- TMZ has picked up on the Chris Jericho incident in Brazil where he desecrated the Brazilian flag. As noted before, WWE has suspended Jericho indefinitely.
We noted earlier that during Jericho’s match with CM Punk, a referee came down and interrupted. Jericho was forced to make an apology to the fans before the match was re-started. The match was actually stopped by police. Jericho was informed that desecrating the national flag is a crime, punishable by incarceration.
Jericho was given an option – apologize to the fans or go to jail. Jericho apologized and the match was finished. Jericho was hurried to the back where police were waiting to speak to him. Cooler heads prevailed and Jericho was not arrested. WWE rushed him to the airport and out of the country, then announcing his suspension.
TMZ’s sources report that the flag incident was not planned or approved by WWE officials.
