WWE vs. NBA Round 1

May 19, 2009 at 10:39 am by Terez in Denver Nuggets, WWE


Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers are scheduled to be at the Pepsi Center in Denver next Monday night. Problem is, so are John Cena and a bunch of wrestlers — and they called it first.World Wrestling Entertainment said it is booked at the arena for an episode of Monday Night Raw, the same night the Nuggets are slated to host the Lakers in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals. WWE chairman Vince McMahon told The Associated Press he doesn’t believe there was “any malice, just ineptness,” on the part of Kroenke Sports, which owns the team and the building, but can’t tolerate the company “just simply throwing us out on our ear.” Wit hout a quick resolution, McMahon plans to send his trucks to Denver. “That’s what we intend to do,” he said. “We’re going to show up.”

Pepsi Center officials told the ABC television affiliate in Denver that the Nuggets game will be played as scheduled and that they are working with the WWE to reschedule or move its event. Paul Andrews, executive vice president of Kroenke Sports Enterprises, issued a statement Monday night concerning the scheduling conflict, saying: “We are working with the WWE to resolve the situation amicably.”

“The fans in Denver had a lot more faith in making the playoffs than the owner”

Vince McMahon is a psycho.. I wouldn’t want to piss him off. -TO
