WWE Monday Night RAW & Pepsi Center Madness

Who get to crack open that big can of Pepsi Center?!

Who get to crack open that big can of Pepsi Center!

The double bookings of the WWE and NBA for Monday May 25th in the Denver Colorado Pepsi Center have created a widespread buzz across the nation. Most people are sympathizing with the WWE, and they should.
 
If the WWE booked the venue first (as is the case) then it should be their venue. That company has to perform on Monday nights, which is why they booked the site so far in advance. Just because there are plenty more editions of Monday Night RAW to come as opposed to Los Angeles Lakers versus Denver Nuggets playoff games does not mean that the NBA takes precedence over the WWE.
 
A few weeks ago during the NHL playoffs, Pittsburgh’s Mellon arena had a scheduling conflict involving the hometown Penguins and Washington Capitals second round game two match up being double booked with a Yanni concert. Yanni booked it first, and the Penguins and Capitals had to play two nights in a row. Who do you blame? The NHL schedulers for overlooking the venue’s calendar. So who do you blame in the case discussed in this article? The NBA schedulers for overlooking the Pepsi Center’s calendar.
 
I think one thing that should work in the WWE’s favor is the recent recognition that they have received from organizations like ESPN, CNN, and even some of those “Good Morning” shows. Traditionally they have been viewed as a circus by many, but more and more the general public and organizations alike are starting to recognize them as a true professional organization.
 
Hopefully, the WWE will get their show, and most likely will I don’t know how people would feel about Tuesday Night RAW, or even Wednesday Night RAW since ECW airs on Tuesdays. Could be interesting, but could be wrong.
