“Spring being a tough act to follow, God created June.” – Al Bernstein, writer/sportscaster

Ahhh, June. The sixth month of the year always has so much to look forward to, from the start of summer (and for many students, the end of the school year) to cookout and pool party conditions that verge on pristine. Just as important, the WWE Universe has come to rely on June as a major month for pay-per-view action over the past 20 years.

After the “Big Four” events — WrestleMania, SummerSlam, Royal Rumble and Survivor Series — dominated WWE’s pay-per-view calendar for years, a new member was welcomed to the pay-per-view ranks with the debut of King of the Ring in June 1993. Since then, WWE has presented at least one pay-per-view per year in the month of June. There have been one-off events never to be seen or heard from again, as well as rare events produced under the initials of rejuvenated brands.

Through it all, however, there’s been one constant: When it comes to June, the temperature isn’t the only thing that’s hot. Don’t believe us? Dig into this pay-per-view retrospective and reacquaint yourself with some of the hottest summertime action to have taken place through the years.
