    Let put it clear: Brazilians crowd never blame Jericho or even said something bad about the incident. We from Brazil totally support Jericho and his heel character.

    • Vince

      I reckon its tottal bull your from brazil and you didnt find it bad and its just stupid

      • Danny Ortega

        I'm from Brazil too and it is a total bull for me to did not find it bad? I actually know it's for the sake of entertainment and not offended a bit on Jericho's act. I don't know what others might think and I love my country too but suspension is a little bit of exaggerating. We hope the other superstars might not offended by this incident because we still want WWE to perform here in Brazil in near future. Peace…

      Well Its Ovo Agingst the Law but i dont think the WWE Universe in brazil cared but ovo the police there care and at the end of the day the law is the law

      No offence dude but just because you didn’t get offended doesn’t mean other people didn’t.

  • ZackPack

    Jericho should just quit. What a joke.

    • XKonn247

      Zack, are you just offended for the sake of being offended. It’s hardly a bad thing!!! Compare that to a DUI. A crime worldwide but accepted in WWE with no repercussions?

    Shawn is completely right. I was born in 1987, so I grew up during the 90s where boundaries were seemingly constantly pushed or broken. Yet I still managed to realize that what I was watching was for mere ENTERTAINMENT purposes, though many of such were based upon real life scenarios. Liberalism and their ever-constant push for extreme adherence to political correctness is what’s killing the country. I’m an avid supporter of equal rights and the like, yet I’m a much bigger proponent of the freedom of speech. This is America & I should be entitled to my own opinions, regardless of what anyone else thinks of those viewpoints.

    So after reading a lot of information on the "Chris Jericho Brazilian Flag Incident", including comments from fellow wrestling fans, I've come to this conclusion: The incident was a shoot, not a scripted act. The fans loved it, because they understood it for what it was: a way for Jericho to get under their skin. It seems to me that the police may have overreacted. Whether they did so on their own or at the behest of a government official is unknown. I don't believe they would have actually arrested him over it; I think it was just their way of flexing their muscles a bit. The WWE had no choice but to suspend him; after all, he did commit a crime, assuming it is illegal to mishandle the Brazilian flag. It was probably the only way they could get the police to back down and not jail Jericho. As JBL said, "Times have changed, and the old ways are no longer acceptable. The talent has to change as well."

      I agres with you in almost all. But I disagree in two things. For me the police would have arrested him if he didn’t apologize. I know Brazilian police.
      About the suspension, I don’t think that it was necessary. In Brazil this incident was almost not noticed. The few news about it came only because of the repercussion of this incident around the world and because TMZ talked a lot about it. So, from brazilians point of view this was nothing to worry about.

    How was Michaels blamed anyway??

    • mr shwo

      im guessing you didnt do too well in english class

    • Will Mack

      Because he stuck the candian flag up his nose back when he and bret hart were feuding

  • mr shwo

    i gotta say, in my opinion ZDF hit the nail on the head

  • Ricky Valdez

    It’s all a show (wwe) why would anyone be offended, it’s all part of the show to get under the fans skin, I don’t think Jericho had to apologize, but I guess it doesn’t hurt to when he did apologies, but to get suspended, I don’t get that.

    There's a time and place to be politically correct. The time you spent watching wrestling isn't one of them.

      I knew I would it somewhere. Being politically correct. Oh no I’m sooo worried that I’m gonna insult somebody or hurt their feelings.
