Stan Kroenke, the owner of the Denver Nuggets and the Pepsi Center, may want to go ahead and buy a new date planner. Apparently, Kroenke has double booked the Pepsi Center this upcoming Monday night. Both WWE Raw and game 4 of the Western Conference Finals are set to go on the same night. The WWE booked the Pepsi Center last August 15, long before anyone believed the Nuggets had a chance to make the Western Conference Finals. Ever the shrinking violet, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon said “quite frankly, it’s my view that Stan Kroenke should be arrested, should be arrested for impersonating a good businessman, because he’s not a good businessman.” Oh, the delicious irony in that statement.
For those of you keeping score, McMahon has had Donald Trump shave his head on PPV, faced federal charges for steroids in the 1990’s (before it was cool), alluded to an ‘inappropriate’ relationship with his daughter in a storyline, and brought us a skit where his son-in-law, wrestler Triple H, pretended to have sex with a corpse. Folks, that is the guy who is calling someone else a bad business man. Vince, a bit of advice: how about checking into why an alarming number of your employees die way too young? (See Benoit, Chris; Guerrero, Eddie; and Hart, Owen.) Maybe not having your employees constantly dying would be a mark of a good businessman. McMahon went on to say that Kroenke should also be arrested for not having faith in his team and he challenged the Nuggets owner to a cage match.
The WWE is insisting that it has priority and is still selling tickets for Monday’s Raw in the Pepsi Center. While it is likely that a peaceful solution will be reached between the NBA and the WWE, here at SoD we like to imagine the road less traveled. Perhaps one of the WWE “Superstars” can make a rude comment to Kenyon Martin’s mother so he can move past the sissy feud with Mark Cuban. I humbly suggest Batista:
Perhaps, Mr. Martin would be a bit more selective with his words and stop the public jackassery of his feud with Cuban.
