Celebs Announced For Tribute to the Troops – Menounos To Wrestle



NBC TO AIR “WWE TRIBUTE TO THE TROOPS,” FEATURING MARY J. BLIGE, NICKELBACK, MARIA MENOUNOS, GEORGE WALLACE AND MISS USA ALYSSA CAMPANELLA ON SATURDAY, DECEMBER 17 AT 9 P.M. ET

NBC will join forces with the WWE once again to honor the United States Armed Forces with the fourth annual holiday telecast of “WWE Tribute to the Troops.” This year, WWE’s biggest Superstars, Divas and special guest stars, will travel to Fort Bragg, North Carolina for the hour-long special airing Saturday, December 17 at 9 p.m. on NBC.

In the grand tradition of Bob Hope, the most patriotic holiday special of the year will feature performances by Grammy Award winning R&B sensation Mary J. Blige, Multi-platinum rock band Nickelback, comedian George Wallace, and WWE’s biggest Superstars and Divas for thousands of Fort Bragg military personnel and their families at the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, NC.

Miss USA, Alyssa Campanella will make a special appearance along with Extra’s Maria Menounos, who will lace up her boots and step into the ring for a special Diva’s match.

The special will also include messages of encouragement and thanks from various celebrities such as Matthew McConaughey, Hugh Jackman, The Muppets, Robin Williams, Bradley Cooper and Nicole Kidman among others.

In keeping with the spirit of “WWE Tribute to the Troops” and bringing a little piece of Americana to service men and women overseas, the special will also chronicle WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon and Superstars Kofi Kingston, Brie Bella and Nikki Bella’s goodwill visit to troops in Afghanistan.

This trip marks the ninth consecutive year that WWE will bring its Bob Hope inspired entertainment to our service men and women to thank them for their commitment to the country and recognition of their sacrifices.
