WWE Rumors

Chris Jericho and his text from Vince McMahon

Former WWE star and current podcaster and music player Chris Jericho made an appearance on The Opie & Anthony Show this week. Jericho discussed his upcoming projects and possible return to the WWE.

The talk turned to Jericho’s controversial moments in Brazil from a few years back which landed him, and the WWE, in hot water. Here’s Jericho’s side of the tale.

“He talked about kicking the Brazilian flag at a WWE live event in Brazil and said after the match, he went backstage and 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 f–k 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 bulls–t” and then hung up on him. Jericho found out how long he was suspended by reading WWE’s website.”

Former WWE star doubts Cesaro’s slam of Big Show

Former WWE star Chris Masters recently spoke to The Roman Show and discussed Cesaro body slamming The Big Show out of the ring to win the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 30.

Masters said this about Cesaro’s “feat of strength”: “I am pretty sure Big Show jumped for him,” Masters said. “Not to take away anything from Cesaro he looks like a talented worker who can probably bring his work down a little bit and his body up, but that’s just my opinion. If he slammed the Big Show than I can probably press the Big Show.”
