In Your House goes to Three Hours
2 August 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Undertaker and Shawn Michaels had their first ever meeting, Bret Hart wrestled the Patriot for the WWE Championship, and Steve Austin returned from injury and took out Owen Hart as the Head Bangers won their first and only WWE tag team Championship in this decent, but not great, In Your House PPV, the first to happen over three hours.

The night started off with a match that was tragically ironic in retrospect as Brian Pillman took on Goldust. If Pillman won, he would win the services of Goldust's manager Marlena. If Goldust won, Pillman would be forced to leave the WWE. Pillman picked up the victory in a very average match, knocking Goldust out with Marlena's purse, containing a brick. Sadly, Pillman make a far more final exit from the WWE a month later, tragically dying the day of the next PPV.

The next match was a continuation of the WWE's efforts to compete with WCW's strong cruiserweight division with small men Brian Christopher and Scott Putski having a match. The match ended early and suffered as a result, Putski losing by count out after receiving a knee injury. Putski's career in the WWE would not last much longer. Brian Christopher, the son of Jerry Lawler (though he was always billed as the nephew) would have moderate success as part of the tag team Too Cool along with Scotty 2 Hotty.

Next match, which was poor, saw Savio Vega defeat Crush and Farooq in a Triple Threat match. All three were at this stage still involved in the Nation of Domination. This was followed by a midget match, with Max Mini defeating El Torito. Midget wrestling's not really my cup of tea, and this was a little long.

The next match saw the vacant Tag Team Title put on the line in a four team elimination tag match. This was an average match, lifted by a tremendous ending. The first two teams eliminated were the Legion of Doom (Hawk and Animal) with Animal getting disqualified after hitting the Godwinns with their slop bucket, with Thrasher eliminating the Godwinns, pinning Phineas with a sunset flip not long after. The team of Owen Hart and British Bulldog appeared in complete control until the intervention of Steve Austin, who had been off TV following a neck injury he'd received from Owen Hart. Austin hit Owen with a stunner, allowing Mosh to get the pin and the Head Bangers were WWE Tag Team Champions for the first time.

Next match saw Bret Hart successfully defending the WWE Title against the Patriot. The Patriot had come from pretty nowhere to defend American values against the evil Canadian and had pinned Hart on RAW in the lead up to the event, and put on a solid match with Bret here. But Hart was too good, hitting the sharpshooter to get the win.

This was followed by the main event which saw Shawn Michaels and the Undertaker fight to a no contest in an excellent match. Michaels had cost the Undertaker the WWE Title at Summerslam, accidentally knocking him out with a steel chair. He then started to act strangely. By the end of this match there was no doubt that Michaels had become a bad guy and was about to form one of the WWE's most fondly remembered stables: The Original De-generation X.

So there you have it. An interesting PPV, with some good matches and a high profile return. It served its purpose at the time, and isn't a bad watch now. I wouldn't recommend going to a lot of trouble to find it, but if it's easily available, is worth a look.
