Chris Jericho Pummels Man for Barging Into Fozzy Tour Bus + Injuring Drum Tech
What kind of dummy sneaks onto a pro wrestler’s tour bus and expects not to get pummeled? Well, that’s exactly what happened after a Fozzy show in Regina, Saskatchewan. After the intruder pulled Fozzy drum tech Jack Slade off the band’s tour bus, breaking Slade’s collarbone, Chris Jericho chased down the assailant and roughed him up.
The story was reported by Wrestling Observer Radio’s Dave Meltzer. “There was apparently a kid helped play or did some drum work on the show and the kid wanted to get onto the tour bus or get autographs or something,” Meltzer reports. “I guess they don’t want him on and he ends up somehow sneaking on and one of the guys on the crew saw him and they got into a fight and the guy actually ended up with a broken collarbone because of the fight and then he gets kicked out.”
“So Jericho gives him a spear and he’s pounding on him from the mounted position. The people who were there watching this tried to hold the guy until the police arrived and then he got away. The police ended up catching him.”
Slade confirmed his broken collarbone with a post on Twitter yesterday (Dec. 3) evening:
Loudwire spoke to a very reputable source earlier today (Dec. 4) who witnessed the incident. “The guy was on meth and barged on the bus for an autograph,” the eyewitness says. “He was told he couldn’t just come onto the bus and to wait outside as Chris’ family was on the bus. He wouldn’t leave and took a swing at Jack Slade. He pulled Jack off the bus and Jack landed hard and broke his collarbone.”
“Chris chased the guy and tackled him. Then security came and called the cops. The guy ran away and jumped a fence and got caught on some barbed wire. Then got in his car and hit a security guard. Cops got him and charged him. He will be going to jail for sure.”
Jericho was not harmed in the encounter because… ya know… he’s Chris Jericho. Fozzy’s final 2018 Canadian tour date is tonight at The Gateway in Calgary, Alberta.
