A WWE pay-per-view is officially set for Tacoma, Washington this June.
The Tacoma Dome announced today that they'll be hosting WWE Stomping Grounds on June 23. This will be the first time WWE has used the Stomping Grounds PPV name.
Backlash was originally scheduled to take place at Pechanga Arena in San Diego, California on June 16, but that was canceled and replaced by Stomping Grounds. The June 16 event in San Diego is now a house show. Dave Meltzer reported in the most recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the switch of dates and locations for the PPV was pretty much a done deal.
WWE's next show in Saudi Arabia is now scheduled for June 7, which would have meant Backlash would have taken place nine days after that show.
Tickets for Stomping Grounds will go on sale to the general public this Friday (May 3) at 10 a.m. Pacific time. The pre-sale will start this Wednesday (May 1) at 10 a.m. Pacific. The Tacoma Dome is advertising Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton for the PPV, though whether that match will happen or not remains to be seen.
Everett, Washington is hosting the June 24 episode of Raw.
