WWE legend Vince McMahon wanted Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke arrested

WWE legend Vince McMahon used to be so furious with Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke that he wanted the American tycoon arrested.

'Silent' Stan has plenty of enemies inside the Emirates Stadium, but he's never been particularly popular with wrestling god McMahon either.

But long before Kroenke incurred the ire of north London, he was involved in a bizarre public feud with McMahon that saw the WWE pioneer call for the Arsenal owner's arrest.

McMahon, who is chairman and CEO of WWE, even challenged his counterpart to a Steel Cage Match to settle their clash – although surprisingly enough, Kroenke never took up the invitation.

Their rivalry started in 2009 when Denver Nuggets owner Kroenke double-booked the team's Pepsi Center home with Monday Night RAW.

After the Nuggets reached the post-season playoffs and their venue became unavailable for WWE, a furious McMahon was forced to move the taping of RAW to the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

That prompted an angry reaction from McMahon, who in a TV interview at the time said: "Quite frankly, it's my view that Stan Kroenke should be arrested.

"[Kroenke] Should be arrested for impersonating a good businessman, because he's not a good businessman.

"A good businessman doesn't book a World Wrestling Federation [Entertainment] live televised event on Monday night, realising that his team in all likelihood would not make the play-offs.

"I think that the Denver Nuggets fans had a lot more faith in terms of the team making the play-offs than the owner Stan Kroenke.

"So he should be arrested for impersonating a good businessman.

"It's not just not good business when you don't support your own team. It's not good business when you throw the WWE out on its ear."

Not one to let sleeping dogs lie, McMahon put on five-on-five Tag Team event that saw one side, led by the legendary John Cena, wear Lakers shirts, and their opponents, captained by Randy Orton, don Nuggets jerseys.

No prizes for guessing which team won – but McMahon didn't stop there.

He also hired a Kroenke impersonator who insulted the WWE Universe before McMahon appeared and floored him, obviously.
