2011 Tribute to the Troops Results

WWE 2011 Tribute to the Troops Results from Fort Bragg, NC:

The latest annual Tribute to the Troops show came from Fayetteville, NC.  It started off with a video package about the US military with CM Punk, Eve, Orton, Rhodes, Henry, Ziggler and John Cena giving comments about the troops.

After pyrotechnics went off and Cole/Lawler discussed the main events, they had a pre-recorded video message from President Obama to the Troops.  Randy Orton came out for the first match.

In the opening bout, Randy Orton and Wade Barrett fought to a countout.  Late in the match, Orton tried for the DDT on Barrett through the ropes, but Barrett escaped.  On the outside, Barrett managed to ram Orton's back into the crowd barrier.  Both men kept fighting and preventing each other from getting in the ring as the ref counted them out.

Post-match, Barrett got the upperhand and put a table in the ring, then threw Orton into the ring.  Barrett went to set up the table, but Orton got to his feet and dropkicked him down.  Orton set up the table and got ready to do something, but David Otunga rushed into the ring to attack Orton.  Cole said Otunga has beef from a street fight weeks ago.  Otunga tried to put Orton through the table, but got the RKO instead.  With Barrett watching from on stage, Orton put Otunga through the table by Powerbomb.

Jack Swagger came out for his match with Dolph Ziggler accompanying him in street clothes.  Zack Ryder came out to the top of the stage with a mic to cut a promo on how he speaks for everyone in the arena that they don't want Ziggler representing the US.  Ryder then introduced his new big bro-ski, Sgt. Slaughter, who came to the ring and revealed he had a Ryder headband on.

During the match, Ryder was knocked to the outside.  Ziggler came over while the ref was distracted and clotheslined Ryder down.  He then layed on the commentators table pretending he was using Twitter on his phone.  Sgt. Slaughter came over and confronted Ziggler, who got up and was clotheslined over the table.  Swagger got out of the ring to lay out Slaughter, then beat up Ryder to bring back into the ring.  However, Ryder got the upperhand and hit Rough Ryder to win it.  Post-match, Slaughter put the Cobra Clutch on Swagger for a bit then threw him down.

Kelly was fighting Beth as the legal divas.  Kelly got her airplane spinning headscissors, but it set off a big brawl as all the others cleared out the ring.  Maria was still on the apron and tagged in to try to get a pin on Beth.  Beth got up and in her face, then shoved her into the corner.  As Beth rushed at her, Maria jumped up and did a Sunset Flip pinfall on Beth to win the match.

During the match, Booker T went over to check on Daniel Bryan when he got knocked out of the ring.  That brought Rhodes over to confront him before tossing Bryan back into the ring.  Rhodes tried to expose Bryan's ribs to take advantage, but then got distracted by Booker at ringside.  Rhodes ducked out through the ropes to jaw with Booker, and got punched instead.  Bryan scored the quick schoolboy pin for the win.  Post-match, Rhodes taunted Booker and invited him into the ring.  Booker obliged, but got the upperhand on Rhodes several times, before Rhodes left with his IC title belt.  Booker revved up the crowd and did the Spin-a-rooney.
