The Denver Nuggets have more than just the Los Angeles Lakers to worry about in the Western Conference Finals. They also gotta deal with Vince McMahon and his band of yahoos.
Thanks to a blunder in the Nuggets’ front-office, Game 4 of the WCF is in direct conflict with a pre-scheduled WWE event (Monday Night Raw) set to take place in the Pepsi Center the same night.
The NBA says the date for Game 4 cannot be changed, and the wrestlers are not pleased. From Inside WWE:
“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.
ESPN.com has a video interview with McMahon, during which he lays the smackdown (sorry, it can’t be helped) on Denver Nuggets’ owner, Stan Kroenke:
Clearly, Vince McMahon is an evil genius. The steel cage match idea to resolve the issue is flawless.
