Vince McMahon, chairman of the WWE, promised that Monday Night Raw was going to be expecting and fun this past week, and he was true to his word. In fact Mr. McMahon opened the show explaining why they were in L.A. instead of in Denver.
Seems that E. Stan Kroenke, Owner of the Denver Nuggets, double booked the WWE and the Nuggets. Very poor organizing on the part of Kroenke. He leaves little to be desired as far as having a good head for business.
The WWE thought they would have to cancel their show(very much unheard of). Word got out that the WWE had no place to air their show and the offers came pouring in. Vince decided to go with the Staples Center in L.A.
They got word out and the tickets went on sale and it wasn't before long, they were all sold out. The Lakers (the Denver Nuggets' rivals) were more than happy to have the WWE in their arena. In fact some of the players and coaches were in attendance.
Mr. McMahon confronted an imitation of Kroenke in the ring and set him straight. Vince told him that he Enos couldn't play with the WWE Universe. Guess Enos doesn't like wrestling or its fans.
Kroenke didn't have the brains to call Vince to tell him his organization had messed up and needed Vince to help him out with the situation. Enos may be a good coach but his brains go are out to lunch when it comes to business.
Vince had one hell of a show in spite of everything that happened. There was a 10-man tag team match featuring John Cena, Batista, MVP, Jerry " The King" Lawler and making the 5th partner—Mr. Kennedy. They were rockin and a ballin!
Their opponents were Big Show, Cody Rhodes, Ted Dibiase Jr. The Miz and Randy Orton.
John Cena's team wore L.A Lakers shirts and Randy Orton's team wore Denver Nuggets gear. That didn't help; Randy's team went down. Don't get me wrong, Orton's and Cena"s team wrestled a very close match. At times it looked like a battlefield. It could've gone either way.
It was a very classy and exciting show. Vince out did himself. The fans were happy and the Lakers were too.
