WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins has said in a recent interview that he doesn't like it when fans stalk him at airports.
Speaking to The Chicago Tribute, according to Wrestling News, Rollins talked about being a heel and how he treats the fans outside of the ring. He said he adores the WWE Universe, but hates it when fans stalk him to the airports which he flies into for a photo.
He said: “I’m not mean to fans because I’m a bad guy. I’m mean to them because they’re rude. If they stalk me at the airport at 4 in the morning, don’t expect to get a picture. That’s not OK. They can’t hang outside my hotel or come to the gym and stare at me for a half hour and expect me to be like “Cool. Awesome.” My favorite thing is to just run into fans coincidentally.

"Today the National Car Rental guy recognized me and got so excited and wanted to take a picture. Awesome. It was a fan that happened to run into me. To me, there’s a distinct difference. Don’t get me wrong — our fanbase is super passionate and I love them, but there’s a difference between stalking me at the airport and just happening to see me.”
The WWE World Heavyweight Champion's former Shield-brother, Dean Ambrose, also talked about fan interaction in airports in the past week, as he is annoyed by fans approaching him for a photo.
He also mentioned how fans would reveal the wrestlers they saw at airports online, revealing potential spoilers and ruining the show for those fans that didn't know who was going to be there.
However, I'm sure the altercations Rollins and Ambrose have at airports are just with the one or two and that it is an unfair representation of the WWE Universe.
