We are back and it is time to talk about the annual Tribute to the Troops Show.

We hear from JBL about how the show started. He says that he was in Iraq for the second time and since his family was in the military. He was there with Ron Simmons and he thought it would be great to have the WWE come to the war zone and see the forward operations bases to see where the soldiers live. They could show the soldiers how grateful they were for what they do.

He says that he is honored to go over there to show the troops.

Ryback has run roughshod through the WWE since he came into the company. He is the subject of the Saturday Morning Spotlight.
