As we approach the dog days of summer, WU decided to once again utilize their idea they used earlier in 2017, and relive the PPVs of the Big 3 from August of 1998. And what better to start the hottest month of the year than with ECW Heatwave 1998?

Severse huge matches await the Hara Arena, including the main event, where Buh Buh Ray, D-Von, and Big Dick, the Dudleys, will take on Sandman, Little Spike Dudley, and Tommy Dreamer. Can Tommy gain revenge after the 3D put Beulah out of wresting? Or will the Dudleys put even more carnage next to Beulah in the hospital?

And, the tag titles are on the as Sabu and RVD put the belts up against the Japanese icons of Hayabusa and Jinsei Shinzaki (bless you...). Can the dysfunctional tag champs pull another victory from somewhere? Or will they finally be overtaken by the Japanese legends?

And, as always, stick around for the best and worst match and cash and trash of the show in our big finish. ECW starts the August 98 reviews in a hot way with their highest regarded show ever, as WU reviews ECW Heatwave 1998
