WWE

Sticks It to Denver,

Moves Event to L.A.

5/20/2009 6:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Denver Nuggets won the battle -- but the WWE isn't finished with their war.

WWE event
After Vince McMahon raised hell when the team's owner screwed up and double booked the Pepsi Center for a WWE event on the same night as an NBA playoff game between the Nugs and the Lakers, the wrestlers have finally agreed to take their show on the road.

But in what seems to be a premeditated twist of fate, Vince is bringing the show to the Staples Center in L.A. -- home of the Lakers.

The Pepsi Center is now stuck having to refund thousands of tickets.

The nuggets are a joke all they get to do is be swept at home. I hope Vince and the WWE never go back to the cow-town of denver.

Democrats are evil    

What's McMahon all worked up about? he makes money wherever he goes. There are plenty of suckers who will pay to see the garbage that he calls wrestling. Lots of them in Los Angeles but I guess you have 4 times as many in Denver. That's for sure. They sure do love the tattooed freaks that play basketball. Must be the thin air up there. Truthfully, what kind of rocket scientist tattoos "Red" lips on the upper exposed portion of the back of his neck. I'll tell you who. A guy that would be lifting weights in a prison yard if he didn't have the talent to jump and shoot a basketball. You just know he is also a fan of the WWF. Like taking candy from a baby, right McMahon?

1.Vince should have held RAW at Mile High at Invesco since the pepsi center was booked.
2.he should never take his show back to the pepsi center again so he can show everyone he means business.

McMahon has generated so much publicity and now doing this. He is actually an amazing business mind.

Pro wrestling is FAKE, just like britney spears. People who pay (to), or even watch this nonsense are redneck, white trash LOSERS.

frig chris brown, frig him, loser    

man the owner of the nuggets has zero business skills, after the nuggets lose, his arena will have lost out on a profitable recurring show, and worst of all, they cost 10000 paying fans a show they wanted to see, thus burning their customers, and making the wwe less likely to come back in the near future. Also to note that it was booked in August and confirmed last month, idiocy

Kroenke has no business sense????? Pilgrim you are a freakin moron. The guy is a billionaire many times over due to his business sense. If he wanted, he could buy the WWE and close it. I guess your one of the faitful followers of that garbage of entertainment. I guess you also think the hills on MTV is real too..................moron.
