Chris Jericho may be the inaugural AEW Champion after Saturday’s All Out PPV, but apparently he’s currently without a Title Belt to show for it. As reported by Fightful.com, a Tallahassee police report confirms that Jericho left the belt in a rented limo while eating at a Longhorn Steakhouse. The limo driver returned some luggage to the airport that Jericho had taken by mistake, and when Jericho got back in the limo the belt was gone. The police were contacted, but as of the last anyone has heard, nobody’s found the belt.
Here’s the full police report from Fightful:
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 place 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 repsonded to the scene.
Victim: Christopher “Jericho” Irvine, W/M, 11/9/70″
Some may view this is an embarrassment for Jericho and AEW, but if you wanted the return of old school wrestling, you have to admit this is story is as old school wrestling as it gets. I’m sure Hangman Adam Page will be quick to point out that this wouldn’t have happened if Jericho was traveling by horse instead of limo.
