Bobby Lashley On The Importance Of WWE Tribute To The Troops



WWE SmackDown Superstar Bobby Lashley has shared just how important WWE’s annual Tribute to the Troops celebration is to those who have served.

On a recent edition of “The Ten Count” podcast, Lashley, who was a sergeant in the U.S. Army, spoke about WWE’s annual celebration. He said,

“I think [for] some guys it’s more important than others. I think some guys understand the importance of doing stuff for the troops but then some people that have been in the trenches that know the military — like I grew up in a military household, my dad was 26 years, my sisters, myself, we all went through the military. So it has a little bit of special meaning to me as well as a few other people that have been there like Montez [Ford] one of my partners, he was in the Marines for a while.

“So just having the opportunity to tell boys and girls, look we remember you guys, we look out for you guys, and we still have heart for you guys, and we’d do anything for you guys. So it’s a really cool event and a good opportunity for us to pack the stadium and just put on a good show for the troops.”

On this week’s episode of SmackDown, Lashley defeated Karrion Kross in the U.S. Title Contenders Tournament. He will face Santos Escobar in the next round.

WWE Tribute to the Troops was first introduced in 2003 and was the idea of JBL. The former WWE Champion was on commentary for this week’s show.
