WWE boss Vince McMahon once BLASTED Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke over arena scheduling

ARSENAL fans are furious at owner Stan Kroenke after it emerged that the Gunners are part of plans to form a European Super League.

But the controversial American is no stranger to receiving heat for his dodgy dealings after famously incurring the wrath of Vince McMahon.

Denver Nuggets owner Kroenke double-booked his venue back in 2009 with RAW set to air at the Pepsi Center on May 25.

Yet the NBA side threw a wrench in WWE's plans by reaching the playoffs and were due to face the Los Angeles Lakers on the same night.

McMahon's infamous temper boiled over and he publicly claimed that Kroenke should be “arrested for impersonating a good businessman”.

The 75 year-old even challenged Arsenal's majority shareholder to a Steel Cage match to settle the ugly dispute.

McMahon was then forced to move the taping of Monday Night Raw to the home of Denver's opponents: the LA Lakers.

The WWE chairman also had a team captained by John Cena dress in Lakers gear and beat a Randy Orton-led gang wearing Nugget colours.

Kroenke's Denver outfit meanwhile were swept 4-0 and eliminated from the first round of the playoffs for the fifth consecutive year.

The 73-year-old Arsenal owner later appeared on RAW the following week to tell fans he doesn't care about WWE before McMahon arrived to shove him to the mat.


But while McMahon's anger had dissipated by the time the two shared TV time together, the same won't be said for Arsenal fans in 2021.

The Gunners could find themselves in the new Super League as early as next season as one of the competition's founding clubs.

Last night, the Prem's so-called 'Big Six' alongside Spanish trio Real and Atletico Madrid and Barcelona, as well as AC Milan, Inter and Juventus, officially broke cover to confirm their membership.
