It's a tournament week themed around the Olympics, which means four days of exciting hair cosplay from Chris Hardwick, a bevy of stars ostensibly from various nations, and lots of jokes about how they can't use the word "Olympics" or the rings. This is one of those rare weeks where nearly all the scores and decisions represented what I actually thought, although on points I think Flula Borg edged out Milana Vayntrub. But I don't begrudge her the gold medal in the slightest. Kudos to. Yakov Smirnoff for leaving Branson, MO and performing exactly how you'd expect.
For those of you who are sick of wrestling, now's a good time for me to start Sega Saturdays, where we look back at Sega in the late 90's and early 2000's. Because that was a glorious time, when there was a ton of money to make music and intro videos and they were all GLORIOUS and over the top and insane.
For example, Burning Rangers. Never played it, but oh, that theme song. This isn't even the full version of the theme song. But it's out there if this makes you wanna hear it. And then there's the opening theme in English, which is so much worse it may be better.

Smackdown has four matches to Raw's six going into Summerslam, so the 3:2 ration is being maintained. Smackdown's lead-in to the PPV is mostly boring and pointless, but had a couple of nifty things and one very, very offputting moment.
