WWE vs NBA Media Coverage Continues
The tentative plan for next Monday's Raw taping is to do the show at the World Arena in Colorado Springs. This was one of the backup plans discussed yesterday, and WWE has tried booking more than 100 hotel rooms for Sunday night in Colorado Springs. After a scheduling debacle has left next week's WWE RAW without a host arena, WWE.com says that that New York's Madison Square Garden and Los Angeles's Staples Center have both offered to host the show. While WWE claims they still have not determined where the show will be held, the show will most likely be held in Colorado Springs, where the following night's SmackDown/ECW tapings will take place. This morning on ESPN, there was a segment called "Blog Buzz" where ESPN determined that the WWE-NBA story is capturing more sports fan interest than the actual NBA or NHL playoffs. To watch a video of the segment, visit ESPN.com. Yahoo! Sports is joining in on the "Pepsi Center fiasco" with a tongue-in-cheek article about what would happen if Monday Night Raw and Game 4 of the NBA Western Conference finals took place simultaneously in the same arena. The article includes mock play-by-play commentary of a WWE vs. Lakers vs. Nuggets showdown.
