Jim Ross Comments on Jericho’s Flag Incident & Suspension

Nick Paglino

Jim RossWWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross appeared on Sports Talk 1400 in Norman, Oklahoma this morning, and had the following to say about Chris Jericho's flag incident in Brazil and subsequent WWE suspension:

"He was playing the part of a wrestling villain in an entertainment based entity.

It's not like he was at a sporting event like soccer and disrespected the flag, but rules are rules and they have strict rules regarding the flag in their company… He's playing a character, did an ad lib, and unfortunately he stepped over the line for the local culture, so he's been suspended indefinitely and hopefully it will work out."
