With the show being taped today, WWE has announced broadcast details for Tribute to the Troops 2018.
Tribute to the Troops will air on the USA Network as a two-hour special on Thursday, December 20 at 9 p.m. Eastern time. The show is being taped at Fort Hood in Texas today.
Former “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart will appear on this year’s Tribute to the Troops, and country music singer Morgan Wallen will perform for the troops in attendance.
This is the 16th annual Tribute to the Troops and the second time the event has been held at Fort Hood. Today’s activities also include “a Be a STAR bullying prevention rally, as well as hospital visits and military outreach initiatives at various installations across the base.”
WWE is also making a financial contribution to Celebration of Love, which is “a local non-profit organization dedicated to supporting U.S. soldiers, veterans and their families through their Soldiers of America program. This year, Celebration of Love is holding a Christmas Toy Drive, gifting 1,200 bikes and toys to military children at Fort Hood.”
Last year’s Tribute to the Troops took place at Naval Base San Diego and featured wrestlers from both Raw and SmackDown.
