Chris Jericho just learned that defending his brand new All Elite Wrestling World Champion belt is a full-time job.
The wrestling great became the fledgling promotion’s inaugural champion on Saturday, beating Adam Page at All Out in Chicago to win the sport’s newest belt.
Winning the AEW belt added yet another highlight to Jericho’s 29-year career, which has bounced from promotion through the years.
The victorious Jericho, belt in hand, then returned to Florida. One meal later, the belt was gone. The full details on what happened from Jericho’s point of view can be seen in this police report confirmed by reporter David Bixenspan as real:
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
So, basically, it appears Jericho had a limo take him from an airport to Tallahassee’s Longhorn Steakhouse, realized at some point he had taken the wrong bag from the airport, then had the driver go back to the airport while he ate dinner. The belt, left in the limo during the return trip, was gone when the limo arrived at the restaurant.
Explaining that should be a fun conference call with AEW executives.
