In another piece of news for Backlash 2019, it is being reportedly replaced by a new PPV event. And this WWE event will be called Stomping Ground.
Earlier in the month, the news for the cancelation of Backlash came out. A few days later, it was reported to be rescheduled from 16 June to 23 June. All these changes were reportedly due to rescheduling of WWE’s Saudi event which is currently rumored to be taking place on 7 June. Apparently, WWE wanted a bit more gap between their two PPV events.
The renaming of Backlash part is emerging from the Tacoma Dome Arena’s website. It had a listing for a WWE event on June 23 called “Stomping Grounds,” specifically being called a PPV. The listing has since been removed. But it mentioned that the tickets sale would have started this Friday. Below is the matter from the announcement.
