Last night was the annual WWE Tribute to the Troops. This year they were in Ft. Hood, Texas. On Saturday NBC aired the one hour version last night but last night USA aired the full two hour version of the special. All I got to say is what an incredible show with some great matches. Here the results of the show.
-John Cena, Rey Mysterio & Randy Orton def. WWE Champion The Miz, Alberto Del Rio & Wade Barrett
-Maj. Gen. William Grimsley def. Kane in an arm wrestling contest
-Natalya, Kelly Kelly & The Bella Twins def. Michelle McCool, Layla, Alicia Fox & Melina
-R-Truth def. Ted DiBiase
-Big Show & Kofi Kingston def. Jack Swagger & Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler
-Mark Henry won a 15-Man Battle Royal
They also had performances by Diddy-Dirty Money, Trace Adkins, and Cedric the Entertainer. They also aired videos from celebrities, President Bush and President Obama. This is one of main reason I still continue the WWE despite my unsatisfactory with what’s on TV these days.
I will admit the matches have been getting better. I’ve really enjoyed the Morrison-Sheamus feud. I also enjoy the interaction between Kozlov and Santino. That’s classic WWE comedy stuff. WWE needs to push the edge a little bit more and bring back the blood, the chair shots and unpredictability to TV.
WWE is starting to push their young talent in Dolph Ziggler, The Miz, Kofi Kingston, CM Punk, Jack Swagger, and John Morrison. These guys are the future and we need to see more of them. I hope 2011 will be a turn around year for WWE. They got the talent to do it so stay tuned for more.
