It has been confirmed that WWE Tribute To The Troops will return in November.
WWE Tribute To The Troops is set to air on Sunday November 14th on Fox. The news comes after it was earlier reported by Mike Johnson of PWInsider, that the special show would be returning.
With the exception of 2019, the event has been held annually since 2003. It initially started with WWE putting on shows in Iraq and Afghanistan for US troops who were based in those countries. From 2010 WWE began taking the show to military bases around the United States.
WWE is proud to honor those who have served.

Speaking in November 2020, longstanding WWE employee Bruce Prichard credited John “Bradshaw” Layfield with coming up with the idea for the show.
“There would be no Tribute To The Troops if it were not for John Layfield. It was his idea and it was something that he got started. And so, it’s often overlooked I think, the good that we do, because most people like to dwell on the negative.”
Tribute to the Troops 2020 was taped at the ThunderDome due to restrictions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
While the report from Johnson also noted that WWE are planned on taping at least one match at the SmackDown taping on October 15th for the show.
