Tribute to the Troops tapings today in Norfolk, Virginia


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.
