Major Update: Chris Jericho/ Brazil Update

Partial Source: The Wrestling Observer   Here is the latest news and notes on the Chris Jericho-WWE Brazil story:   – This is NOT a work by any means.   – Jericho was rushed to the airport late last night and they got him out of the country and into Ecuador ASAP. As of earlier this morning, he was in Ecuador. He’s likely on his way back home now.   – WWE management met with and issued an apology to the Brazilian government last night and this morning.   – In Brazil, desecrating the flag is grounds for incarceration. It’s against the law.

- Jericho was told by police and government officials that he had two choices – either apologize right then and there or be arrested and escorted out of the arena in handcuffs. They would have also shut the entire show down and sent fans home.   – Jericho has been pulled from the entire tour and has been suspended for 30 days. He will not be at the No Way Out PPV and the planned match with Randy Orton is off. They started the angle on RAW Monday and had planned to do a match between the two at the pay-per-view.   – This is something Jericho did completely on his own. WWE had absolutely no knowledge of this and it wasn’t part of the script. A fan actually brought the flag and gave it to CM Punk as he was entering the ring.
