Later story (Also PWInsider)With all the recent reshuffling of WWE live events for late November and early December, the belief among some in the company is that they will not be doing a tour with the USO this year to film a "Tribute to the Troops" special. '
I don't have that 100% confirmed, but the time period where the roster would usually fly to the Middle East is now comprised of house shows for both brands. So, stay tuned.
I'm hopeful that there will still be some form of special this year personally, as I've long felt it was the classiest night of the year for the industry.
I'm kind of saddened by this. I always loved that they went over there to entertain the troops who risk their lives to keep us safe. However, I understand that this year has been tough on the WWE's international schedule, and I'm glad that they want to do one here.To follow-up on a story from earlier today, we have now confirmed that there will not be a WWE overseas "Tribute To The Troops" show in the Middle East this year. However, WWE is looking into doing a similar style show domestically at a military base, possibly in Texas.
