Mosaic and Tarantula.
  • The Godwinns (Henry O. Godwinn and Phineas I. Godwinn) (with Uncle Cletus) vs The Headbangers (Mosh and Thrasher) (WWF Tag Team champions).
  • Owen Hart vs Faarooq in the finals to crown a new WWF Intercontinental champion.
  • The Disciples of Apocalypse (8-Ball, Chainz, Crush and Skull) vs Los Boricuas (Jesús Castillo Jr., José Estrada Jr., Miguel Pérez Jr. and Savio Vega).
  • Bret Hart and The British Bulldog vs The Patriot and Vader in a Flag Match.
  • Shawn Michaels vs The Undertaker in the first ever Hell in a Cell match.  

And wait, who’s that?! That’s gotta be…. That’s gotta be KANE!!!!
