Chris Jericho spoke about his incident were he was suspended over kicking a flag in Brazil during today’s appearance on the Opie and Anthony show.
Jericho said that halfway through his match against CM Punk another referee was called in to tell him that he has to apologize for kicking the flag because the Brazilian authorities were going to take him to jail. Jericho stated that after match had finished, he walked to the back and he gets ostracized and he sees soldiers with their guns. Jericho noted that there was a Colonel backstage that had flipped out earlier and flipped over a coffee table over the incident.
Jericho also revealed that Vince McMahon had sent him a text message saying, “You will not be coming back to Brazil. what the f— is wrong with you, why would you do something like that? I’m so angry at you.” Jericho was confused because what he did is just typical heel stuff. Jericho called Vince and Vince said, “I don’t wanna talk to you right now…i’m so furious at you. You’re suspended. Get on the next plane and fly home. This is bushleague bullsh**.”
Vince then hung up on him. Jericho said that there was a police escort taking him out of the country. Jericho said he found about about how long he was suspended by reading it on the WWE website.
