Let’s Talk Wrestling : WWF In Your House 1995 (Review)


In Your House

Syracuse, NY

May 14th, 1995



Hakushi (w/Shinja) vs. Bret Hart
What a fantastic opener match. Hakushi is extremely fast and agile doing flips that back then weren’t really seen much in WWF. Shockingly he mixed well with Hart too who used his technical skillset well here to counter the high flying style. Even with some off moments towards the beginning by the end the match had found its groove. 4 / 5
Two On One Handicap Match
Jeff Jarrett & The Roadie vs. Razor Ramon
Slower start to the match but picked up the pace mid way in and the crowd was behind it. Both JJ (who was IC champ at the time) and Razor looked good here. Razor comes off looking strong winning a handicap match. Post match attack here keeps JJ as heel. Also ended up being the debut for Savio Vega, who isn’t really known when he runs in but gets a good crowd reaction. 3 / 5
King Of The Ring 1995 Qualifying Match
Adam Bomb vs. Mabel (w/Mo)
A short match. Adam Bomb does some fine moves for being a taller man but Mabel wins to keep his dominate push going. Mabel just is such an eye sore in the ring with his inability to move much so thankfully this match didn’t last long at all. .5 / 5
WWF World Tag Team Title Match
Camp Cornette (Owen Hart & Yokozuna) (w/Jim Cornette & Mr. Fuji) (c) vs. The Smoking Gunns (Bart Gunn & Billy Gunn)
An odd and super rushed match. Owen was great and the Gunns worked well together. Yokozuna seemed out of breathe by the slightest movement and fully exhausted by the end. The ending just felt lackluster like it didn’t matter much. 1.5 / 5
Singles Match
Bret Hart vs. Jerry Lawler
A bad Bret Hart match actually. Though mainly focused on the story with Lawler having Hakushi run in to fight Bret. A cheap finish and the only good part was Hebner playing his bump so well. 1 / 5
WWF World Heavyweight Title Match
Diesel (c) vs. Sid (w/Ted DiBiase)
A bad and just plain boring match. Both these men are able to have great matches with smaller men but here the two just had no chemistry and never clicked. Diesel sold the back injury well but Sid just sort of slumped around it seemed and never moved or did much at any sort of urgent pace. Having Tatanka and Bam Bam run in at the team to form teams was just a bad way to end a PPV. 1 / 5
