World Wrestling Entertainment says it is moving its Monday night event to Los Angeles because of a conflict with the Pepsi Centre in Denver.

The Nuggets are scheduled to host the Lakers on Monday in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals, but WWE had previously booked the arena for an episode of Monday Night Raw.

WWE chairman Vince McMahon said Staples Centre called and offered use of its building and that his organization will return to Denver for an event at the Coliseum on Aug. 7.

McMahon criticized Kroenke Sports, which owns the Nuggets and Pepsi Centre, for not being more helpful when the conflict arose over the weekend.
