The AEW World Championship has been stolen from Chris Jericho

This is not a work.

This is not a work: The AEW World Championship belt has allegedly been stolen from Chris Jericho, its inaugural champion. The story has been confirmed by the Tallahassee Police Department, as verified by Deadspin’s David Bixenspan.

“The victim reported the theft of his championship wrestling belt while he was eating inside Longhorn Steakhouse,” the report reads. “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.”

“The limo drive shuttled the victim to the Longhorn for dinner” may be the most “Chris Jericho” sentence ever written. Regardless, this is a seriously unfortunate situation for All Elite Wrestling, who just crowned its first-ever champion in Jericho this past weekend.

More information on this situation will be provided when it’s available.
