Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!
A WWE event in Brazil came to a screeching halt Thursday evening ... when local law enforcement stopped a live match and threatened to arrest Chris Jericho for desecrating the Brazilian flag.
It all went down during a match between Jericho and C.M. Punk -- who was proudly waving the flag in the ring. Jericho took the flag away, crumpled it up and kicked the flag out of the ring ... and that's when police stepped in and put a stop to the event.
We're told Jericho was informed that desecrating the national flag is a crime in Brazil ... punishable by incarceration.
Yikes. WWE has apparently suspended Jericho indefinitely (whatever that means in WWE-speak). I guess Jericho's latest run ends sooner than anyone wanted...
Hating the anti-intellectual movement since before it was actually a movement.
