The Stomping Ground: Independence Day Spectacular!

You know, I really should have taken this week off. I’ve been doing this column for over two years without a single break, which is a personal best for yours truly. However, since I’m a stickler for tradition, here’s this week’s offering of sweet, sweet goodness….in Youtube form! I’ve compiled a list of my favorite matches from every WWE PPV presented in July from the year I officially started watching wrestling on the regular until now. Feel free to watch as many clips as you’d like before the WWE inevitably pulls them down for copyright infringement! NOTE: The following match-ups are based mostly on memory and in comparison to the rest of the card for their respective PPVs. I’m sure there will be some duds on this list.
