On Tuesday, a report surfaced initially from Scott Keith’s Blog of Doom that a police report had been filed by Chris Irvine a.k.a. Chris Jericho regarding a missing championship belt.
The Tallahassee Police Department has confirmed the police report to several outlets, including ESPN, TMZ, Deadspin, and PW Insider.
The police report online 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.
Victim: Christopher “Jericho” Irvine, W/M, 11/9/70
Mike Johnson at PWinsider.com confirmed that the belt in question is the AEW championship that Jericho won on Saturday night at All Out.
AEW has essentially confirmed the story by stating on Instagram that “Authorities are working on it as we speak. Thank you for your concern.”
