The WWF's business has never been hotter than it was in 1998. Less than a year after telling Bret that he couldn't afford his contract, Vince bought a casino! Hear the details of that deal plus everything that went into creating SummerSlam on today's look back at the Summer of 1998! Bruce and Conrad will discuss the thinking behind the "baby face main event" and whether or not it was a mistake in hindsight, why Edge was the mystery partner, the pressure behind having a ladder match at MSG at the time, the Insane Clown Posse, what Bruce hated about this show, and so much more!
