It's no secret that WWE Superstars have had issues with fans trying to get pictures and autographs from them at airports and other public spots, but one WWE fan may have taken things a bit too far.
In recent months the issue of fans asking Superstars for pictures and autographs has really ramped up, especially when former Monday Night RAW Women's Champion Sasha Banks went off on fans on a recent episode of The Sam Roberts' Wrestling podcast and called fans who wait out for her at airports and hotels as 'stalkers.'
Those such as former WWE Superstar Chris Masters and WWE Hall Of Famer Jerry "The King" Lawler came out it fans defense due to this, with Masters calling Banks a diva and Lawler mentioning that there will be a day when fans won't be waiting for them anymore - and then they'll begin to miss it.
On the other hand it is a bit unsettling to know that there are people out there who know your travel plans and are waiting to shove a picture in your face for an autograph or try and get a picture of you after you've just gotten off the 10th plane ride of your week.
Another issue is when fans try and get pictures with Superstars who are with their families - an incident recently experienced by former WWE Universal and United States Champion Kevin Owens. On Twitter a fan told Owens to be on the lookout for his girlfriend who just spotted him at an airport.
Owens later responded by blasting the fan's girlfriend for not being a 'decent human being' and taking an unwanted picture of him and his daughter. "KO" said he would have preferred that she gone up to him and asked him for the picture rather than taking it without permission.
This then sparked a debate between Owens and fans on how to approach a wrestler for a picture:
What are your thoughts on Owens going off on the fan's girlfriend for taking a picture of him and his daughter without permission? Should she have asked Owens for a picture first? Or are WWE Superstars being too strict when it comes to their fans asking them for pictures out in public?
