from Jason Powell prowrestling.net:

WWE issued the following statement to TMZ.com regarding the altercation involving Chris Jericho and multiple fans following the WWE house show in Victoria, B.C. on Saturday. “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, Chris 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 Mr. Jericho. Arena and WWE security arrived to establish enough order to allow Mr. Jericho to re-enter his vehicle and depart. The local police arrived minutes later. Mr. Jericho was unharmed in the incident. The WWE is working with local authorities who are investigating the incident to identify the man and woman who fled the scene.” To read the story, visit TMZ.com.

Jason Powell’s POV: WWE will be happy to know that the fans were actually arrested and charged with assault. Their names are Ashley Levey and Kalen Johl, according to TimesColonist.com. WWE won’t be happy to know that the couple claims Jericho used a derogatory comment to Johl, who is South Asian.
