Chris Jericho appeared on Opie & Anthony earlier today, one of the topics he discussed was kicking the Brazilian flag at a WWE live event in Brazil in 2012 which lead to a 30 day suspension that forced WWE to issue an apology to the citizens and the government of Brazil for the incident.
Jericho said once he went backstage following the incident there were soldiers with guns. A Colonel had also gotten upset and flipped over a table due to the whole thing. Vince McMahon sent Jericho a text saying, "You will not be coming back to Brazil. what the fuck is wrong with you, why would you do something like that? I'm so angry at you." Jericho, confused because he was just playing a heel, called Vince and Vince suspended him, told him to get on the next plane to fly home, called Jericho's actions "bush-league bullshit" and then hung up on him. Jericho found out how long he was suspended by reading WWE's website.
