Chris Jericho reveals how Vince helped him avoid being arrested in Brazil six years ago

If you're a WWE superstar and you have a good relationship with Vince McMahon, he will do anything for you, especially if you get yourself in trouble.

Chris Jericho is a prime example of this as, a couple of years ago, he got himself in trouble during a WWE house show in Brazil and was a wanted man.

Back in May 2012, Jericho had a match at a WWE house show in the South American country against CM Punk. During the show, he kicked a Brazilian flag, causing local police to intervene and threaten him with arrest.

Y2J issued an apology to the audience, and was suspended later as a result, but the authorities in Brazil still wanted him.

During an interview with Orlando's 101.1 WJRR, Jericho revealed that despite what happened, Vince had his back and made sure nothing bad happened to him by getting him out of the country.

He said, via Wrestling Inc: “About six, seven years ago I kicked a flag in Brazil which is a felony, which no one told us beforehand. Like, it’s really bad. Long story short, the army wanted me arrested and taken to the jungle prison. He was really mad. Very furious.

"He actually suspended me for it. But in the meantime he got me out of there within hours. He’s like ‘you’re getting out of there now.’ So we went straight to the airport, got on the plane and took off and went to some other country.

"We weren’t supposed to leave until the next day and he said ‘you’re leaving now.'”

Jericho isn't expected to be back in the WWE anytime soon, as his Rock' N' Wrestling Rager At Sea is set to take place at the end of this month.

However, there's always a chance that WWE could use him at their Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia on November 2 due to the money they would be able to offer him for his participation in the event. 

Jericho hasn't been seen in the WWE since their Greatest Royal Rumble event earlier this year.
