• 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.
Results from that night:
– Razor Ramon defeated The 1–2–3 Kid
– Hunter Hearst Helmsley defeated Duke Droese
– Yokozuna defeated The British Bulldog via DQ
– #1 contender: Shawn Michaels defeated Owen Hart
– Steel Cage – WWF World Heavyweight Championship: Bret Hart (c) defeated Diesel
