The guy who found AEW’s missing World Championship says he most certainly didn’t steal it … and the belt could’ve been found sooner if Chris Jericho had looked on Craigslist.
The Tallahassee Democrat interviewed Frank Price, a 41-year-old Florida State University employee who discovered the AEW World title in a velvet bag in the middle of a turn lane on Sunday evening.
Price says he and his wife were returning from a day of scalloping and only learned it was a wrestling belt after taking a peak inside the bag once they got home. Following a quick Google search, the duo realized it was the AEW World Championship … but assumed it was a replica.
“At that time there was nothing in the news about anything being lost or stolen,” said Price.
Price then listed the belt under Tallahassee’s lost and found section on Craiglist. “I found a pro wrestling championship belt on hwy 20 Sunday afternoon,” the advertisement explained. “Contact me with details and you can come get it.”
Price was eventually clued in on what was happening after the news broke, so he took the belt to the police station for it to be returned to Jericho. He also ran into the limo driver who was involved in the lost belt situation and the guy gave him a $200 reward.
Hopefully Jericho sends Frank a little bit of the bubbly too.
