It's Official: WWE RAW Won't Be Held In Denver; Finds Ironic Substitute

Even though it really should not have come down to this, it is now official and to no one's surprise WWE Raw has re-located for Monday May 25, the day that Game 4 between the Nuggets and the Lakers is supposed to take place. And the replacement venue: none other than the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California! From the Denver Post:

Fans with tickets to the Pepsi Center show can get a refund through Ticketmaster or exchange them for tickets to a new show set for Aug. 7 at the Denver Coliseum, said WWE chairman Vince McMahon.

More than 10,000 tickets were sold for the Pepsi Center event.

McMahon, still irked at Kroenke Sports Enterprises for double-booking the Pepsi Center, said he'll have some fun with the show at the Staples Center. He said there will be a confrontation between himself and an actor posing as Stan Kroenke, owner of the Nuggets and the Pepsi Center.

Kroenke Sports said today that an agreement had been reached Tuesday afternoon to move Raw to Sunday night at the Pepsi Center before McMahon had change of heart.

"Despite the propaganda campaign launched by WWE and chairman Vince McMahon, the (Kroenke Sports) team maintained a professional manner throughout this process," Kroenke Sports executive vice president Paul Andrews said in a statement. "We had hoped for, and worked hard toward an amicable resolution which we verbally had on Tuesday."
And I'm pretty sure that that change of heart included the WWE not returning to Denver anytime soon. Not settling for Sunday in Denver and moving WWE Monday Night RAW to the Staples Center in Los Angeles was indeed Vince's way of saying, "Fuck you and your ignorance, Stan Kroenke". And yes for the first time in a long time, I will be tivoing and watching WWE RAW Monday night and I will have the YouTube video up on this site of McMahon's mocking of Kroenke. That should be hilarious. And just because Stan Kroenke is a moron.....Go Lakers!!!
