PWP’s Sam Thorne is back with his review of WWE’s latest “In Your House” pay-per-view, “The Great White North.”
Last time, WCW’s Fall Brawl trampled over the WWF’s In Your House 3, because it had more star power, generally better matches and it was a more entertaining watch overall. This time we’re looking at In Your House 4: The Great White North, often called a historic low point for WWF programming.
We’re straight to it, as the ring announcer tells us Bonnie.. someone is going to sing the Canadian National Anthem, which is actually really enjoyed by the audience. It’s usually sandbagged by wrestling fans. Then we’re straight to a message from Gorilla as he tells us outright, that Shawn Michaels will be relinquishing the Intercontinental Championship to Dean Douglas, but he will defend it straight away against Razor Ramon. Gorilla tells us it’s one of the hardest decisions he’s had to make, clearly trying to garner lots of sympathy for Vince McMahon‘s golden boy.
Vince welcomes us to Winnepeg arena as the hokey music from 1995 plays.
Two attitude stars start us off, as Fatu comes out wearing one of the most absurd coats I’ve ever seen. Blue, red, yellow and green just don’t belong on the same piece of clothing, it just doesn’t. Future Rikishi will be squaring off against future Triple H, as Hunter Hearst Helmsley makes his very slow entrance.
