- Fan reports from Sao Paulo indicate that there was about 5,000 to 6,000 fans present for WWE’s debut in Brazil last night. The venue holds up to 12,000 fans. Word is that WWE having to postpone the show made a lot of people from cities outside of Sao Paulo not able to come.

– Current FCW Divas Champion Raquel Diaz (Shaul Guerrero) debuted a new look at last night’s FCW TV tapings, one that may have been previously discussed for Layla on WWE’s main roster. There were rumors over a year ago of WWE doing a character similar to pop star Lady Gaga with Layla. Diaz debuted a new blonde look with new make-up at last night’s tapings and a group of friends in attendance noted that it reminded them of Gaga.

– Since WWE has suspended Chris Jericho for the flag incident in Brazil last night, Edu sent word that he has already been replaced by Daniel Bryan in WWE Title matches against CM Punk for WWE’s upcoming tour of Spain in June.

Regarding the incident, Jericho told WWE’s website:

“I made a bad judgment call in the course of entertaining [WWE] fans in Brazil. I apologized to the people in the crowd for showing disrespect. It was a bad move. I did it with [our] fans’ entertainment in mind and I’ll accept the consequences for that.”

    As much as this is disrespectful but this is the same WWE that had HBK pick his nose, hump and do other things to the Canadian flag. WTF it makes no sense to suspend him.

  • Chris

    I can’t understand how anyone can like the gay ass WWE product atm. This is so gay

  • moo

    Brazil are a bunch of marks.

  • Ryan

    wait he responded on wwe.com? you didnt see r-truth or evan bourne do that when they got caught out smoking that fake weed. its a work he’s touring soon and obviously needs time off as well as the fact the majority of it is in the uk

  • NO!NO!NO!

    bet it is a work…so he can go play rockstar with his shitty band now

    @TheSheepDog

    You clearly are showing intolerance to other cultures if that’s what you believe. How many times have you complained about foreigners in England not conforming to our rules and regulations?

    It’s easy to get heat by breaking the laws of a country. Any heel could just slap a child in the face on the way to the ring to achieve that. There’s a reason why the WWE don’t allow them to do this though! A good heal can get heat without breaking the law.

    And please don’t quote Deliah Smith ever again! I reckon most Norwich fans would be happy to pretend that said incident never happened!

    If they don’t want the flag to be messed with, it shouldn’t have been there. If this is real this is the stupidest thing to suspend someone over. He was doing his job.

  • Mabry

    I dont like it when flags are played with. To some, such as myself, the flag means something and is really important. I dont know why but i really feel respect for them, no matter what country its from. A flag is the last thing you mess with…

  • SYM

    When a Fan throws something in the Ring I’d expect for it to be kicked Out. Jeritroll did Good!

  • Mark0202

    It can’t be as bad as when hbk humped the Canadian flag and used it as a tissue.

  • OGitchida

    like I said…… Jericho can go on that Fozzy Tour now and not even be missed cuz he is “suspended”

  • Mark

    Well hes apologised for it now . so time to move on

  • TheSheepDog

    on a side not, what a heel Jericho is :) personally do not care how these brazillians felt, they should be fucking grateful wwe would use such a flag that does nothing for wwe.

    also if they are actual fans, they should know these cliche heel moves,its actually sign of respect to incorporate the country, city into the gimmick. i mean shit what next? these fans wanting money back because they didnt realise wrestling was a contact sport and found it brutal??

    just come back to England we wont moan and whine about mediocre shit, in the words of Delilah Smith “lets be having ya”

  • TheSheepDog

    ok, im going to ask, is this a work? i mean he was about to tour with fozzy (not sure of dates) but yea seems a schoolboy error to allow a flag to enter the ring, if the fans would react this way.

    So i think Chris was due time off to tour, came up with this ‘realistic’ idea and budda bing, budda boom, his gone.

  • MJ

    The flag should have never been in the ring in the first place.
