WWE has a lot of traditions, and some fans have wondered if anything will change after Endeavor merges the company with the UFC to form the new TKO Holdings Group. It seems that one tradition will not change.

WWE’s annual Tribute to the Troops show is a long-standing tradition for the company, as they thank the U.S. military. For years, WWE has organized this event to show appreciation to the men and women serving in the armed forces. The show features top WWE Superstars aiming to boost troop morale worldwide. Although it’s rarely a show that has any impact on the storyline, it’s usually a fun event to catch every year.

Wrestle Votes reports that WWE is making plans for another Tribute to the Troops show in December. This falls in line with when the company usually schedules this event. It appears that fans at SmackDown will get a bit more action that week.

“This years’ Tribute to the Troops event will be coincide with SmackDown on December 8th from Providence, RI. Likely a post show taping as in years past.”


We’ll have to see if WWE airs Tribute to the Troops this year. They usually show the event in some capacity, but they did skip a year of broadcasting the event, even though it still took place.

Keep checking back with Ringside News for more on this story, and much more, because you never know what will happen next. WWE’s dedication to the troops is likely to continue, as Tribute to the Troops will continue past the UFC merger.
