• WWF Veteran Returning For NXT TakeOver: In Your House
WWE has confirmed the return of their Old School WWF event ‘In Your House’, once again as an NXT TakeOver special on June 13th.
This would be the second NXT ‘In Your House’ event after the event was brought back last year for the black-and-gold brand.
The World Wrestling Federation aired the original 28 ‘In Your House’ pay-per-views from May 1995 until April 1999.
Like last year, Old School WWF announcer Todd Pettengill is confirmed to return for this year’s edition.
Here’s WWE’s public statement:
“The Superstars of NXT are set to TakeOver your house!
As first reported on Barstool Sports’ Rasslin podcast in Brandon Walker’s interview with Johnny Gargano, the black-and-gold brand will present NXT TakeOver: In Your House on Sunday, June 13, at 7 ET/4 PT, streaming exclusively on Peacock in the U.S. and on WWE Network elsewhere.
Former WWE announcer Todd Pettengill, who is synonymous with the iconic In Your House brand, will return to host the festivities.
NXT brought back the landmark event last June for the first time in more than 21 years, featuring the destructive TakeOver debut of current NXT Champion Karrion Kross and an unforgettable NXT Women’s Championship Triple Threat Match between Io Shirai, Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley.
What will Kross and company have in store for the NXT Universe when the black-and-gold brand once again takes over?”
Todd Pettengill joined the WWF in 1993 as Mean Gene Okerlund’s replacement and worked as an announcer & backstage interviewer until he left in 1997.

• Old School WWF/WWE Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF developmental talent Doug Basham celebrates his 50th birthday today.
After being used as an occasional jobber while it was still the World Wrestling Federation, Doug Basham became a main roster star later on during the WWE Ruthless Aggression Era, when he teamed up with his kayfabe brother Danny Basham as The Basham Brothers.
Together, they won the WWE Tag Team Titles twice, before they were released in early 2007. Despite the modern day PG Era WWE labeling them as “boring”, they were anything but that. It’s just WWE’s typical historical revisionism, but most fans are already used to that bs.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DOUG BASHAM!
