For the 10th consecutive year, WWE staged its annual Tribute to the Troops. The event itself took place on Dec. 9, but a two-hour version of it aired on Wednesday night on USA Network. Not only did it feature several solid matches, but there were plenty of other guests as well.
Although Tribute to the Troops generally has no connection to the actual WWE product, it is always a very fun show as well as a meaningful one due to the entertainment it brings the United States servicemen and women. This year's event was held in Norfolk, Va. and definitely seemed to please the crowd as usual.
Most of the WWE's top stars competed, including John Cena, Sheamus, Randy Orton, Ryback and many more. Since Tribute to the Troops is essentially a house show on a much larger scale, storylines didn't come into play very much and the matches were fairly basic, but there was a lot of action nonetheless.
Here is a complete match-by-match breakdown of the event, and if you didn't catch the two-hour show on USA, a condensed, one-hour version will air Dec. 22 at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
