WWF In Your House VI
From: Syracuse, NY
Jim Ross and Bobby Heenan welcome everyone to another In Your House and they are excited for the action this evening. Ross notes that two matches will feature brothers competing against each other. Ross promotes the match between Owen Hart and Bret Hart as an opportunity for Owen to show he’s on the same level as Bret. Heenan thinks that Bret’s career is on its last legs and its time for a younger and better Hart to carry the Hart name. Ross also promotes the steel cage match between WWF Intercontinental Champion Scott Steiner defending against Rick Steiner inside a steel cage. Heenan isn’t sure if the cage will impact either man as they both want to be in the cage to destroy each other. Heenan thinks about the mama Steiner probably being stressed, but Heenan laughs it off and loves it. Also tonight, Ron Simmons looks to keep his movement going strong as he competes in singles action with the Undertaker. Heenan isn’t surprised that Simmons isn’t afraid of the dark and thinks that Simmons will not be stopped, not even by the Undertaker. Ross also makes sure to plug the WWF World Championship match where Diesel defends against King Yokozuna! Lets gets right into the action!
