Detailed Fan Report From Chris Jericho’s Brazilian Flag Incident



Thanks to PWMania.com reader Mistadre for sending this in:

Hey guys, I was sitting at ringside at the WWE Live Event here in Sao Paulo and I wanted to share a few highlights with you:

CM Punk b. Chris Jericho on a No-DQ match fo the WWE Championship This is it! Jericho came out first and shunned the huge pop from the crowd. Punk came out on the biggest pop of the night! Crowd went wild while Punk posed with the fans. When Justin was doing the intros, someone threw a Brazilian flag on the ring, which caught Punks attention – he did some posing and left it on the ropes. Jericho promptly caught the flag showed to everybody, then crumpled it and then kicked it, drawing some cheap heat. the match started with a lot of funny/entertaining spots (not much mat wrestling as some more hardcore fans were expecting). Some ten minutes into the match, we started to notice some fuzz at the entrance, when suddenly some producers and Johnny (breaking keyfabe) came rushing in to speak with the ref. At the ramp entrance, six cops were placed like they were waiting to take Jericho into custody. Jericho then took the mic and apologized for doing that to the flag. Officers stayed put for some more minutes and then walked off as some fans started booing. The crowd kinda died out after this, but managed to see some nice spots before Punk hit the GTS for the win. Jericho went to the back without talking to the fans, clearly worried. Punk then celebrated with the fans (even climbing to some of the upper levels) to wrap up the show.

Everybody went home extremely satisfied with the show, we even saw some police cars blazing through the parking lot to the outside, which created some buzz, with everybody questioning if Jericho was really arrested. Luckily, nothing of the sort happened to the superstar.
