We're not sure why there is anyone out there that would want this thing (you can't even wear it to hold up pants), other than to maybe try and sell it for the $6k it's roughly worth.
That didn't stop two geniuses from stealing it anyway. Right in front of a stagehand.
The crime took place on August 18th in Ottumwa, Iowa before a non-televised event while a stagehand was unloading props from his truck.
According to the stagehand, who probably REALLY doesn't want to get into trouble, he was only turned around 'for a second' when one of the geniuses snatched up the belt and $400 replica with it.
It took the cops almost 4 years to find the culprits.
Just kidding, they easily identified them using surveillance footage: it was 33-year-old Joel Luke and 39-year-old Forrest Jamison, who are waaaay too old to be that excited about TNA.
They were then arrested.
