More titles, more problems.
That seems to be the case for new All Elite Wrestling World Champion Chris Jericho. Fightful Select was able to confirm the accuracy of a police report with Tallahassee PD that emerged on Scott Keith's Blog of Doom Tuesday, noting that a "championship wrestling belt" was stolen from Jericho. It ended up being that newly won AEW Championship.
The police report reads:
(Case No.) / Grand Theft/ 2400 N. Monroe Street / 7:13 PM
"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"
Tallahassee PD confirmed with Fightful that the case was still open on Tuesday, however, Wednesday that championship belt was located on the side of the road of all places.
Breaking: @TallyPD announces it did in fact recover @IAmJericho's championship belt earlier today. Someone turned it in at headquarters after reporting finding it along the side of the road. The golden belt was valued at nearly $30,000.— Jeffrey Burlew (@JeffBurlew) September 4, 2019
Before the title was retrieved, Jericho had plenty of fun with the situation.
Fightful has reached out to All Elite Wrestling reps, as well as Jericho's web team for comment on the matter.
