Crank up the AC, pour yourself a cold beverage, and maybe wear something that breathes because you've found yourself smack dab in the middle of a Heat Wave 1998.
We're checking out a standout match from that show that features the odd couple tag team champions, RVD and Sabu, defending their titles against the "Japanese Contingent" from FMW, Hayabusa and Jinsei Shinsaki.
Will our champions be able to get along long enough to retain their belts? Will the amount of cargo shorts in the crowd be higher than the number of shirtless men? Will Bill Alfonso ever stop with that damn whistle? Well you'll have to listen to find out!
Special thanks to one of our favorite guests, the returning Ana Espinoza!

Our "long" hiatus has finally ended!
(I mean, sure it was a long time but its not like it was a whole year or anything, jeez. This show is free! Get all up off my back about it.)
We return to Lucha Underground to have a look at the bloody, brutal, fire-filled Cero Miedo match that sees the arm-breaking Pentagon Jr challenging a thurible-toting Vampiro. Will Dasha's daddy be able to turn the clock back and rise to the challenge of the man looking to please his Master? Or will Ian Hodgkinson become yet another victim to the dark luchador?
Also, who the heck is this Master fella and what's his deal? You have to assume that's going to resolve up at some point, right?
Joining your croix boys to break down all the action and apply the (patent pending) STAR Rating system is Joel Bednarz!
