Is he also the guy that looks like he walked off of a gay pictures set?

that's the guy.  there's always been a rumor that he left a deuce in a diva's gym bag but she denies it.

BTW, Brock Lesner is married to Sable.

TNA had the chance to hire him, but they refused to give him the keys.  Too bad, the guy has a brilliant mind for the business.  90's ECW was some of the most compelling TV ever.

Chris Jericho kicked out of Brazil and indefinitely suspended by the WWE for stomping on a Brazilian flag and kicking it out of the ring before his match last night in Rio.  Desecrating a flag in Brazil is a misdemeanor.

Where did you see that he was kicked out of Brazil?  TMZ has him apologizing to the crowd after the police informed him that jail was the alternative, and then the event continued.

Either way, completely ridiculous.  Be thankful for what freedoms we still have in the States.

f4wonline reported he was flown out of the country, WWE is saying he's been suspended for 30 days.

Anyone remember when JBL did the goose step and hitler salute during a tour of Germany a few years ago?

That sucks for Jericho. I don't know what happened exactly but it sounds like he was just acting his role. That's garbage.

Randy Orton just doesn't get it though.

I was AMPED for Jericho's return and they totally freaked it up with that alcohol and CM Punk thing. 

What a letdown.

Jericho stomped on the Brazilian flag and kicked it.

Doing anything like that the the Nations flag is a misdemeanor in Brazil.

Say what you like about it being ridiculous, but Jericho broke the law there and defacing the Flag is considered a grave insult in that country. They understood that he was just doing his job as a heel, but he took it a little too far, and he likely did not know that it was an actual crime to do that. It happens. I am guessing that is why he was made to apologize, rather than straight up arrested.

Sure, we have a nominal freedom to do such things here,  but watch the crapstorm if some foreign born person came to America and stomped on an American flag in front of thousands of people.

Imagine an Arab-born entertainer stomping on an American flag, in America in the middle of one of his shows..

The reasoning for the suspension is understandable, its just unfortunate.

Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart used to routinely desecrate the Canadian and American flags respectively, and while it created a lot of heat, there was never a "crapstorm."

Anyone watching TNA these days?  Since they got rid of Vince Russo they've gotten rid of the crazy, frantic, stupid story lines, slowed the show down, focused more on wrestling, and have put together a pretty enjoyable show.  Certainly much better than Cena vs. Big Show these days.

Bobby Roode reminds me of a young Arn Anderson, and now they're beginning a slow build to the rematch with James Storm.  Austin Aries is simply fantastic.  And any show that has guys like Daniels, Styles, and Kurt Angle in featured roles will feature some pretty good matches.

Back in 1969-70 my father was stationed at an inter-service defence agency on Wheeler AFB in Hawaii and we resided at neighbouring Schofield Barracks...roughly once a month they'd have wrestling on at Conroy Arena at Schofield (televised wrestling from Honolulu International Centre and other venues was popular back then) and we'd see the likes of Pedro Morales (whose career went on well into the 80's), Handsome Johnny Barend, Ripper Collins, Billy Robinson and more...

...three undercards and a main event, all for $1...splendid entertainment.
