Jericho, fans clash in B.C.
By TIM BAINES - Ottawa Sun

Christian is back -- and Chris Jericho is in the middle of a controversy.

Ah, just another week in WWE, with No Way Out tomorrow and Wrestlemania around the corner.

First, to Christian. It was wonderful to see him appear with a splash on ECW, immediately getting in the face of Jack Swagger. Losing the charismatic Christian is a big blow to TNA and a huge addition for WWE. Welcome back!

Now on to my other Canadian friend, Jericho, who got into a confrontation with some overzealous fans (or, idiots, as I prefer to call them) in Victoria, B.C. There is video of the incident on YouTube, and I'm certainly giving Jericho the benefit of the doubt.

Some reports say there was a punch, others a shove. But security sure didn't do Jericho any favours by standing back and watching. Heckling is one thing, but some fans just take it to ridiculous levels. It's only wrestling. Relax.
