Thanks for making the list. Trying to build my PPV collection. CS in 1997 was close to a flawless PPV. One of the loudest crowds I have ever heard in the main event.

Shawn Michaels vs Diesel In Your House 7
Saw this match for the first time today and what a great match this is. This is how you do a No Holds Barred match in a PG environment. As much as I love to see blood, barbwire, thumbtacks and all that goodness, the thing about these kind of No-Dq matches is that they often rely heavily on it to sell the match. In a PG environment these kind of matches forces wrestles to be more creative and focus more on telling a story, rather than holy shit moments. This is exactly what this match did. It told a great story and did it through creative and limited use of weapons.

There's this one spot that legit scared the hell out of me. Diesel ties a belt around Micahels' neck, throws him over the top rope and I don't know if Shawn's just an amazing seller or if it was what it was, but Shawn looked like he was legit gonna pass out. It was scary man. I have to point out the amazing babyface comebacks done by Shawn Michaels. Just badass. It actually felt as if Shawn was giving it his all to win this match. One of the best and well time babyface comebacks I've ever seen, not to mention well timed moments where Kevin Nash would simply derail HBK's comeback.

The ONLY problem I had with this match is that just once again WWE has to do add some booking "WTF" decision in the match. They just have to have their input in the match. The whole thing where Diesel takes off Mad Dog Vachon prosthetic leg is just one of those moments that will leave a bad taste in your mouth.

Still this match is a classic and is one of those matches that I would show someone who doesn't watch pro wrestling to try to get them in it.

****1/2

Nash using the fake leg of Mad Dog is one of my fav parts of that match . Not as high on it these days though. Didn't like how Shawn did his superman style comeback right after being powerbombed through a table, which for WWF in early 1996 was one of the biggest most brutal things someone could do.

HBK spent like 2 minutes on the floor in pain though. Then he sold it even more trying to crawl back in the ring. He picked up the fire extingusiher and sprayed it in Nash's eyes, before crawling back into the ring and mounting his comeback. I, personally, had no problem with it since HBK sold the entire thing throughout. It wasn't your typical superman comeback IMO. It was just a badass comeback, giving it all you have, depleting all your energy to keep your opponent down.

It's not like he got up 10 seconds after being thrown through the table, made a mircaculous comeback and hit SCM and got the win. There were points later in the match wehre Nash had him down for a while but the fighting spirit in HBK never gave up.

I was at this PPV live! The one and only PPV I have ever been to. I'm a huge In Your House fan so of course I love the match even though I'm not crazy about HBK and can't stand Nash. Something I hate about this match is the camera work. If you rewatch the end of the match the camera actually misses HBK hitting SCM on Nash.

Some great matches that night. Vader won a great match with Razor and the dark matches were good....Taker V Foley, HHH V Marc Mero and Austin V Savio Vega

I wish this PPV was not so hard to find and I refuse to pay $75-100 for it on ebay which I see now and again.

Looked up some of my thoughts from Diesel/HBK and after some discussion with other peoples I came to the conclusion that I didn't like Shawn essentially using the powerbomb through the table as a transition into his comeback. A little better than just saying he went through the table then powered back into the match . Been a while since I watched it lol.

<3 Tagged Classics. Thought most of the IYH shows are garbage outside of one match . The 13 & 16 collection is the only one really worth owning lol.

Watched HBK/Nash recently and had this little bit to say about it

Michaels v Diesel from IYH holds up superbly. I can see why a guy would look at Michaels being uppity a couple of minutes after a table bump (esp. during this era and company) and be bothered, but there's not a more selling-arse-off sight than Shawn shaking and quivering like a frail old man trying to crawl to the ring. I don't see a good complaint for the rest of the match unless someone has a problem with Mad Dog's prosthetic leg being used. Diesel was a perfect dick. He was the monster, and he used all the unnecessary weapons to try to keep Michaels down. Using he referee's belt to hang him was pretty insane, and Michaels looked actually deprived of air. This is still a great match.
