As previously reported, All Elite Wrestling recently provided an update that the allegedly stolen AEW World Title belt was found and that the case had been solved. The post even had the exact same photo that was originally deleted by the Tallahassee Police Department. All Elite Wrestling would even thank the Tallahassee Police Department and that was the end of it.
It was previously reported that just days after Chris Jericho’s historical and momentous AEW World Title win at last month’s AEW All Out PPV Event against “Hangman” Adam Page his AEW World Title belt was allegedly stolen while he was having his dinner at a Longhorn Steakhouse in North Monroe Street in Tallahassee, Florida.
It seems to be strange and interesting at the same time that All Elite Wrestling’s Twitter post about thanking the Tallahassee Police Department and saying that the case of the allegedly stolen AEW World Title belt being solved had been deleted.
Jeff Burlew, who is a reporter for the Tallahassee Democrat, recently took to Twitter and said that the Tallahassee Police Department did have the AEW World Title belt in their possession after someone turned it over to them. The person who turned the belt over to the police even said that the belt was found along the side of a road and that the belt is valued at almost $30,000.
Burlew also mentioned in his tweets that no arrests were made in the alleged theft of the AEW World Title belt and that the belt was reportedly stolen at around 5:30 PM on Sunday, September 1st, but Chris Jericho only reported it to be stolen after two hours.
