Only two matches shown:

Jeff Hardy, CM Punk, and R-Truth defeated JBL, Miz and Morrison when Hardy pinned JBL with the Swanton.

John Cena, Batista and Rey Mysterio defeated Randy Orton, Chris Jericho, and The Big Show when Batista and Cena did a double finish of a Batista Bomb and FU on Jericho and Orton.

The weirdest thing was Big Show seemingly turning face in Iraq. He and Jericho got into an argument that ended with Show chokeslamming him and bailing on his team.

Also, Cryme Tyme dressed as Santa and brought out Maria, Kelly Kelly, Eve, Mickie James, and Alicia Fox in Santa's Little Helpers outfits to give out presents to the troops.

Jericho and Orton pretty much have identical entrances now, what with them coming down the ramp purposely devoid of any posing or mannerisms.

I must say, as an hour show, this year's Tribute to the Troops was much more palatable. Frankly, you see one video package of Superstars and Divas interacting with the soldiers set to Nickelback and Stain'd, you've seen them all.

Obviously, since this was taped two weeks ago, Jeff Hardy and Miz and Morrison were sans their newly won World Title belts, but Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler announced them as champions.

Funniest moment was JBL's entrance in an enormous combat vehicle, dressed in a flak jacket, helmet with the cowboy hat on top of the helmet.

I'm surprised they never mentioned that Orton was once a Marine. Then again, I doubt they'd want to mention his dishonorable discharge.

I always liked the Big Show as a face, but I'm sure that these shows don't really contribute to WWE canon....if such exists.

Great show, but I really like the two hour shows. John makes a good point, though: Seeing them gladhand the troops and pose with their guns is all fun the first time around, but it gets old quickly. I really enjoy the TttT shows much more of the in-ring work; they really look like they're having fun out there.

Unicow, unicow...he's a unicorn cow!

I always liked the idea of the Tribute to the Troops show, I just don't see the logic in always showing thoes video clips that look the same every year. I get they all had a ood time, we have heard noting but that the whole time they were there on

You know I was thinking about Japanese wrestling myself. I saw JHW II and III, and I really enjoyed it. But my favorite was the match in JHW II with Mima Shimoda (who really reminds me of Trish Stratus, but way more wrestling experience).
