MSG, STAPLES Center to Raw's rescue?
STAMFORD, Conn. — The Denver debacle that has jeopardized this coming Monday's edition of Raw in Denver's Pepsi Center has yielded an outpouring by some of the biggest arenas in the world who have opportunistically offered to host Monday Night Raw live on Memorial Day.
While working to resolve the scheduling conflict between Raw and the Denver Nuggets' NBA Western Conference Finals game against the Los Angeles Lakers, WWE officials have received proposals from numerous venues including Madison Square Garden and, ironically, the STAPLES Center -- the home of the Nuggets' Monday night opponents, the Lakers. In addition to numerous other venues, these major-capacity metropolitan arenas proposed to have WWE's flagship program emanate from their locations instead of Denver's double-booked Pepsi Center this coming Monday.
As reported by WWE.com and countless media outlets, officials from both WWE and the Denver Nuggets are still attempting to determine a resolution for the scheduling calamity in Colorado's capital.
