Mr. McMahon Does Not Approve Of Game 4 Of The Lakers-Nuggets Western Conference Finals In Denver; Takes Shots At Owners And Moves It To LA

Next Monday (5/25) is Memorial Day here in the USA, and it is also the same day as Game Four of the NBA Western Conference Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers an the Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center in Denver. That same night, the weekly tesosterone fueled predetermined fake fighting soap opera called WWE RAW is scheduled to be at the same arena. Both events are scheduled to start at 9 PM EDT.

A little background on this if you will. The Pepsi Center is owned by Altitude Sports and Entertainment, who owns the Nuggets, the Colorado Avalanche of the NHL, MLS' Colorado Rapids, the Altitude sports channel and owner Stan Kronke also owns parts of the NFL's St. Louis Rams, the dormant for a year Arena Football Colorado Crush (with Pat Bolden an John Elway) and English Premier League soccer team Arsenal FC.

Meanwhile, World Wrestling Entertainment is controlled by Vincent Kennedy McMahon, booked "the Can" in advance even as far as signing the contract April 15th for the May 25 date. Like his TV personna, he has a "my way or the highway" personna, and took a shot at Kronke stating that "he didn't have faith that the Nuggets would have a playoff date" in a press release. Even worse, Vinnie Mac "presented" a Lakers Kobe Bryant jersey to Kronke and challened him to a steel cage match.

Here's an update on the story (as of 5/20): The Pepsi Center now says that the WWE is "postponed indefinately" for May 25, and the NBA Nuggets won out. Wait, this gets even funnier. If they had to try to move the show to the next night (May 26), they would have bumped Andre Rieu and the Johann Strauss Orchestra. Yes, he of the PBS Begathon secials, Andre Freakin' Rieu! Now how WTF hilarious is that? They also bailed out of a date the next night up in Colorado Springs and guess what? Both shows wil be in Los Angeles at the Staples Center next week. See "irony" in Websters' and look it up...


  1. ??????

    I have visited those sites and numerous other wrestling and sports sites and I have yet to see an article that says the WWE has folded. This conflict is still going on. And besides, you know Vince McMahon as well as I do, he's going to drag this out as long as possible.

  2. Pepsi Center now says that the NBA Playoffs will be held there Monday (5/25) and WWE has been "postponed". Even worse, if they had tried to swap out the RAW and SmackDown sites (Colorado Springs is the most likely place for it now), they would have had to deal with Andre "Mr. PBS Pledge Break/Begathon" Rieu on the 26th.
