Lance Russell and Dave Brown call today’s action from the WMC-TV5 studio in Memphis, Tennessee.
There’s no particular reason for this one, but seeing as this show happened in the month of February and comes in at just under two hours, I thought I might as well review it. I’ve set some time aside next week to work on Six of the Best for WCW SuperBrawl, so keep a look out for that to be up before February comes to a close.
Without further ado though, let’s take a look at In Your House 6!

So if you missed that review, you can read this one and then go back and check that one out. I will finish this series of 1995 WWF columns on Friday).
