WWE: Chris Jericho reveals how Vince McMahon disrespected him

Published 1 Comments

CM Punk has dominated the headlines in the wrestling world ever since he appeared on a podcast with good friend and fellow pro wrestler Colt Cabana.

Punk went in on the WWE and detailed exactly why he left the company in the two hour long interview. Punk revealed that one of the actions that really tipped him over the edge and made him never want to return was when the WWE served him his papers of his firing on the day of his wedding.

And now a fellow WWE superstar has come out and revealed how Vince McMahon disrespected him.


Speaking on his own podcast today, Chris Jericho has detailed how McMahon suspended him from the WWE without even telling him.

"In retrospect, when Punk mentioned on the podcast that Vince fired him on his wedding day and then said 'oh i didn't know, it was a miscommunication.' It's the same thing he told me when it appeared on the internet that I had been suspended for 30 days for kicking the flag in Brazil," Jericho said on today's Talk Is Jericho.

"I had people texting me 'how's it feel being suspended for 30 days' and i didn't even know about it. I had to read about it online, read about my fate, online."

Brazil Ban

If you don't know what Jericho is referencing here, in May of 2012 with the WWE in Brazil, Jericho - playing a heel character - picked up a Brazil flag, showed it to the audience, threw it down on the ground and kicked it out of the ring.

The local police, present at the event, stopped the match and demanded that Jericho give an apology or face incarceration. He did so, and the match resumed. Afterwards, it was announced on WWE.com that WWE suspended Jericho indefinitely for the incident, which later became 30 days.
