"WWE Tribute to the Troops" honors U.S. military for second straight year
World Wrestling Entertainment and NBC will, once again, honor the members of the United States Armed Forces during its second annual holiday special, "WWE Tribute to the Troops," in an hour-long special that will air on Saturday, Dec. 19 (9 p.m./8 CT) on NBC.
Following an entertainment tradition established by Bob Hope, WWE Superstars and Divas will head to Iraq this holiday season to put a smile on the faces of the troops serving in the U.S. military and to give thanks for their commitment to our country. This trip marks the seventh consecutive year that WWE will make its annual pilgrimage to the front lines.
"WWE Tribute to the Troops" is a heart-warming special that chronicles the WWE Superstars and Divas' visit and time spent with American service men and women at forward operating bases. The program culminates with a live performance by the WWE Superstars and Divas in a ring, brought specially from the United States to Iraq, in front of thousands of military personnel.
