WWE Tribute to the Troops spoilers from Ontario, California

WWE taped three matches Friday at the SmackDown taping in Ontario, California, for the Sunday, November 14th Tribute to the Troops special that will air on Fox.

The following are spoilers for that show:

  • WWE Champion Big E defeated Dolph Ziggler (w/ Bobby Roode): Big E won with the Big Ending and gave Roode one as well after the match when he tried to jump him.
  • Bianca Belair defeated Liv Morgan
  • WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns (w/ Paul Heyman) defeated Shinsuke Nakamura (w/ Rick Boogz): The Usos came out and beat up Boogz when he started playing his guitar. Reigns delivered a superman punch on the outside of the ring to Nakamura and finished him with a spear inside the ring for the win.

Lillian Garcia returned to sing the U.S. national anthem and mini-American flags were given to fans as SmackDown ended.

The show's airtime will vary depending on whatever market it airs in.

Earlier on Friday, PW Insider reported that matches would be taped Friday for the special.

The annual special was filmed at the Thunderdome last year due to the pandemic and featured Drew McIntyre defeating The Miz in the show's featured bout. WWE has done such a show every year since 2003 with the show airing on TV with the exception of 2019. 

WWE began filming the show domestically starting in 2010, a change from the original format of visiting U.S. military bases overseas.
