12/12/2005 - BAGRAM AIR BASE, Afghanistan (AFPN) -- World Wrestling Entertainment superstars, and its flamboyant chairman Vince McMahon, wrapped up their third "Tribute to the Troops" tour with a live-to-tape show of WWE's Monday Night "RAW."

The wrestlers ended their tour Dec. 9. Before leaving Dec. 10, WWE Women's Champion Trish Stratus said her first visit to Afghanistan was a learning experience.

The tour, she said, "gave us an opportunity to meet and perform for our troops serving in Afghanistan" and more.

"We got a chance to learn about Afghanistan and the processes going on over here," she said. "I was especially interested to hear about schools being built and the growth in the women's movement throughout this nation."

On behalf of the WWE superstars, the wrestler expressed support for the troops serving their country as part of the ongoing global war on terrorism.

"Our men and women in uniform make constant sacrifices for our freedom and the freedom of others around the globe," she said. "This tour gave us a chance to say "thanks." It was an experience we'll never forget."
