Yeah, the tyre warmer was still fastened at the bottom but the wheel should still rotate. Most tyre warmers on bikes are installed by securing one end around the wheel then rotating the wheel through 360deg as the warmer wraps around it. Reverse the process to remove it.

IMHO the front wheel looked to be jammed solid, way too solid to be the tyre warmer holding it up, as you could see the tech nearly lifting the bike off the ground trying to move it and it wasn't budging a fraction of an inch, you could also see another tech doing something near the right handlebar where the front brake lever is.
