The very expensive-looking AEW World title was stolen on Sunday and its owner, Chris Jericho, filed a police report in Tallahassee, Florida to report the theft.
When wrestlers are traveling, the safety of the title is their responsibility and they’re usually told not to put the title in their checked baggage for obvious reasons.
The police report states, “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.”
Meanwhile, in a post on social media, Jericho turned this not-so-ideal situation into an angle, posting a video while he was in a jacuzzi sipping on champagne saying that he is launching a worldwide investigation using the top private investigators in the world today to find out who committed this crime.
Longhorn Steakhouse also reacted to the theft writing, “We take the safety of our guests’ property seriously and are doing everything we can to help the local authorities in their efforts. That said, @IAmJericho is a champion with or without his belt.”
