NORFOLK, Va. — WWE’s Most Patriotic Show of the Year, Tribute to the Troops featured high-octane competition, top notch musical performances from Flo Rida and Kid Rock and special appearances from Disney’s The Muppets, in honor of America’s bravest men and women. Emanating from the U.S. Navy’s largest installation, the 10th anniversary of WWE Tribute to the Troops was an extraordinary experience.

The Celtic Warrior joined forces with Randy Orton to battle World Heavyweight Champion Big Show and Dolph Ziggler in the opening contest of WWE Tribute to the Troops. Sheamus and Orton were ready for a fight, keeping The World’s Largest Athlete and The Showoff reeling. With The Viper dominating Ziggler early in the contest, the World Heavyweight Champion and Mr. Money in the Bank decided to walk away from the bout and were counted out.

SmackDown General Manager Booker T then restarted the match and demanded that a winner be decided. Unfortunately, Ziggler and Big Show were never truly on the same page and Orton and Sheamus took advantage. Despite Orton aggravating his shoulder injury, the teamwork and resilience displayed by The Celtic Warrior and WWE’s Apex Predator — as well as an RKO and Brogue Kick delivered to Big Show — were enough to secure victory.
