While many wrestlers enjoy a friendly and cordial relationship with their fan base, there are also plenty who aren't so personable.

Meeting and interacting with our beloved WWE superstars is probably at the top of the bucket list for most of us wrestling nerds. We have heard all kinds of bizarre stories from fans about how they waited outside the airport for hours or how they followed a particular wrestler to their hotel just to get an autograph. Going to these extreme lengths just to meet an idol may sound strange, but there are people around who would do almost anything for a selfie with The Rock.

There are many different kinds of wrestlers. There are those like Alexa Bliss, AJ Styles, or John Cena who love to interact with their fans on every chance they get. On the other hand, there are some wrestlers who will do anything to get out of the limelight once they leave the arena. These superstars do not care about their fans' feelings at all, and some speak rudely to anyone who approaches them for so much as a photograph. This article discusses four such wrestlers who do not care as much about their fans and see them as an obligation.

1. Randy Orton

Randy Orton is one of wrestling's top stars from the current generation, and his star power can be clearly seen whenever he makes an appearance at an event, even outside the arena. Even though fans crazily adore him as a wrestler, he does not have the same feelings for them. Over the years, we have seen or heard about many sour exchanges between the Viper and WWE fans. There have been multiple reports of Orton blowing fans off and talking very rudely at fan meet-ups or in public.

Back in 2014, Orton took a picture with a Latin woman saying he met the Latina version of Ms. Piggy on Twitter. In 2016, he got into another heated Twitter exchange with some Black Lives Matter demonstrators after using the hashtag #AllLivesArePrecious, a play on the phrase "All Lives Matter." These are just a few recent incidents that went viral. There have been countless other small occurrences where Orton's celebrity status went in his head.

CM Punk is known to be short-tempered and a bit of a barbarian. Over the years, many fans have gone on to social media sites to share their unpleasant encounters with Punk. He constantly talks rudely with the fans in airports and other public places and never thinks twice before insulting them. He even hit a fan once when he was the WWE Champion! He also used to run away from crowds.

After he left WWE, his vitriol towards wrestling fans only increased. He started frequently ignoring fans who brought up wrestling, talked down to them in his shoot podcast with Colt Cabana, and openly criticized the WWE universe for not supporting him. There have been instances where he has behaved with the fans in an aggressive way. He is a great wrestler, but he will always be remembered for his brutal behavior.

3. Sasha Banks

If you based your opinion on Sasha Banks on just what you see on camera, then you would think that she is the most humble and kind wrestler around who gives her fans all the time in the world. Unfortunately, this is not even remotely true. When it’s time for her to meet her obligations, Sasha has no problems turning it on. But that’s simply because she’s obligated to do so. She wants to leave all her fans and commitments inside the arena only. There have been multiple instances where Sasha has refused to attend to fans in airports and other public places.

Sportster reported in 2016 that she thrashed a fan for being an airport creeper while all he did was ask for a photograph. She even discussed her disappointment in fans chanting random things during a women’s match. It seems odd coming from her, as she herself has said that she was a huge WWE fan in her childhood and would go to many events to meet her favorite wrestlers.

4. Brock Lesnar

It's no secret that Brock Lesnar is not much of a crowd-pleaser. He is a private person who does not enjoy being in the limelight all the time. When it comes to obliging fans with pictures and autographs, the anger can be clearly seen in photos. Over the years, along with his muscles, something else has also gotten bigger and bigger—his ego. According to the people who have met him in person in public places, he is one of the most arrogant athletes around. He often blows fans off and gets easily upset with people who come to him with different questions.

He's a very anti-social person and many see him as someone who only cares about making money and ignores all the public interest in the business he's in.
