Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, 12.24.15: WWE Tribute To The Troops

By @B_Rock1978

Season's Greetings.....or maybe Season's Beatings from the WWE. Happy Holidays gang and welcome to Wrestling Lockup with Brandon: Tribute To The Troops Edition. The WWE brought their Christmas festivities to Jacksonville, Florida, to put on their yearly tribute show, to the men and women fighting overseas and unable to participate in Christmas with their families. This year's show promised a huge sixteen man tag team main event and plenty of holiday cheer for everyone. Let's get to the recap of this year's Tribute To The Troops.

- Jo-Jo kicks off the show with the singing of our National Anthem.

- The Family Promo: Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and The Usos are in the ring for a promo. Reigns gives thanks to the troops for their amazing service, when the League of Nations immediately interrupt. Sheamus appreciates America, but it's not the best country. King Barrett calls the British better. Alberto Del Rio asks where are the beautiful women and real futball? Sheamus says Ireland have the best food, women and gingers. Reigns calls the LON to the ring to show them what happens when you mock America. The LON head to the ring, when out go the lights, queing The Wyatt Family. The Dudley Boys, Ryback and Kane make their way out next, all hell breaks lose with a huge 16 man brawl, which sets up our 16 man tag team main event later tonight.

- "Bootcamp Match": Rusev (w/Lana) vs. Jack Swagger: Lana gets involved early, handing Rusev an ammo box, which Rusev hits Swagger with. The match closes out with Swagger hitting a series of clotheslines and a Swagger Bomb for a near fall. Swagger goes for the Patriot Lock submission, but Rusev escapes and plants a thrust kick, for a near fall. Rusev goes for another thrust kick, but Swagger catches the leg and locks in the Patriot Lock submission. Rusev escapes again, but gets sent into a metal case that Rusev put in between the ropes earlier in the match. Swagger again applies the Patriot Lock submission and forces Rusev to tap out.
Winner: Jack Swagger, by submission.

- Titus O'Neil and Batista show their respect by hanging out with the U.S. Navy Seals.

- Mark Henry vs. Bo Dallas: The match closes out with Dallas getting in some punches, some kicks to Henry's stomach and then runs for his life when he realizes nothing is working. Henry catches Dallas and ends him with the World's Strongest Slam for the pinfall.
Winner: Mark Henry, by pinfall.

- Rock group, Train, performed their new Christmas single "Merry Christmas Everybody".

- Ryback vs. Kevin Owens: The match closes out with Ryback hitting a series of shoulder tackles, landing a spine buster, hitting the Meat Hook and sets Owens up for Shell Shock. Owens escapes and lands on the ring apron. Ryback sends Owens off the apron and Owens decides to just walk out for the count out loss.
Winner: Ryback, by countout.
