WWE announced that the 12th annual Tribute to the Troops special event will be held on Tuesday, December 9, at the Columbus Civic Center, in Columbus, Georgia.
“The commitment and bravery displayed by our service men and women are unparalleled and worthy of praise,” said Gov. Deal. “This annual Tribute to the Troops event provides us the opportunity to express our sincerest gratitude to those who put our safety above their own, and we’re excited WWE has chosen to host this event in the great state of Georgia.”
WWE Superstars and Divas will spend the next day, December 10, at Fort Benning, giving back to the servicemen and women and their families. Fort Benning, a U.S. Army post, supports over 120,000 active-duty military, families, retirees, and reserves.
Tapings of Smackdown will also be held on the same day in the same location for the first time.
The show will air later in the month on NBC.
