This year’s RAW Christmas special for the troops will be feature talent from all three WWE brands instead of just talent from the brand hosting the show. The show will be taped sometime after 12/19 and it will air on Christmas day.

Backstage at last night’s ECW/SmackDown tapings, Rob Van Dam was told that he was expected to go on the company’s annual holiday visit to the United States military stationed in the Middle East. If you recall, Rob Van Dam was asked to go on the trip two years ago, but he refused, and subsequently got some heat for it. Anyways, RVD was very upset last night after being told that he was expected to go on the trip. It’s also being said that he should be really careful about upsetting Vince McMahon again, and thus it’s likely that he’ll go on the trip.
