A Nugget of Fear

I’m sure everyone has heard about this fight brewing between the Denver Nuggets and the WWE, but in case you haven’t I suggest reading this story and watching the accompanying clip which is media gold by Vince McMahon, who appears to finally be off the juice at the ripe old age of  65.

To sum things up (if you’re too lazy to click on the link), the owners of the Pepsi Center were too stupid to have faith in their team, the Denver Nuggets, so they scheduled a WWE Raw on Monday May 25. On top of that, they forgot to mention to the NBA that they had already scheduled WWE Raw for this coming Monday. The WWE and the Pepsi Center officials are working on a resolution since Vince already got rejected directly by the NBA.

The funny kicks in though when Jonathon Coachman, the former WWE announcer, starts to tremble when he starts to interview his old boss. By all accounts (since I haven’t seen him on ESPN) Coachman is doing a good job on ESPN unlike his horrendous, barely better than Michael Cole performances. Coachman tosses him a bunch of softball questions so that Vince can ham it up. You can tell Vince is aggravated but is making the best of his non-WWE TV time. The best part has to be him completely no selling Coachman after he says “Nice seeing you again sir.” Vince lets the dead air hang for a good five seconds before saying “Thanks”. You could almost hear Coach’s soul being crushed which has made my afternoon a hell of a lot funnier. – Kevin
