TODAY IN PRO WRESTLING HISTORY… MAY 14th: The WWF’s version of ‘Home Improvement’

DATELINE: MAY 14, 1995 – ONONDAGA WAR MEMORIAL – SYRACUSE, NY


The WWF presents the first of their In Your House events, and as part of the show, holds a contest to award one lucky fan a brand, new home.

The IYH series, which are now considered a signature of the company’s ‘pre-Attitude stage’, aired in a mini-pay-per-view format from May 1995 to April 1999. The concept followed that, in months when the WWF was not holding one of its major PPV events (WrestleManiaKing of the RingSummerSlamSurvivor Series, and Royal Rumble), they would offer a two-hour PPV, priced at $14.95.

The WWF eventually retired the In Your House branding, following April 1999’s Backlash: In Your House event.
