(My reviews are a little out of order as I accidentally posted the Monday Night RAW that happened the night after this show on Friday instead of posting this In Your House review. 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).

Since it is Halloween, McMahon taunts the federal government by dressing up like a prisoner. Lawler even asks if he got fitted for that outfit a year ago. For his part, Lawler dresses up like a dentist. Even the Spanish announce team gets in on the act as they are dressed like devils and WWF logo in the bottom left corner of the screen is done like a jack-o-lantern.
–Isaac Yankem and Bret Hart cut dueling promos against each other from inside of a steel cage to hype their match tonight. Jerry Lawler adds his thoughts for good measure. The setting looks cool as the ring is only illuminated by a few stage lights while the rest of the arena is dark.

–Vince McMahon and Jerry Lawler are doing commentary and they are live from Hartford, Connecticut.

–Michael Cole and Jerry “The King” Lawler are in the booth and they are live from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
