Jericho Responds to Flag Incident, FCW Diva Debuts a New Look, WWE-Brazil News
- Fan reports from Sao Paulo indicate that there was about 5,000 to 6,000 fans present for WWE’s debut in Brazil last night. The venue holds up to 12,000 fans. Word is that WWE having to postpone the show made a lot of people from cities outside of Sao Paulo not able to come.
- Current FCW Divas Champion Raquel Diaz (Shaul Guerrero) debuted a new look at last night’s FCW TV tapings, one that may have been previously discussed for Layla on WWE’s main roster. There were rumors over a year ago of WWE doing a character similar to pop star Lady Gaga with Layla. Diaz debuted a new blonde look with new make-up at last night’s tapings and a group of friends in attendance noted that it reminded them of Gaga.
- Since WWE has suspended Chris Jericho for the flag incident in Brazil last night, Edu sent word that he has already been replaced by Daniel Bryan in WWE Title matches against CM Punk for WWE’s upcoming tour of Spain in June.
Regarding the incident, Jericho told WWE’s website:
“I made a bad judgment call in the course of entertaining [WWE] fans in Brazil. I apologized to the people in the crowd for showing disrespect. It was a bad move. I did it with [our] fans’ entertainment in mind and I’ll accept the consequences for that.”
