The moral of the story: Each country has their own laws and you better be careful about what you do as both a performer and tourist. What some countries take for granted may very well be punishable offenses in other countries. Even if it was in character, WWE should have informed their Superstars about this. Sure, this isn’t the first time a wrestler (in character) desecrated a foreign flag to get heat, just got to be careful exactly what kind of villainous acts you commit to build up your “evil” persona, lest you want to get yourself in real life trouble.
the worst part for wrestling fans is that Chris Jericho is one of WWE’s biggest stars right now and this certainly is a major blow that could hurt business until everything is settled.
