Re: Why did WWE waste so many matches as dark matches at In Your House ???
I just looked at that list again and Sid vs Vader was on the actual Buried Alive card. I remember because I ordered it. Shawn didn't wrestle (on the card) and they had the Sid/Vader match w/ Shawn on commentary.
Sid won with a chokeslam...ahhh childhood memories.....
[EDIT: Wait I think I figured it out. Maybe he was trying out chemistry. As I mentioned above some of those matches DID happen but on either the next event or on RAW (weird).
*HBK wrestled Goldust on a Thursday Raw.
*Undertaker wrestled Goldust (who was still the IC champion) in a "Final Curtain Match" at Mind Games.
*Savio Vega/Stone Cold opened Buried Alive (IIRC)
* Marc Mero beat Faarooq for the IC strap on RAW
* Marc Mero lost the IC strap to HHH on RAW]
I don't remember the others however. It doesn't make any sense to have them as dark matches and then doing them again for television.
Ultimate Warrior, Undertaker, HBK in a dark matches? Vince was off his rocker...they weren't even on the main cards.
Damn, I would have liked to have seen that Sid/Vader match. Also, if Warrior hadn't left again in 96, we would have seen Warrior/Vader. Damn shame we didn't get to see that, would have been interesting.
