Spoilers: 2011 WWE Tribute to the Troops Tapings

– Thanks to Byron and Angela for the following spoilers from last night’s WWE Tribute to the Troops tapings in Fayetteville, North Carolina. These will air December 14th on the USA Network and December 17th on NBC.

* The Crown Coliseum was just about packed to the max and the crowd was hot all night.

* The dark match was Santino Marella beating Jinder Mahal who played the heel to the Troops.

* Lilian Garcia stunned everyone with the Star Spangled Banner to open the show.

* After a Troops video package, Randy Orton vs. Wade Barrett kicked off the show. David Otunga ran in and attacked Orton, causing the DQ. Barrett set up a table but left before he could use it. Orton RKO’d Otunga and then put him through the table.

* Another nice Troops video.

* Zack Ryder, who had Sgt. Slaughter in his corner beat Jack Swagger. Slaughter ended up throwing Dolph Ziggler over the announcer’s table.

* Booker T joined Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole on commentary.

* Cody Rhodes and Daniel Bryan fought until Booker T interered. Booker attacked Cody and then did a Spin-A-Rooni to a big ovation.

* Mary J. Blige performed a few songs and the crowd loved it.

* Maria Menounos, Eve Torres, Kelly Kelly and Alicia Fox beat The Bella Twins, Natalya and Beth Phoenix in the usual Divas match. Menounos got the pin on Beth.

* Primo and Epico with Rosa Mendes beat Evan Bourne and Kofi Kingston in a non-title match.

* Sheamus defeated Drew McIntyre. Into the match, Sheamus wouldn’t stop beating on Drew so the referee disqualified him. They kept filming and Sheamus brought Drew back in the ring, hit the Brogue Kick and got the pin for the win.

* Nickelback was the next performance and they did the RAW theme song.

* Rey Mysterio appeared backstage to a big pop. He says he can’t compete. Alberto Del Rio and The Miz walk in. They went on about TLC when CM Punk walked in to chat with Rey.

* Comedian George Wallace performed next. We weren’t sure if this will air on TV but it was good.

* Big Show, John Cena and CM Punk beat The Miz, Alberto Del Rio and Mark Henry in the main event. Del Rio drove his car into the arena and John Cena got one of the biggest reactions I’ve ever heard at a WWE event. Cena also got the pin for his team.

After the main event the entire roster came out to the stage and the ring. Triple H and BG James, among others, were there but we couldn’t spot any of the McMahon family. Cena closed the show with a speech about the Troops.

    Raage must be a terrorist cause thats the ones our military are shooting.

  • Tombstonepiledriver

    ^^^^ So you never see a child in front of you? Real or “image”?

  • Malia

    @Matt I get what you’re saying but they don’t do it because they want too. The government orders them to do this. This is why I don’t wanna join the army. I couldn’t image seeing a child in front of me.

  • Raage

    Thats what they always said when they shoot my father, my sister and my little brother. “Oh , we dont mean it, we fight for you people, we fight for freedom”
    Freedom my ass.

  • Son of a StudDog

    OOOOOHHHHH They going to get my Dad started. Better watch out.

  • Cindy loo who

    Fort Bragg is home of the Airbourne. @ Matt educate yourself before making stupid comments. Oh wait u are allowed to make stupid comments bc my husband and others fight for your freedom. We loved the show last night. It was awesome that they took time to do that for our soldiers. Some soldiers just got home the day before.

  • @Matt im sure my husband isnt out shooting children cuz he just feels like it. he isnt a murderer. I am prior service myself and was a Mortuary Affairs Sp. and seen bodies of our men and woman…images no one should have to see. @ Bastion boogeyman- why do we get free shows??? welp I guess three tours that my husband has done (currently gone now again) which includes missing all three of our only childs birthdays so far, a little over half our marriage, crappy pay and long hours, being shot at, no sleep, leaving the family behind without being able to give them even basic info on your day or where you are so that they constantly worry etc etc etc doesnt mean much huh. I guess if you want to complain then…sign up buddy and then you can get these small perks we have. I didnt get to make the show since I have our child to care for while he is gone but everyone here that did get to go had a blast :)Lets get our troops home safe. Not all ( like my husband) gets to come home early. So dont forget our troop stil fighting just cuz the news is focused on the ones that are fortunant to come home early 🙂

  • Bastion boogeyman

    Why do these troops get their own show??

  • RatedR2J

    Will there goes the Celtic Cross Darn Sheamus

  • Tombstonepiledriver

    @Matt I’m going to take a little advice from StudDog and not let you get me started. Hope everyone else follows suit.

  • Matt

    @ matt lets not start up a fight about the troops just be happy they are coming home

  • Jimbo

    SO was that a DQ win for Cody or was it a no-contest?

  • SGT.E

    @ Matt so idiots like you can say whatever you want. I have been deployed to these combate areas and the troops bust their asses to make the world a safer place!

  • FX

    Yes Matt… Freedom. Like your freedom to be a jerk and post stupid comments on a website. That kind of freedom.

  • Matt

    Tribute to the murderers LOL. How many women and children they killed in the name of so called “freedom”?

  • SteelChef79

    They had in Fayetteville, NC which is home of Fort Bragg, one of the biggest Army bases on the east coast of the USA.

  • ctg

    john cena is awesome

  • Assassino

    Why are you guys complaining? Just shutup and enjoy the view. 😉

  • Tyler(:

    She’s a better performer than The Bellas and Kelly.

  • Real

    Why is Maria there you ask? Why dont you think about the audience they were playing to.


    I think Maria was a damn good pick lol.

  • MrDr3w

    Uhh….. Why is Maria Menounos there? I mean, she had an okay match when she was guest host of RAW, but why bring her back, and throw her in a match? Oh yeah, SHE ISN’T EVEN A WRESTLER!

  • Albert

    Maria pinned Beth?? ARE YOU SERIOUS?? how can we take the divas division seriously if the current champion and top diva got pinned by someone like Maria??? Its just stupid, but i cant stop supporting the divas no matter what happens :/

  • Matt

    Since the troops are pulling out they would probably get in the way if they were overseas at the bases…that’s my guess at least.

  • Andrew

    wait….aren’t these done near the Troops? why NC? o.O
