Triple H and HBK have brought back an old WWE PPV

As happened with Raw and SmackDown, NXT also had to adapt to the unusual circumstances imposed by the current health emergency, transmitting everything behind closed doors. Unfortunately the TakeOver scheduled in Tampa during the WrestleMania weekend has been canceled, but for the next event WWE has decided to do great things.

On the occasion of last night's episode of the yellow show, in fact, Triple H and Shawn Michaels have announced the return of 'In Your House', historic PPV whose first edition aired on May 14, 1995, becoming over time a recurring tradition of the then World Wrestling Federation.

This event was created by WWE that aired on pay-per-view (PPV) from May 1995 to February 1999. The WWF retired the In Your House branding for its monthly pay-per-views following February 1999's St. Valentine's Day Massacre.

After 21 years, the name was revived for a WWE NXT-branded event in 2020 to mark the 25th anniversary of the first In Your House PPV. The original concept was that, in months when the WWF was not holding one of its major PPV events (WrestleMania, King of the Ring, SummerSlam, Survivor Series, and Royal Rumble, which at the time ran for three hours and retailed for $29.95), they would offer a two-hour PPV, priced at US$14.95.

The price was raised to $19.95 starting in December 1995 with In Your House 5. The WWF did this in response to a move by competitor World Championship Wrestling (WCW) to increase their annual pay-per-view events (in 1995, WCW held 9 PPV events; in 1996, 10 and finally started airing monthly events in 1997).
