Chris Jericho is the new All Elite Wrestling world champion after winning a recent title match for the up-and-coming All Elite Wrestling league.
At the match, which took place on August 31 during the AEW a recent title match for the league’s All Out pay-per-view event at the Sears Centre Arena in Illinois, Jericho conquered Adam Page to walk away with the championship.
Jericho, 48, emerged as the proud holder of the belt — or at least he was until reporting the belt stolen to police days later.
TMZ is reporting that the Canadian wrestler filed a police report in Tallahassee, Florida on Sunday, alleging that he landed at the airport and then headed straight for a bite to eat while the belt went missing somewhere along the way.
According to the police report — which somehow found its way to Twitter — a luggage mix-up apparently factored into the belt going missing.
“The victim reported the theft of his championship wrestling belt while he was eating inside Longhorn Steakhouse,” reads the police report.
“The victim stated he arrived at the Millionaire Club Airport Terminal and placed the belt inside his rented limousine,” the report continues. “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.”
Prior to losing the belt, Jericho featured it in several of his social media posts.
TMZ reached out to Jericho; no word yet on whether he was able to retrieve the belt.
