In Your House was a pay-per-view (PPV) series created by the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE) that aired from May 1995 to April 1999.

The original concept was that, in months when the WWF was not holding one of its major PPV events (WrestleMania, King of the Ring, SummerSlam, Survivor Series, and Royal Rumble, which at the time ran for three hours and retailed for $29.95), they would offer a two-hour PPV, priced at US$14.95. The price was raised to $19.95 starting in December 1995 with In Your House 5. The WWF did this in response to a move by competitor World Championship Wrestling (WCW) to increase their annual pay-per-view events (in 1995, WCW held 9 PPV events; in 1996, 10 and finally started airing monthly events in 1997). Notwithstanding the addition of more WWF events, WCW's events regularly ran between 2.5–3 hours. Starting with Ground Zero: In Your House in September 1997, the WWF expanded all of its In Your House events to three hours, thus matching the runtime of its major PPV events.

The WWF retired the In Your House branding for its monthly pay-per-views following April 1999's Backlash: In Your House event, as the company moved to install permanent names for each of its monthly events.

History[edit]

The first six In Your House events were not promoted with subtitles, which were retroactively added later (given below in small print), sometimes making use of a tagline. The first event to officially use a subtitle was the seventh event, "In Your House 7: Good Friends, Better Enemies". From September 1997 onwards, the events were no longer numbered and the subtitles replaced the In Your House label as the main titles (e.g. the PPV was not named In Your House: Ground Zero but Ground Zero: In Your House), until regular named shows such as Fully Loaded and Unforgiven took over in 1999.

The WWF gave away a brand-new house in the Hunter's Creek subdivision area in Orlando, Florida on the first PPV to a randomly selected viewer.
