Today in History: SmackDown catches Olympics fever


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?
