On this day 24 years ago…

On this day 24 years ago, WWE In Your House 3 emanated from the Saginaw Civic Center in Saginaw, Michigan.

In the main event WWE Champion Diesel & WWE Intercontinental Champion, being billed as “Two Dudes with Attitudes” defeated WWE Tag Team Champions Yokozuna & The British Bulldog (replacing Owen Hart) with Jim Cornette & Mr. Fuji.

The match had the stipulation of the WWE Tag Team Championships, WWE Intercontinental Championship and WWE Championship all on the line.

If either Diesel or Shawn Michaels would have defeated Yokozuna or The British Bulldog then “Two Dudes with Attitudes” would become the WWE Tag Team Champions. If Yokozuna or Bulldog would have pinned or submitted Shawn Michaels then the man who did so would become the WWE Intercontinental Champion. Finally, if Yokozuna or Bulldog would have pinned or submitted Diesel then the man who did would become the WWE Champion.

On the night of the show the WWF announced that The British Bulldog had to replace Owen Hart in the match, as Hart was with his wife at the hospital, as she was giving birth to their second child. Near the end of the match it was revealed that this was just a storyline as Owen Hart rushed to the ring in full wrestling gear and interfered in the match. Moments later Diesel pinned Owen Hart to win the match and supposedly win the tag team championship, but it was later announced that while Diesel and Michaels did win the match they did not win the tag team championship as Owen Hart was not the legal man in the match.

What are your memories of this match?
