With WWE 13 including playable Attitude Era characters and WWE enjoying its 25th anniversary of its summer extravaganza PPV, it's only fitting that we take a stroll down memory lane and relive the greatest matches and moments at SummerSlam from the Attitude Era. 

While fans today know SummerSlam as more of a big summer party than anything else due to the PG Era, those who watched SummerSlam during the Attitude Era remember it only as a summer war zone.

The 1998 tagline was "Highway to Hell," and it certainly felt like it when Goliath's "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and The Undertaker battled for the WWF Championship in the main event at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Like the poster, the event truly felt larger than life with two icons of the industry going to war in the middle of a scorching hot summer. As if the summer heat wasn't enough, the intensity and stakes were hellacious as well. 

Fittingly for the event and what everyone came to expect during the Attitude Era, hellacious and iconic moments were the norm. An era that pushed the envelope and captivated more people than ever before with defining moments and matches, the SummerSlam event was at its peak between 1998 and 2001.
