WWE to Have Ship Setting for ‘Tribute to the Troops,’ Which Superstars Are Competing?


WrestlingInc has confirmed the location of this year’s ‘Tribute to The Troops’ special and we have a list of who is expected to appear on the special.

San Diego, California will play host to the 15 year anniversary of the show. For the first time in years, the matches for the two hour special are being taped outside on or near a ship. More specifically, the location appears to be USS Dewey (DDG-105).

Superstars from ‘Raw,’ ‘Smackdown Live’ and NXT have all been spotted in the area, with a few legends such as Sgt. Slaughter and Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat have also appeared in photographs.

If you want an idea as to what the ring will look like, Samoa Joe took to Twitter to do just that, also confirming his presence and likely appearance at the event:
