I've always been very interested in knowing how some professional wrestlers are with their fans in real life. Some I'm sure are smug and stuck up douches but I know there are some who are friendly and outgoing. I've met a wide variety of wrestlers and there are some who stand out more than others when it comes to personality. Please discuss!
Nicest: John Cena (It was back in 2004 when he was the United States Champion). He was a really really nice dude. Very personable and outgoing. He used my marker to sign the autographs. It was at a small non televised event in my town. Rey Mysterio was just awesome. I met him in an airport in Winnipeg Manitoba. He seemed very happy to meet everybody and took his time to sign autographs and take pictures with everyone. Eddie Guerrero was very soft spoken but was extremely polite and happy to meet me, as was Chavo Guerrero. Remember the diva Candice Michelle? Yeah, she was a sweetheart and gave me a hug right off the bat. It was awesome and I may of pitched a tent. Christian, like others was pretty quiet but was polite enough and actually held a short conversation with me about his tight travel schedule after he signed my shirt. Road Dogg Jesse James was awesome and I actually got to spend a few hours with him. I have helped set up two WWE events (both non televised, but still awesome) and one indy promotion called CWE. Road Dogg was a part of CWE and it was held in an old casino/bingo hall in my town. I'm not going to lie but I actually smoked a couple joints with him and a couple of the other wrestlers in the business. Booker T was super nice. He was laughing and joking with everyone but I'm convinced he was baked.
Rudest/Briefest: Randy Orton was a complete douche. When he got out of his car at the event, he ignored everyone and walked into the arena with no response to screaming fans. When he came out at the end, he walked up to Mysterio (This was the second time I met Mysterio), while Rey was signing autographs, asked him for the keys to the car. Got them and went and sat in the car the entire time the other guys interacted with fans.
Rob Van Dam was very brief and didn't seem interested in anybody around him. He shook my hand but he didn't smile or look at me. He was even looking away when he did it.. I had to laugh at the fact that he was wearing tight jean shorts and an unbuttoned red silk spiderman shirt with nothing under it. In a freakin' airport.
Renee Dupree literally only said "Sup" as he was looking down at a stack of money he was counting while standing in line at an airport. Didn't look up or smile.
Bob "Hardcore" Holly was outright rude. He got out of his car at an event and when fans asked him to come over for autographs he looked at everyone like we had two heads and simply said "No" then turned around and walked into the arena.
John Morrison and Joey Mercury were the absolute worst. There was a 10 year old overweight handicapped boy at the event, waiting outside amongst the crowd (He was standing beside me). When I say handicapped, I don`t mean completely out of it. I mean he was slow. When Morrison and Mercury got out of their car, the boy asked them flat out to sign his magazine. Mercury said "Got a pen?" The kid presented a pen..Mercury took it and threw it across the parking lot while the kid looked stunned. Morrison then said right to his face "Go pick up your pen, fat ass".
