Today in Pro Wrestling History: (May 14): The WWF’s version of ‘Home Improvement’

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.
