Both WWE RAW and Game 4 of the Western Conference finals of the NBA Playoffs were both booked for the same night. Vince McMahon wasn't backing down and neither were the Nuggets.
Denver's NBA team waited over a decade for them to make it this far and NBA fans weren't going to let WWE ruin their moment. McMahon and WWE had already booked the arena for this night and was offered venues to hold the RAW the likes of Los Angeles' Staples Center and the legendary Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Vince McMahon is a stubborn as they come and made one heck of a decision.
Both WWE RAW and the Nuggets game would be held in Pepsi Center at the same time!
There was no backing down.
McMahon couldn't be outdone by the NBA, so RAW was turned into a Supershow as every WWE superstar was ordered to be in attendance at Pepsi Center.
