SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
AEW World Champion Chris Jericho has filed a police report for a missing championship belt. Jericho (real name Chris Irvine) filed the report after eating dinner at a Longhorn Steakhouse. His limo driver dropped him off and went back to the airport. When the driver returned to pick up Jericho, the belt was missing. The report filed with the Tallahassee Police Department reads as follows:
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 responded to the scene.
Victim: Christopher “Jericho” Irvine, W/M, 11/9/70
The Tallahassee Police Department has confirmed the report is real, but have not specified whether or not the belt stolen was the AEW World Championship that Jericho won last Saturday at “All Out” to become the first AEW World Champion by beating Hangman Page. Scott Keith originally reported on the missing belt report with the Tallahassee Police Department.
