WWE has paid tribute to the nation’s veterans by flying one of the biggest Stars and Stripes flags in the entire United States.
WWE announced the news with a press release on the company’s website, noting the massive flag will fly over the company’s headquarters:
STAMFORD, Conn., November 10, 2023 – WWE® today announced that, in honor of Veterans Day and on behalf of all Americans, the company will raise one of the largest American flags in the country atop the new WWE headquarters in Stamford, Conn.
The flag, which measures a massive 3,040 square feet at 76 feet wide and 40 feet tall, will fly as a beacon of patriotism – inspired by and in honor of all of our veterans, especially those troops killed in action.
WWE has a multi-decade commitment to the U.S. Armed Forces, which includes visiting nearly 400 military installations throughout the world, entertaining U.S. soldiers through Tribute to the Troops annual holiday specials, offering all U.S. military personnel free tickets to WWE live events, and partnering with military organizations, such as Hire Heroes USA and the National Medal of Honor Museum Foundation to make an impact in the community.
Then. Now. Forever. Together.

WWE Has A Long History With US Military
WWE has long supported the US military with Vince McMahon launching the Tribute To The Troops show in 2003 at Camp Victory in Baghdad, Iraq. One ex-WWE star recently revealed how they were pushed to tears of rage after refusing to go to that supposedly voluntary show.
