TOP OF WWE – Chris Jericho Suspended 30 Days
Ironically, WWE made its debut in Brazil this past weekend. This is ironic because WWE has listed Pat Patterson as having won a battle royal in Rio de Janeiro in 1980 to become the first Intercontinental champion. During WWE’s tour, Jericho was nearly arrested and thrown into a Brazilian prison for rolling up a Brazilian flag into a ball and kicking it to incite the crowd. Apparently, this act of disrespect is a jailable offense in the country, and Jericho was forced to immediately apologize in the ring. He was suspended for 30 days for his actions, a good PR move by WWE, even though we can all still remember Shawn Michaels sticking the Canadian flag up his nose in 1997.
TOP OF TNA – Brooke Hogan to Debut Thursday
Hulk Hogan’s famous daughter – and the star of VH1’s Brooke Knows Best – is set to make her debut in TNA this Thursday, May 31st, for the first new live edition of Impact. She will head up the Knockout’s division in a role similar to what Karen Jarrett and Traci Brooks used to do. There isn’t a whole lot to this story … VH1 never renewed Brooke’s TV deal from a few years ago and her singing career hasn’t been as successful as the Hogans had hoped. This is clearly an attempt at cashing in on Brooke’s name value while she still has it.
TOP OF INDIES – Pro Wrestling Syndicate Show Friday
Pro Wrestling Syndicate will host a mega-show this Friday at the Rahway Rec Center in Rahway, NJ, featuring The Great Muta in a tag match against Sami Callihan and Anthony Nese (the match TNA tried to keep Nese out of, leading to him quitting the company). It will be available on GoFight Live.
