WWE Has A New Name For A PPV Taking Place In June

Roman Reigns

Wrestling Observer Newsletter editor Dave Meltzer reported last week that WWE’s annual Backlash pay-per-view event was set to be canceled after organization officials rescheduled their next show in Saudi Arabia show for Friday, June 7. WWE originally scheduled Backlash for Sunday, June 16 in San Diego, California, but with the change, WWE didn’t want to hold another pay-per-view event just nine days later.

Meltzer also reported that WWE planned to move Backlash back a week and hold it at the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Washington. The Tacoma Dome announced on Facebook that a WWE pay-per-view will take place at the venue on June 23. However, it’s not being called Backlash.

It’s being called WWE Stomping Grounds.

The Tacoma Dome has released information for the event and it is being referred as WWE Stomping Grounds. One match has been announced as Roman Reigns will face Randy Orton. Universal Champion Seth Rollins and Kofi Kingston are also advertised to appear.

Here is WWE’s commercial for the event from the Tacoma Dome.
