Happy Holidays to one and all! It's that time of the year again where we all settle down with loved ones to eat and drink too much, so why not indulge in the annual, uber-patriotic cringe-fest that is the WWE's Tribute to the Troops? Though nothing of significance ever really happens on these shows, it was nevertheless a surprisingly entertaining broadcast, full of unexpected appearances from famous actors and singers, weird (and occasionally funny) comedy segments, one shocking result, and clear evidence that the WWE is in conflict with itself as to whether it's really a PG enterprise. It's the show a lot of fans decide to give a miss every year, but with a beer in hand and the fast-forward button ready for those terrible musical interludes, there's actually a solid hour of entertaining television to behold. Here are 27 WTF moments from WWE Tribute to the Troops 2015...
27. All Those Celebrity Cameos
As with every Tribute to the Troops, the WWE ambushes press junkets all over the U.S. in an attempt to get as many celebrities to wish the troops their best, resulting in a spate of unexpected celebrities making brief cameos on WWE programming. The list includes Eva Longoria, Neil Patrick Harris, Bruce Willis, Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera (with the most amazingly bouffant hair ever), Pharrell Williams, Joel McHale, Wesley freaking Snipes, Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell, Joe Manganiello and many more. Most of them are just reading from pre-written autocues, but it breaks up the patriotic monotony a little bit throughout the show, so that's good.
