Vince McMahon visited United States troops who are overseas for WWE Raw’s special, “Tribute to the Troops,” according to an Inquisitr report on Friday.

McMahon and his crew arrived in Dubai on Dec. 19. They visited with the troops, visited some hospitals in the area, and hosted some wrestling matches. Reportedly, the television special is 60 minutes culled from two hours of video shot during the Dubai excursion. The program will be aired on NBC on Saturday, Dec. 28, at 7 p.m. CT.

A press release states that WWE Tribute to the Troops is considered the most patriotic show on television. In the grand tradition of Bob Hope, WWE has been entertaining American military personnel both overseas and in the U.S. for more than a decade.

Reportedly, WWE received the first-ever Legacy of Hope Award, which was named after Bob Hope, in 2004.

The presentation is being hosted by Michelle Beadle of “Access Hollywood” and comedian Jeff Dunham will perform. There will also be special messages from Christina Applegate, Stephen Colbert, Will Ferrell, Ryan Seacrest, and Bruce Willis.

Vince McMahon, 68, is a professional wrestling promoter, announcer, commentator, film producer, actor and – on occasion – professional wrestler. He is the Chairman and CEO of WWE (the World Wrestling Entertainment).
