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.
The crowd is sold out at the Pepsi Center as Marv Albert and Reggie Miller get ready to call the opening tip. Gasol and Nene get ready for the jump ball.
The ref throws the ball in the air and CM Punk music hits. Punk runs through the stands with the money in the bank briefcase and heads toward Edge, who is sitting in the front row.
"Punk's gonna cash it in!"
Jim Ross and Grisham are alongside Miller and Albert and all chaos breaks lose. Punk is looking at the NBA ref, who is confused. Punk is yelling he wants to cash it in, but the ref calls a technical on Punk. Umaga comes from the stands and goes for a Samoan spike, but it hits a ref and Umaga gets ejected.
The Nuggets fans start booing and Vickie Guerrero comes out.
Vickie gets everyone's attention and announces CM Punk vs Umaga later in the night.
Everything was fine until Shad and JTG (Cryme Tyme) stood up and started drawing attention in the stands. Shad was yelling and an NBA ref was yelling for a technical. JTG snuck around the the crowd and pick pocketed Lala, Carmelo's Anthony's girlfriend. She caught him in the act and yelled. Carmelo shifted his head toward the stands and Kenyon Martin's mother screamed
"Capture these thugs!"
"Who you calling thugs, grandma? Brooklyn is in the house!"
Kenyon left the court with Melo and into the stands where the four men faced off. Kenyon swung and Shad gave him a big boot. Kenyon fell over some fans. JTG was thrown down an aisle and got stomped out by Anthony.
Anthony Carter was being interviewed for his first half performance and what he thought about the WWE sharing Pepsi Center with them. Before Carter could speak, M.V.P. cut him off.
"Damn, I'm Ballin' in this place!"
"Yo reporter, bring that spotlight to M.V.P., ain't no one care for Chancey Billups' father!"
"Charles Barkley need to stop playing and put me on his fave five. Nuggets getting their butts handed to them on a silver platter, I'm talking about getting their salads tossed. Get this ol' fool up outta here and I'll show Pepsi Center how to shoot the ball because I'm Ballin!"
Anthony Carter said M.V.P.'s chains are fake, he can't wrestle, he needs to hit the gym, he was in jail for a couple of years, and he was on the view making him a *****.
M.V.P. slapped Carter on his head and Carter pushed back. The two started fighting and were separated.
"All of you are hypocrites. I've never seen a crowd like this before, I'm proud to be Canadian. You call yourselves Nuggets' fans? Where were you when they were losing night after night? "
"Where were you when they were constantly being disposed of in the first round of the playoffs? All you are irrelevant tonight.
"DENVER IS JERICHO!"
"It doesn't matter what you think, I see you your face paint and you think your proud fans? Your owner didn't even have enough faith in the team to book this night...my night".
"Now you all show up like you were loyal all along, the Nugget fans are more hypocritical than WWE fans themselves. Yes, get mad and sit there with your pot belly drinking miller light, you are all a disgrace to America."
"You have fossils like George Karl, Barkley, Van Gundy, and these 90-year-old refs deciding these games. You couldn't even call the Antoine Wright/Carmelo Anthony foul."
"The Denver Nuggets are the parasites of the NBA, it's all a conspiracy. You screwed Allen Iverson, you screwed the Dallas Mavericks and you tried to screw the WWE, but don't worry it's spring cleaning, the Lakers are going to sweep this place up".
"I'm calling out anyone in the back, doesn't matter if they're a 'balla' or a wrestler, come out. I'll show Denver how to put on a show. Enjoy this moment because you'll have to wait another 15 years to reach here again the way Karl coaches".
Nene comes off the bench and punches Jericho. He starts pounding away and the two are separated.
"Get him off me!"
Jericho is taken to the back as his lip swells.
During half time CM Punk made his way through the NBA and WWE fans and onto the court/ring. Punk jokingly threw his money in the bank briefcase through the one of the basketball hoops and get booed by the NBA fans.
Umaga was ejected from the building earlier for samoan spiking the cotton candy man. Without a person to wrestle Punk grabbed the mic and talked about how vital it was not to smoke or drink then he looked at Chris "Birdman" Anderson.
"What's wrong with you? Weren't you suspended a year or two from the leauge for drinking and doing drugs?"
"The WWE doesn't have junkies, druggies, or failures like you."
Birdman got on the mic.
"What about Jeff Hardy? He's a junkie and your friends with him, in fact you too tagged I believe".
Birdman came off the bench after George Karl cleared him and attacked CM Punk. Birdman was attacking Punk with his spiky hair and the two got into a scuffle.
The Nugget dancers come out to dance during halftime and they're putting on a show. Vince sees that even WWE fans are enjoying the dancers, so he tells the WWE divas to get out their and shake their stuff.
Layla El and Eve Torres heats up the competition between the Nugget dancers and the WWE Divas. It becomes a dance off and the Bella Twins start to kick up a notch with their style.
The dancers start to get angry and one of them pushes Kelly Kelly into the stands. Maryse starts talking French and gets straight up slapped by one of the dancers. Mickie James and Beth Phoenix take action as MIckie DDT's one the dancers on the floor and the entire arena starts chanting
HLA! HLA! HLA!
After Mickie kisses the downed dancer. Beth takes out two at once and the officials scramble to stop the scuffle as the drooling men in the crowd urge to let them fight.
Vince rants about how he sold out the show until George Karl's cuts him off at ESPN's studio.
"Barkley, never mind this idiot, the Nuggets sold this place out, it was 15 years in the making".
"That's funny because the Nuggets have sucked for over a decade. I'm no NBA official, but I'm a business man. With that said..
"Allen Iverson was NOT the answer, there is only one question.
"Who cares about the Denver Nuggets?! I got money down on Kobe, he's gonna wipe the floor with your faithless team that couldn't even lock up this day."
"What happened? Didn't think you'd --
"Owen Hart was a Nugget!
"You idiot cash cow, failed actor, box head, children catering wrestler, John Cena was at an NBA game."
"What kind of an idiot wears the opposing team's jersey at Game 7 at home. Especially if he's from the hometown.
"Funny how CM Chump brought up "straighedge", correct me if I'm wrong, but that mean no drinking or using drugs right?"
"Correct Karl", Vince mumbled.
"Go test Batista then...or how about your son Triple-
"WWE RAW rating has surpassed the NBA Playoff ratings and will easily surpass Nuggets ratings."
"Why is that? Because you said so? Where the stats? Go in limo and blow yourself up again."
"I will, it's gonna bring in the money! But, I'll do so after I see your defeat speech when you get swept.
McMahon and Karl get up close and personal and Karl spills Barkley's coffee on McMahon's pants and shoves him to the ground screamin he's not Donald Trump.
It's the fourth quarter and the score is 93-92, Laker's lead the crowd is behind the Nuggets as Pepsi Center erupts. George Karl has had his last time out and it's Nugget ball.
Nene inbounds the ball and passes it to Carmelo Anthony. The last 10 seconds are winding down as Melo dribbles the ball. Melo dribbles toward the basket as Ted DiBiase Jr. and Cody Rhodes get up from their seats and the refs look at them.
Randy Orton spills some clear liquid on the court and Melo slips on it, puts up an off balance shot, and misses! Lakers win!
The Nugget fans scream to show the replay of Orton spilling the liquid, but the footage seems to be gone via Cryme Tyme. The refs cannot prove anything, so the Lakers get the win.
"I Randy Orton am the most dominant superstar in WWE history! It doesn't matter who gets in my way, I'll destroy them just like the McMahons and Triple H--
Batista runs out and starts fighting Legacy.
Orton, Rhodes and DiBiase jump Batista and beat him down. Orton sets up for a punt, but Ric Flair comes running out and starts battling with Legacy. Rhodes and DiBiase get him on the floor and Orton RKO's him after he slowly gets up. He looks to Batista again and sets up a punt.
The entire Denver Nuggets' locker room comes out. The team comes, the managers come, even fans come and Orton high tails it out of the arena as Rhodes and DiBiase are beaten within an inch of their lives (as always).
Batista gets up and Batista bombs Rhodes and Flair lets out a huge whooooo! The Nuggets and the fans jump Batista and Flair after they dispose of Rhodes and DiBiase.
Flair gets hit with a bottle and Batista gets pounded out by Kenyon Martin and the rest of the Denver squad. Orton looks from afar with a terrified yet vengeful face.
