Thanks to Jonny Moniz for the following WWE Tribute to The Troops spoilers from tonight’s tapings in Washington, DC. These will premiere on the USA Network tomorrow night:


* Lilian Garcia is out for the National Anthem

* An opening segment with WWE United States Champion Roman Reigns, WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens, Rusev, Lana and Big Cass leads to Mick Foley making Reigns and Cass vs. Owens and Rusev for later


* Cesaro and Sheamus defeated Golden Truth, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson and The Shining Stars to become new #1 contenders. They will face RAW Tag Team Champions The New Day at Roadblock

* WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz came out to issue an open challenge for a non-title match. Apollo Crews answers and comes out with Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias. Crews ends up getting the win with a distraction from Fluffy

* SmackDown Tag Team Champions Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton and Luke Harper defeated Dolph Ziggler, Chad Gable and Jason Jordan

* Backstage segment with Bayley, Dana Brooke and a service dog

* Bayley defeated Dana Brooke with Charlotte Flair at ringside

* WWE Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann, TJ Perkins and Jack Gallagher defeated Brian Kendrick, Tony Nese and Drew Gulak

* Backstage segment with The Shield, The Club and The New Day gets a big pop

* Roman Reigns and Big Cass defeated Rusev and Kevin Owens in the main event


This is pretty much par for the course at one of these shows. The bad guys almost never win a thing at Tribute to the Troops and there’s no reason for them to. The show doesn’t mean a thing and it’s all a setup for the big ending with the Americans beating the evil foreigners. It’s not the most thrilling idea but it works perfectly well for the stories they’re going for with this show.
