On this day in history:

August 8th, 2008 | In the summer of 2008, the world was in the grip of Olympics fever. On a SmackDown that coincided with the Opening Ceremony of the Beijing Olympics, the women celebrated in the only way they know: costumes! In a Six-way Tag Team match, Maryse (a tennis player), Natalya (an equestrian rider) and Victoria (a gymnast) took on the team of Cherry (a boxer), Maria Kanellis (a.. summer skier?) and Michelle McCool (a volleyball player). In the end, the equestrian rider forced the skier to tap out, earning her team the gold medal victory.

What are your memories of this moment?

    Cherry’s last WWE match and appearance. ? This is also the match Maria broke Maryse’s nose sparking a mini feud between the two.

    I loved Smackdown’s Divas Division at this time. They were very consistent with storylines, development, matches, appearances etc. I just wish Victoria and Natalya interacted more with Michelle while she was Divas Champion instead of Maria and Maryse.

    Maria dressing as a skier for the Summer Olympics was pretty iconic.
