In Your House 10: Mind Games was a professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), which took place on September 22, 1996, at the CoreStates Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was the tenth pay-per-view of the In Your House series. The main event of the show saw Shawn Michaels defend the WWF World Heavyweight Championship against Mankind. Also on the show the WWF Tag Team Champions The Smoking Gunns (Billy and Bart Gunn) defended the championship against Owen Hart and The British Bulldog. On the undercard former Olympic Athlete Mark Henry made his professional wrestling debut. In total the PPV portion of the show featured six matches, the Free For All pre-show featured one match and the WWF held three "dark matches" before the cameras were turned on. With the launch of the WWE Network in 2014 this show became available on demand, but did not include the three dark matches nor the Free for All match.

Background[edit]

In Your House 10: Mind Games featured professional wrestling matches involving different wrestlers from pre-existing scripted feuds, plots, and storylines that were played out on Monday Night Raw and other World Wrestling Federation (WWF) television programming. Wrestlers portrayed a heel (wrestling term for those that portray the "bad guys") or a face (those that portray the "good guys") as they followed a series of events that built tension, and culminated into a wrestling match or series of matches.[2]

Event[edit]

During the Free For All pre show, Savio Vega defeated Marty Jannetty, only to be attacked by Justin Bradshaw after the match. The attack lead to the two facing off in the first match of the actual PPV, which was also Bradshaw's first PPV match. Savio Vega won the Caribbean Strap match between the two.[1][3] During the match two wrestlers from the local Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) promotion, Tommy Dreamer and The Sandman were shown at ringside, getting involved in the match before being thrown out of the arena. This marked the beginning of the working relationship between the WWF and ECW.[1][3] In his debut, Mark Henry forced Jerry Lawler to submit to a backbreaker, after which he was attacked by Marty Jannetty, Leif Cassidy, and Hunter Hearst-Helmsley. [1][3] During the final moments of the main event, Vader came to ringside and attacked Shawn Michaels as he had Mankind covered for a pin to draw a disqualification. This brought out Sycho Sid to chase Vader off. Subsequently The Undertaker, Mankind's rival, appeared from a coffin at ringside and attacked Mankind after the match was over.[1][3]
