It's probably not one of his regular pay per view stops on his TV—maybe except for Smackdown Divas—but that doesn't mean President Bush isn't a fan of World Wrestling Entertainment. In fact, he is—at least of WWE's annual tribute to the troops, which airs Saturday on NBC. WWE officials shipped us his newest video tribute to the troops and WWE, in which he lauds the "talented performers" in wrestling and heaps praise on WWE for boosting morale, making care packages for shipment overseas, and offering free tickets to the families of troops, especially during the Christmas holidays. We hear that Bush was moved to tape the address below by the trips WWE boss Vince McMahon took to Iraq and Afghanistan to entertain the troops for six straight years.
