WWE Superstars and Divas join some of the hottest celebrities in entertainment for this year’s WWE Tribute to the Troops.

This year, the show emanates from Fort Bragg, home to the Army Airborne Forces, Special Forces, U.S. Army Forces Command and U.S. Army Reserve Command.

The hour long programme features performances by Grammy award winning R&B sensation Mary J. Blige, multi-platinum rock band Nickelback, comedian George Wallace, and WWE’s biggest Superstars and Divas for thousands of Fort Bragg military personnel and their families at the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, NC.

Miss USA 2011, Alyssa Campanella, will make a special appearance along with Extra’s Maria Menounos, who will lace up her boots and step into the ring for a special Diva’s match.

The special will also include messages of encouragement and thanks from various celebrities such as Matthew McConaughey, Hugh Jackman, The Muppets, Robin Williams, Bradley Cooper and Nicole Kidman, among others.

The show, which aired in the USA last week, will be shown in the UK on Christmas Eve at 7pm on Sky Sports 3 and repeated later that night at 12am.
