• The Power Went Out During A Live WWF PPV 25 Years Ago Today
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on May 26, 1996, the World Wrestling Federation aired the first part of ‘WWF In Your House 8: Beware of Dog’ LIVE on PPV from the Florence Civic Center in Florence, South Carolina.
It was the 8th edition of the WWF In Your House pay-per-views, that took place between 1995 and 1999.
The power went out during the event, caused by a severe thunderstorm, thus resulting in only 2 matches airing that night and the other 3 matches airing two days later during the rescheduled pay-per-view, which included the two original matches from May 26th.
Here are the results from the first night:
– Marc Mero defeated Hunter Hearst Helmsley
– WWF World Heavyweight Championship: Shawn Michaels (c) wrestled The British Bulldog to a no-contest
Plus several “dark matches”!
