Hi, I’m AEW Champion Chris Jericho and less than 24 hours after I launched a worldwide investigation to find my missing championship title, it’s been returned to me.
That’s not because of any law enforcement agency that was too busy posting pictures on Twitter and then deleting them and posting them again, or a funny meme or a clever GIF. It’s because of me. It’s because I put the fear of God into the hearts of those who robbed me, who committed grand larceny.
I told you I hired the best professional private investigators in the world today and as a result, I got back the most coveted prize in professional wrestling today – the most coveted prize in the world, period. Worth more than Marsellus Wallace’s briefcase. More valuable than Han Solo dipped in carbonite. More critically-revered than the arc of the covenant.
The AEW Championship title is back where it belongs – over the shoulder of the champion. And as I sit in my palatial estate, in my beautiful mansion, drinking a little bit of the bubbly, I once again demand – and rightfully so now more than ever – a thank you from the entire AEW fan base, from the entire AEW roster, backstage, front office, in the ring, all across the board, because I did once again exactly what I told you I was gonna do.
I got this championship back and I am never, ever letting it out of my sight again. I’m never gonna lose it. I’m never gonna be robbed of it. You’re gonna have to pry it out of my cold, dead hands if you want to take this from Chris Jericho ever again. And that’s fine. I’m in no rush as I wait for all of you to bow down on your knees and thank me. It’s good to be le champion.
