World Tag Team Championships - Diesel & Shawn Michaels

September 24, 1995 - September 25, 1995

Diesel, the WWE Champion, and Shawn Michaels, the Intercontinental Champion, were scheduled to face the World Tag Team Champions, Owen Hart & Yokozuna at In Your House 3. The match stipulated that if Diesel or Shawn Michaels were pinned, the Superstar that pinned him would win their Championship. If Michaels or Diesel score a pin, they would become the new World Tag Team Champions. Jim Cornette, who managed Yokozuna and Hart, tried to reschedule the match because Hart had not shown up at the building. But the match took place and The British Bulldog took Hart's place. As the match went on, Hart stormed the ring and flew in off the top rope. Diesel caught him in mid-air and gave him the Jackknife Powerbomb for the win. The title reign lasted lasted less than 24 hours for Diesel and Michaels, though, as Hart and Yokozuna's lawyer, Clarence Mason, found a loophole to give them the titles back.
