On Tuesday, the WWE taped its Tribute to the Troops show in San Diego, and the show will be broadcast on Dec. 14. But PWTorch.com got their hands on the matches and shared the results.
The Shield defeated The Bar and Samoa Joe in a six-man tag team match, while the newly formed Absolution alliance defeated Bayley, Mickie James, and Sasha Banks. Charlotte defeated newcomer Ruby Riott in a singles match.
The Usos and New Day won an eight-man tag team match, defeating Sheldon Benjamin & Chad Gable and Rusev & Aiden English. Finally, Shinsuke Nakamura, Randy Orton, and AJ Styles defeated Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, and Jinder Mahal.
WWE began its Tribute to the Troops show in 2003, and it became an annual event. Some of the previous shows were held in Afghanistan and Iraq, but every one since 2010 has been filmed somewhere in the United States. Last year's show was taped at the Verizon Center in Washington.
So according to the spoilers, the WWE opted to maintain its current feuds and rivalries that are going on. Many of these bouts will be rekindled at the Night of Champions pay-per-view show on Dec. 17, 2017. It includes a WWE Championship match between AJ Styles and Jinder Mahal, plus Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn vs. Randy Orton and a partner of his choosing.
Judging by the spoilers, it doesn't appear any more stipulations or additions to any storylines were added. With that, we will wait and see what builds up over the final two episodes of SmackDown before Night of Champions. But more importantly, it sounded like the Tribute to the Troops was yet another massive success, so kudos to the WWE for doing it right again.
