Today in History: The Divas Catch Olympics Fever

On this day in history:

August 8th, 2008 | Four years ago, the world was in the grip of Summer Olympics fever, much like we are now. On a SmackDown that coincided with the Opening Ceremony of the Beijing Olympics, the Divas celebrated in the only way they know: costumes! In a 6-Diva Tag Team match, Maryse (a tennis player), Natalya (an equestrian rider) and Victoria (a gymnast) took on the team of Cherry (a boxer), Maria (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.
