The House Show 19 – D-Generation X: In Your House

Are you ready? It’s a time of rebellion and immaturity in the WWF. Language, sexuality, and violence rule the day. There’s some wrestling too. In the two months since the last In Your House PPV, Bret Hart has left the WWF, Shawn Michaels has officially formed DX, the New Age Outlaws are ruling the tag team division, and Steve Austin can wrestle again. There’s so many changes in two months it feels like two years.

D-Generation X: In Your House took place on December 7, 1997 at the Springfield Civic Center in Springfield, Massachusetts in front of over 6,000 fans. Sgt. Slaughter is trying to keep order in the WWF but those degenerates foil him at every turn. Thankfully, a returning hero full of morals has come from the world of Ultimate Fighting to have Sarge’s six. Tonight, New will take on O.L.D., a champion will be crowned, we find out who is the toughest man. All of this and so much more!

Your co-hosts also talk about what to listen to while driving. We travel back to the 1990’s when edgy sexy content was mainstream. Debates over why the WWF Light Heavyweight title wasn’t taken seriously and who has the best rap entrance in the WWF. Why does the Educator hate titles? Could there be a surprise 8 best things? Fantasy booking Owen Hart. Plus the greatest promo in show history.

  • Taka Michinoku vs Brian Christopher to crown the first WWF Light Heavyweight champion.
  • Los Boricuas (Jesús Castillo Jr., José Estrada Jr. and Miguel Pérez Jr.) (with Savio Vega) vs The Disciples of Apocalypse (8-Ball, Chainz and Skull).
