Most automatic transmissions fail due to a breakdown of the transmission fluid (oil) caused by overheating.

The effect is also cumulative. Short term exposure to high heat levels (or even prolonged exposure to moderate heat) can break down the oil to the point where even very short episodes of overheating will lead to failure.
