The Superstars and the troops exchanged heartfelt stories about Christmas, their work, family, and stories that troops had to say from their time on the field. Some troops were with their families when the interaction happened.

In one clip, Lacey Evans talked to the kids and expressed how awesome their father is. It was a truly significant moment for everyone present. She took that time to thank the soldier for his services.

Another clip showed The Undertaker doing his classic ‘Rest in Peace’ gimmick for the troops on their request.

In fact, all Superstars took the opportunity of virtual meet-and-greet to convey their appreciation for the troops.

WWE’s annual Tribute to the Troops is scheduled for Sunday, December 6th. This will be the 18th time WWE is organizing this event.

WWE released a statement announcing three matches for the upcoming event

The first match will see Daniel Bryan, Jeff Hardy, The Street Profits face off against King Corbin, Sami Zayn, Dolph Ziggler, and Robert Roode.

Coming to the second match, it’s between WWE Champion Drew McIntyre and The Miz. This match was overdue since The Miz tried to cash in his Money in the Bank contract to challenge Randy Orton for the WWE Championship title when McIntyre made it crystal clear that only he can fight for it.

Finally, the third match is WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks & Bianca Belair vs. Bayley & Natalya. This will be an interesting match since it’s a tag team match, but Banks and Bayley are in opposite teams.

Apart from this, there might be appearances from some of the older stars. This is merely a prediction.

The point to keep in mind when watching this event is that the matches have nothing to do with current storylines.
