WWE Announces "Stomping Grounds" Pay-Per-View For June, Possibly Replacing Backlash

We don't have any puns off hand for Stomping Grounds, but WWE has named a pay-per-view event that.

The Tacoma Dome posted a video Monday, officially announcing that WWE will hold a new pay-per-view event in the venue on Sunday, June 23 titled "Stomping Grounds." Tickets for the show are not yet on sale.

You can see the video announcement below.

The video also mentions that Randy Orton vs. Roman Reigns will take place "for the first time ever in Tacoma." It's worth noting that these advertisements don't always hold up, and card is subject to change.

WWE's schedule has changed, as there have been major shifts in recent weeks. WWE's Saudi Arabia show was moved from early May -- before Ramadan -- to early June -- after Ramadan. As a result, a planned June 16 Backlash pay-per-view was pulled due to the proximity of the aforementioned Saudi Arabia show, with Stomping Grounds replacing it a week later. WWE has also discussed moving an NXT San Jose show that was listed on their schedule.

Below is the current schedule for WWE main roster pay-per-views.
