Chris Jericho’s AEW World Championship belt may have been stolen over the weekend.
Jericho filed a police report in Tallahassee, Florida on Sunday reporting “the theft of his championship wrestling belt”:
The victim reported the theft of his championship wrestling belt while he was eating inside Longhorn Steakhouse. The victim stated he arrived at the Millionaire Club Airport Terminal and placed the belt inside his rented limousine. The limo driver shuttled the victim to Longhorn for dinner. The victim remained at Longhorn while the limo driver returned to the airport. The victim had taken the wrong luggage from the airport and the driver took it back to the terminal. When the driver picked up the victim from the restaurant, the belt was missing. Responding officers searched the limo and airport for the belt without success. On-call CID was consulted, and forensics responded to the scene.
Victim: Christopher “Jericho” Irvine, W/M, 11/9/70
Responding to comments on Instagram about the stolen title belt, AEW wrote: “Authorities are working on it as we speak. Thank you for your concern.”
Jericho became the inaugural AEW World Champion by defeating Hangman Page in the main event of All Out at the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Illinois on Saturday night.
