So Chris Jericho hit a fan...

Jericho is one of my absolute favorite wrestler's in the world. He's a huge reason why I got into watching in the first place. While the video footage is distressing, and isn't how I would expect Jericho to react... I can to some end see why he was getting frustrated. Still no need to strike anyone male or female. The security crew should have been keeping the crowd off of him in the first place. But minor mob scenes like that are also part of the gig when you're in the wrestling business and are as big of a star as Y2J Chris Jericho.

I'm disheartened by his actions. But it could have been worse. Everybody makes mistakes, and I still proudly support Y2J Chris Jericho.

This was the official press release regarding the incident:


After leaving a live event in Victoria, British Columbia on Saturday evening, Chris Jericho's car was attacked by a mob when he was stopped at a stop sign. Unable to proceed, Jericho exited his car to ask the crowd to clear a path so he could continue through the intersection. A man and a woman physically and verbally assaulted Jericho.
Arena and WWE security arrived to establish enough order to allow Jericho to re-enter his vehicle and depart. The local police arrived minutes later.
Jericho was unharmed in the incident. The man and woman who assaulted Jericho were arrested.
