All Elite Wrestling Star Chris Jericho won AEW World title at AEW All Out 2019 by defeating “Hangman” Adam Page. Soon after, the belt was stolen from his limo while he’s having dinner at a local Longhorn Steakhouse. The incident made waves on social media, helping Jericho and AEW garner more views.
The Tallahassee Police Department found the missing title days later and posted a picture of the belt on their official Twitter handle. Jericho successfully defended the title against the likes of Cody, Scorpio Sky, and Darby Allin. John Moxley finally dethroned Jericho in the main event of AEW Revolution.
On the latest edition of Talk Is Jericho, he opened up about his AEW World title belt theft. Jericho has a suspect in mind. However, Jericho made it clear that he’s not accusing anyone and it’s just something that he thinks could have happened.
“In my opinion, I think we got picked up. I think the bag went in there. The driver said, ‘that’s kind of interesting. What could be in that?’ I think when he drove back to the airport to return the incorrect luggage, I think he might have taken a quick glance at it, saw the shiny gold, thought it was quite expensive, which it turns out it was very expensive, legit $30,000. Then, called an accomplice to come meet him in the parking lot of the LongHorn.”
“He went inside to stall and kill time, to ask the lame question [of whether his home is an apartment building or house] while the accomplice opened up the back of the limo, and the flowers fell out because he didn’t know they were in there, grabbed the title, and split. The driver mysteriously finds it missing, comes in, and knows that he’s not lying because he never stole it. His fingerprints aren’t anywhere they weren’t supposed to be.”
“I’m sure the accomplice may have been wearing gloves because the CSI never found anything or maybe the CSI had DNA samples out the wazoo, but they were all in on it too! I don’t know.”
