On Wednesday’s edition of NXT on USA, it was announced that Sunday, June 7th will see the return of an old WWE pay-per-view name with NXT TakeOver: In Your House, live on WWE Network.
Flanked by Shawn Michaels and Road Dogg, Triple H said Thursday marks the 25th anniversary of the first WWE In Your House pay-per-view and because so many people are spending time in their houses, they wanted to bring the action to the fans. Michaels and Dogg were joking as Triple H didn’t want to talk about his first IYH match which was a hog pen match against Henry Godwinn at In Your House 5.
The last TakeOver was scheduled for WrestleMania weekend, but was canceled due to the pandemic. Before that, the last such event was held in mid-February in Portland, Oregon.
The first In Your House was held on May 14, 1995, in Syracuse, NY. At the time, the then-WWF held four PPVs a year and the IYH shows were two hour PPVs for slightly less money than the Big Four. The IYH name lasted for 29 events over four years, ending in February 1999.
