WWE held 27 In Your House events from May 1995 to February 1999. This This Sunday WWE will break a 21-year absence for the popular event.
Vince McMahon’s company excited a lot of fans when bringing back the In Your House name. Are they just planning a one-off event?
Triple H revealed some things during a conference call to promote the event. The name was not purposefully chosen to cash-in on the nostalgia for the 25th anniversary of the first In Your House event. That name just matched the current theme of social isolation due to COVID-19. Then he proceeded say that they could make this a regular thing depending on the fans’ “enjoyment level.”
“It was just the perfect timing because everyone’s stuck in their house. It was just the perfect timing. The reaction to it was huge you know it’s funny that we made the decision to name it In Your House and it wasn’t until we made the decision that it was pointed out to me that the date is like a couple of days away from the 25th anniversary of the first In Your House pay-per-view. It was all just a happy coincidence.”
“I think it all worked out great and you know I think we’ll see where it goes and the enjoyment level and everything else, but it definitely could be something that comes back and we’ll see what the enjoyment level is and everything else. If it’s as good as I think it’s gonna be then I think people might demand it to come back, so we’ll work on it.”
WWE has a lot of intellectual property that they can use whenever they like. The In Your House name hasn’t been promoted since 1999, but fans definitely didn’t forget about it. The name might not go away for as long this time.
Side Note: WWE revived this name months after filing cease and desist over an indie company holding an “In Your Warehouse” event during WrestleMania weekend.
