WWE will be airing Tribute to the Troops tonight on USA Network, a show that was taped yesterday in conjunction with Smackdown Live from the Verizon Center in Washington, DC.
This was a dual-brand show with Michael Cole, JBL, and Byron Saxton on commentary and both Stephanie and Shane McMahon doing the introductions. Former Raw ring announcer Lilian Garcia was brought back to sing the national anthem to kick things off.
Taped matches for tonight include The Shining Stars vs Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson vs Golden Truth vs Sheamus and Cesaro; Apollo Crews vs The Miz; American Alpha and Dolph Ziggler vs Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton, and Luke Harper; Dana Brooke vs Bayley; Rich Swann, TJ Perkins, and Jack Gallagher vs The Brian Kendrick, Drew Gulak, and Tony Nese; Roman Reigns and Big Cass vs Kevin Owens and Rusev.
The WWE Superstars spent the whole day with the troops around the DC area and visited the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery, Coast Guard Station Washington, and Home of the Commandants.
