Jericho defeated Hangman Page at AEW's All Out last weekend en route to being named the startup company's inaugural champ but contrived to lose it thereafter, while he was eating at a Longhorn steakhouse. The belt has been retrieved by the star, who's posted a video to let fans now things are all good.
But, apparently, that hasn't gotten him off the hook - at least where Hardy is concerned. The WWE vet shared a satirical video via his Twitter account this week poking a bit of fun at Jericho.
The video, which can be seen below, shows Hardy stepping out of a steakhouse and explaining he's just had some good food with his wife. He then realizes something is missing and runs back into the restaurant, returning with his belt in his hand and accusing some unknown would-be thief of trying to steal it.
The Belt Could Change Owners Again Pretty Soon
Jericho should see the funny side of this. After all, there's only one side and it's pretty funny. The champ is now set to defend his previously lost or stolen title against Cody Rhodes at Full Gear in November. The show will also give fans that Jon Moxley vs. Kenny Omega fight they were hoping to see at All Out, before the former announced he was unable to fight due to a staph infection in his elbow.
As for the championship belt, a University employee found it near the side of a Tallahassee road while driving home earlier in the week (ain't that something?). The finder thought the belt was a replica and posted it in the lost and found section on CraigsList before being told that the silverware had been reported missing.
He phoned the Tallahassee Police Department and was told to bring it in. He was probably thought of as a suspect initially but had enough to prove that he was nowhere Jericho's location when the belt went missing.
