More News From WWE's TTTT Tapings: No Punk, Foley Claus, Pre-taped Video Messages, Other Notes

- Courtesy of Mike Fields, here are some more notes from last night's WWE Tribute to The Troops tapings in Norfolk, Virgina:

* The place wasn't 100% full but close to it. WWE used a bigger set this year.


* Michael Cole and JBL were the announcers.

* Taped messages that aired were from President Obama, Katie Couric, Sharon Stone, The Rock and others.

* There were some people grumbling about there being no CM Punk.

* Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell taped a segment with Michael Cole.

* Santa Claus was indeed played by Mick Foley. Here is a photo of he and Lilian Garcia together:

* There was a moment where Kane and Daniel Bryan came out and apparently due to the ramp size, Kane took a tumble but quickly saved himself and kept on. You can barely see the incident in the YouTube video below, courtesy of user TheBiz9999:
