WWE taping Tribute to the Troops show tonight
WWE will be taping the Tribute to the Troops television show today at
The Scope Arena in Norfolk, Virginia. This will be the 10th annual of the
Christmas tradition which in the past has been taped in Iraq and
Afghanistan as well. The Scope Arena will be filled with U.S. military
personnel and their families as no general public will be allowed inside.
Kid Rock and Flo Rida will be doing live performances and there will also
be appearances by The Muppets, Access Hollywood and NBC Sports’ Michelle
Beadle and others. Virginia is the home of 125,000 active duty members and
830,000 veterans so it was a pretty good choice of location for the
Tributes show. Fort Hood, Texas, and Fayetteville, North Carolina, were
the other two locations which the Tributes show was filmed at in the
United States. USA Network will air a two hour special of the show on
Wednesday, December 19, while NBC will air a one hour presentation of it
on Saturday, December 22.
