WWE has declared that the upcoming December 8 episode of SmackDown will be a special “Tribute To The Troops” edition of the show, and they’re pulling out all the stops to make it memorable.

In an exciting announcement, WWE revealed that the two-time 2024 Grammy-nominated duo, The War and Treaty, will be performing live during Friday’s episode. This special performance is set to honor U.S. service members, veterans, and their families in a heartwarming way.

The anticipation for this event is building, and with the addition of CM Punk’s return to the blue brand for the first time since 2014 and a WrestleMania 34 rematch between Charlotte and Asuka, it’s shaping up to be a must-watch show.
