WWE Superstars Who Don't Care Much About Their Fans
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 kind of bizarre stories from fans about how they waited outside the airport for hours or how they followed a particular wrestler to their hotels just to get an autograph. These all may sound strange, but there are people around who would prefer a selfie with The Rock over their own freedom.
As fans, there are different kind of wrestlers too. There are wrestlers like Alexa Bliss, AJ Styles or John Cena that love to interact with their fans on every occasion they could get. Then there are some wrestlers who would 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 talk rudely with anyone who approaches them for a mere photograph. Let's discuss such four wrestlers who do not care about their fans much and see them as an obligation.
1. Randy Orton
Randy Orton is one of the top stars from the current generation and his star power can be clearly seen whenever he makes an appearance in any event, even outside the arena. Even though fans crazily adore him as a wrestler, he does not have the same feelings for his fans. 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-off the fans or rather talking very rudely in 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 some of the recent incidents that went viral. There are many other countless small occurrences where Orton's celebrity status went in his head.
2. CM Punk
CM Punk is known to be someone who is short-tempered and is a bit of a barbarian. Over the years, many fans have gone on to social media sites to share about their unpleasurable encounters with Punk. He constantly talks rudely with the fans in the airports or in any other public places and never thinks twice before insulting them. He even hit a fan once when he was the WWE Champion and used to run away in 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.
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 the fans in airports or in any 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 all such 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 those 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 would often blow-off the fans and would get easily upset with people who would 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 interest for the business he's in.
