WWE will broadcast Tribute to the Troops on FOX on Sunday 11/14, has confirmed.  The actual time of the airing may differ depending on your local market.

With the exception of 2019, Tribute to the Troops has been broadcast since December 2003.  The event first began as a USO tour put together by WWE where they would bring a live event over to American troops stationed in the Middle East and tour different bases meeting with servicemen and women.   

Over the years, Tribute events have been held in Iraq and Afghanistan before moving to domestic locations starting with 2010.  Since 2010, the show has evolved into a patriotic event designed to celebrate those who have entered into military service for the United States.   The Tribute events have led to WWE being honored by the USO, The Army and Air Force Exchange Program and the G.I. Combat Film Festival and other accolades.   

Last year's event was taped inside the WWE Thunderdome due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As broke earlier this afternoon, WWE is scheduled to tape at least one match at tonight''s Smackdown taping in Ontario, CA for the 2021 Tribute to the Troops special.
