WWE has entered yet another unique business deal. The brand is partnering with the National Medal of Honor Museum Foundation to help tell the stories of the recipients of the prestigious Medal of Honor award. The prize is the nation’s highest honor given to service members for valor in combat.

WWE will honor several Medal of Honor recipients at their WrestleMania On-Sale Party in Dallas. The new museum is set to be built in Arlington, Texas. The company described all the details of the new partnership in a press release. Stephanie McMahon touted the new partnership.

“On behalf of WWE, we are honored to partner with the National Medal of Honor Museum Foundation and help shine a spotlight on these incredible heroes. The museum will leave a lasting legacy not only in the Dallas and Arlington communities, but across the entire country.”

There are fewer than 4,000 people who have received the National Medal of Honor across every branch of the armed forces. The award has been received by servicemembers who served in every major American conflict since the Civil War. The press released described the coming museum and monument.

“The National Medal of Honor Museum, Monument and Leadership Institute will inspire Americans by honoring and preserving the history of the highest military decoration awarded for valor in combat. Serving as a national landmark – and located in America’s heartland in Arlington, Texas – the Museum will provide an unrivaled visitor experience and illustrate the historical thread of sacrifice, patriotism and courage that runs through all U.S. military service members, past and present. Beyond its state-of-the-art, interactive experiences, a critical part of the Museum’s mission will be to use the stories of Medal of Honor recipients to inspire their fellow Americans and motivate them to be their best selves.”

WWE has a long history of honoring the United States military. The company’s Tribute to the Troops event was pre-taped and will air on November 14. This is the events return after the COVID-19 pandemic stopped touring for most of 2020.
