    Pepsi Center double booked; WWE vs. NBA

    NBA, WWE grapple over Denver booking conflict - ESPN

    This story is hilarious to me.

    The Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado booked a WWE event next Monday that has been sold out for ages with the thinking that the Nuggets, who haven't made it past the first round of the playoffs in five years, would be knocked out of the playoffs already.

    Instead, the Nuggets have emerged as the best team in the league.

    Both events are sold out. Both events are in the same venue at the same exact time.

    Odds are, the NBA will be forced to pay Vince McMahon a ton of dough to have him switch venues but he'll be all over the news fighting his cause until the money situation is resolved.

    Vince is totally in the right here - stupid Nuggets owner.

    READ THE ARTICLE:



    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."

    Without 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."

    WWE spokesman Robert Zimmerman said the organization secured the Pepsi Center last Aug. 15 and has already sold more than 10,000 tickets for the event. He says the organization expects a sellout, with tickets ranging from $20 to $70.

    McMahon blamed Kroenke for not believing his team was good enough to still be playing in mid-May.

    "The fans in Denver had a lot more faith in making the playoffs than the owner," he said in a phone interview from Louisville, where Raw was taking place later Monday night.

    Denver is usually done with basketball by now. The Nuggets had lost in the first round five straight years, but as the No. 2 seed in the West are in the conference finals for the first time since 1985.

    The league, which handles scheduling during the playoffs, is leaving it up to the team and the WWE to figure things out.

    "The Nuggets and the WWE understand that the date of Game 4 of the Western Conference finals cannot be changed," NBA senior vice president Mike Bass said. "We are confident that the Pepsi Center and the WWE will resolve their scheduling conflict."

    Zimmerman said the Pepsi Center confirmed in March with the WWE that the organization wanted to keep the May 25 date, and sent a contract on April 15 -- the final night of the regular season -- which WWE signed and returned. Tickets went on sale April 11.

    The conflict didn't arise until Sunday, when the Lakers beat the Houston Rockets in Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals. Had the Rockets won, Denver would have had home-court advantage in the next round, hosting Games 1 and 2 and putting the May 25 game in Houston.

    As of Monday afternoon, the schedule on the Pepsi Center's Web site listed WWE for 6:30 p.m. local time and Western Conference finals Game 4 at 7 p.m. Tickets for the wrestling event could still be purchased online.

    McMahon said he couldn't guess how much he would make from the show, but that canceling wasn't easy because of how much is involved in moving his equipment, plus filling its obligated time slot on USA Network. Litigation is likely -- but he plans to be putting on a card.

    "When you do have a date, you plan everything around it," he said, adding, "we may be holding an event in a parking lot somewhere."

    Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

    WWE Responds To Pepsi Center Being Double Booked; Vince McMahon Comments
    by Ryan Gray

    WWE has posted an acknowledgment on their official website concerning next week’s edition of Raw, where they have been double booked with the Denver Nuggets. Vince McMahon is quoted in the article as saying, “Even though the Denver Nuggets had a strong team this year and were projected to make the playoffs, obviously Nuggets and Pepsi Center owner Stan Kroenke did not have enough faith in his own team to hold the May 25 date for a potential playoff game.” Below is the full statement from WWE:

    World Wrestling Entertainment’s live, internationally televised broadcast, WWE Monday Night Raw(USA Network, 9:00 PM ET) to take place at the Pepsi Center in Denver next Monday, May 25 is in jeopardy of being cancelled by the Denver Nuggets. WWE and the Denver Nuggets are currently at an impasse in resolving a scheduling debacle by the team and the Pepsi Center. A sell-out crowd is expected to attend the WWE show at the same time the Denver Nuggets are slated to square off against the Los Angeles Lakers for Game 4 of the NBA Western Conference Finals. WWE has held the May 25 date with the Pepsi Center since Aug. 15, 2008.

    “Even though the Denver Nuggets had a strong team this year and were projected to make the playoffs, obviously Nuggets and Pepsi Center owner Stan Kroenke did not have enough faith in his own team to hold the May 25 date for a potential playoff game,” said WWE Chairman Vince McMahon.

    WWE went PG on their long time followers so I don't care anymore.

    As long as this horny devil *points to self* watches the eye candy known as Randy Orton.
    There are people who love me and there are people who hate me. I will take care of those people who love me and the rest can burn in hell.

    They should have a Royal Rumble in the Parking lot, Pay Per View. Nuggets vs. the Wraslers, no holds barred all out death match. Of course some "Baller" will show up with a gat and ruin the whole thing.....
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012
