Howie Mandel will be at WWE's Tribute To The Troops

WWE Tribute To The Troops

Comedian Howie Mandel will be appearing at Tuesday's WWE television tapings in Jacksonville, FL, as part of the Tribute to the Troops show.

Tonight's show will be a combination taping of Smackdown (which airs Wednesday in Canada and Thursday in most of the rest of the world), and Tribute to the Troops which is scheduled to air on 12/23 in the U.S. on the USA Network.

Mandel, best known for hosting Deal Or No Deal and being a judge on America's Got Talent, is the only celebrity thus far announced as appearing on the show. Military personnel and their families from the Jacksonville Naval Air Station, Naval Station Mayport, and Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base will be allowed in for free.

WWE started doing Tribute to the Troops in 2003 as the brainchild of John Layfield. At first, WWE performers would put on a show at an international military location, but in recent years, it was taped in conjunction with a regular television taping.
