It’s already been proven time and time again that there are just some people who cannot handle wrestling. Folks, it’s a show. Yes, it’s dangerous and can lead to death and many horrible things but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s a show.
Chris Jericho, once a headlining act in multiple organizations, is now just one level above Santino in the comedy department at WWE. He’s basically turned into an over the top “bad guy” who in one week will insult TV legend Bob Barker and in another week gets made fun of by Ozzy Osbourne and family.
Unfortunately for Jericho, it appears that he’s become the poster boy for bad publicity. Earlier this year his car was mobbed by fans and he was attacked by a couple of idiots who didn’t comprehend that wrestling is scripted and not real life.
Last week, after too many drinks and/or while in character, Jericho made some insultin remarks aimed at Middle Easterners & gays. The host of the event, Mister Lobo, made the best of the publicity by sending TMZ a video of the event as well as a response.
If you think that’s the end of it, check out what happened to Jericho two days ago at a WWE event. Nothing worse than catching a flying glow stick with your face and having to take it. You can bet the coward who threw the glow stick would not have gotten away with it during Jericho’s ECW days.
