KID ROCK, DISNEY'S THE MUPPETS AND FLO RIDA JOIN WWE(R)'S 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF "TRIBUTE TO THE TROOPS" HOLIDAY SPECIAL

STAMFORD, Conn., November 12, 2012 - WWE (NYSE:WWE), USA Network and NBC will honor the United States Armed Forces with its 10th annual holiday special, WWE Tribute to the Troops presented by Slim Jim. The 10th anniversary holiday extravaganza will air as a two-hour television special on Wednesday, December 19 at 9/8C on USA Network and as a one-hour television special on Saturday, December 22 at 9/8C on NBC.

WWE Tribute to the Troops has become a holiday tradition and is considered TV's most patriotic and heartwarming show. In the grand tradition of Bob Hope, the holiday special will feature performances by Grammy Award-nominated, international superstars Kid Rock and Flo Rida, and WWE's biggest Superstars and Divas for thousands of military personnel and their families at the Scope Arena in Norfolk, VA. The show will also feature appearances by Disney's The Muppets, Access Hollywood and NBC Sports' Michelle Beadle and more. Kid Rock and Flo Rida join a renowned list of legendary performers who have entertained at WWE Tribute to the Troops including Mary J. Blige, Nickelback, Sean "Diddy" Combs' group Diddy - Dirty Money and Trace Adkins.

WWE is proud to have worked jointly with Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell in selecting Navy installations in the Norfolk, VA area for this annual celebration.

"We are excited to host WWE Tribute to the Troops in the Norfolk and Hampton Roads area," said Governor Bob McDonnell. "Virginia has long been committed to supporting our troops and this is another opportunity to thank them for their service. We are home to 125,000 active duty members, 830,000 veterans and so many military families. Naval Station Norfolk is the crown jewel of the United States Navy and it's important to pay tribute to and salute the brave men and women of the military and their families who serve our country. It's great to see that the WWE has chosen Virginia as the place to continue this holiday tradition."

"This is a proud moment for WWE to once again recognize America's servicemen and women as part of the 10th anniversary of WWE Tribute to the Troops," said Vince McMahon, Chairman and CEO, WWE. "We are honored to bring our unique brand of family-friendly entertainment to those who have sacrificed so much for our country."

This trip marks the 10th consecutive year that WWE will bring its one-of-a-kind entertainment to our service men and women to thank them for their commitment to the country and recognition of their sacrifices. WWE Superstars and Divas will spend the weekend doing activities designed to give back to sailors and their families including a Be a STAR anti-bullying rally and hospital visits as well as spending time with our servicemen and women.

WWE Tribute to the Troops will also chronicle WWE's goodwill visit to our troops overseas. WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon, WWE Superstars The Miz(R) and R-Truth and WWE Divas Eve and Layla will travel overseas to spread some much needed holiday cheer to the men and women serving our country far from home during the holiday season.
