• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (February 18, 1996) – WWF In Your House 6: Rage in the Cage
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on February 18, 1996, the World Wrestling Federation aired ‘WWF In Your House 6: Rage in the Cage’ LIVE on PPV from the Louisville Gardens in Louisville, Kentucky.
Bret Hart refused to take Diesel’s Jacknife Powerbomb finisher at the end of the main event, before The Undertaker would come out to attack Diesel, because Bret felt that it would make him look weak.
That incident led to Kevin Nash telling his friend “Razor Ramon” Scott Hall “tell Bischoff i’m in” and both left the WWF for WCW a few months later, when their contracts expired.
It was also Yokozuna’s first pay-per-view as a Babyface, after he turned and left Camp Cornette a few weeks earlier.
Below are the results from that night:
– Razor Ramon defeated The 1–2–3 Kid
– Hunter Hearst Helmsley defeated Duke Droese
– Yokozuna defeated The British Bulldog by DQ
– #1 Contender: Shawn Michaels defeated Owen Hart
– Steel Cage – WWF World Heavyweight Championship: Bret Hart (c) defeated Diesel
• Backstage News On The Undertaker’s Future After WrestleMania 36 Match With AJ Styles
As we noted before, WWE is currently planning The Undertaker vs. AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36.
After Undertaker missed last year’s WrestleMania, this is going to be his 27th appearance at the Show of Shows.
This could be one of the reasons why WWE hasn’t announced The Undertaker for a match at WWE Super ShowDown 2020 in Saudi Arabia, as they might be saving him for this big match at WrestleMania.
We noted last year that Undertaker gave WWE officials a list of wrestlers he wants to work with before he retires and AJ Styles was one of those wrestlers.
According to Wrestlingnewsco, the reason Undertaker wants to work with Styles is because Undertaker considers Styles a “modern day Shawn Michaels” and believes he could tear the house down with “The Phenomenal One” (just like he did with Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania over a decade ago).
However, will this be the final time we see The Undertaker in a match?
The answer is no.
Wrestlingnewsco is also reporting that WWE officials have already begun discussions about giving The Undertaker a special match at Survivor Series 2020, which will be The Deadman’s 30th anniversary in the WWE.
