Chris Jericho has launched an official investigation to find his missing All Elite Wrestling (AEW) Championship. The promotion’s inaugural champion informed fans of his plans via a video statement uploaded to social media. He explained he had hired the “top private investigators in the world” in order to locate the belt.
“Hi, I’m AEW Champion Chris Jericho, and unfortunately less than 24 hours after I became the first AEW Champion, with blood streaming down my face after one of the hardest matches I’ve ever had in my life, some low-life scumbag committed grand larceny and robbed me of the AEW Championship.”
“[…] as a result, I am launching a worldwide investigation using the top private investigators in the world today to find out who committed this crime. And trust me, as the AEW Champion, I promise to regain and restore and find and reclaim the AEW Championship, and once again give you another reason to finally give me the ‘thank you’ that I deserve. You’re welcome.”
