As you can see, the lineup for the tag team match and the other two matches will be having superstars from both Raw and SmackDown confirming that Tribute to the Troops is going to be a dual-branded event.
A graphic has been released through which more Superstars from Raw and SmackDown have been being advertised for the special event. The names included the likes of Big E, Bayley, WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, Bianca Belair, WWE Champion Drew McIntyre, Braun Strowman, SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Street Profits, Rey Mysterio, Alexa Bliss, SmackDown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks, Ricochet, and Lacey Evans.
It should be noted that these Superstars have neither been confirmed to appear on Tribute to the Troops and nor WWE announced the capacity of their involvements. Also, Braun Strowman is reportedly out of action with a knee injury who may not make an appearance on the show. Sunday’s special will also feature a musical performance by country singer HARDY while matches and other footage will be taped later this week.
