According to several sources within WWE on whether Chris Jericho was going to be punished for the incident in Victoria this past weekend, PWInsider reports that WWE managements viewpoint on the situation was that he was forced into defending himself and is in the clear with them.

For those who missed it, WWE issued this statement yesterday:

“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.”
