Wrestlers won't be the only ones clashing on May 25 when RAW is scheduled to hold an event in the Pepsi Center.

The date falls on the same night and time as Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals between the Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Lakers.

Officials for the Pepsi Center are trying to find an alternate venue for WWE as the Nuggets will not be kicked out from their own home for WWE. A statement from the Pepsi Center to Denver's 7NEWS said that the NBA game is certainly on for Monday night.

WWE also released their own statement saying, "The WWE and Denver Nuggets are currently at an impasse in resolving a scheduling debacle by the team and the Pepsi Center."

The responsibility of booking events at the arena and making sure that there are no double bookings even though it involves taking chances ultimately lies in the hands of the Pepsi Center staff.

"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 25th date for a potential playoff game," WWE Chairman Vince McMahon said.
