The Undertaker Names What Type Of Wrestling Fans Bother Him

The Undertaker WWE

The Undertaker appreciated the support from wrestling fans, but there were certain places where he didn’t like being bothered.

As a 30-year WWE veteran who is a WWE Hall of Famer who is revered for having a legendary career, The Undertaker is one of the most beloved characters in pro wrestling history. Even though he was known as “The Deadman,” he was also the favorite wrestler of a lot of fans who fell in love with the pro wrestling business.

During his legendary career, The Undertaker traveled all around the world many times and he had to stay in character throughout a lot of it. That likely led to lots of interesting interactions with fans.

In an interview with Busted Open Radio, The Undertaker spoke about how he hated fans coming after him in airports wanting their merchandise signed. Taker referenced an incident with Rhea Ripley last year where fans bothered her until she signed their items.

“Pittsburgh was the worst for the marks coming out with the huge binders of 50 pictures of the same guy. If I’m by myself traveling, minus my family, I try to be as accommodating as I possibly can to my fans. It’s part of it. I have never ever considered those people to be fans. They’re trying to make a buck. It drives me absolutely crazy.”

“I saw something online where Rhea Ripley gets caught at the check-in counter and this guy is just handing her picture after picture after picture after picture. I’m talking to Rhea through the thing that I’m watching and I’m like just turn around. That pisses me off. Everybody knows what it feels like at 6 AM trying to catch a flight. That sh*t drives me absolutely crazy.”

The Undertaker Recalls A Father Using Their Child To Try To Get An Autograph

Story time with The Undertaker continued as The Deadman spoke about a father trying to get his kid to get an autograph from the WWE legend.

“The guy comes down and they’re all huddled together and I see them. They’re flipping through their pictures to get to The Undertaker pictures and the guy comes up to me. He goes, ‘Will you sign?’ I’m like nah man, I can’t do that. We go sit down and we’re waiting on our luggage and I’m watching this guy from 2 or 3 luggage racks over and I can see him talking to this little girl. He is giving her verbatim what to do. She’s maybe 6 years old.”

Bully Ray, who was at the airport with The Undertaker when this happened, spoke up since he’s a co-host on the show: “I would say maybe 8 to 10. The sweetest little girl in a little dress in pigtails.”

That led to The Undertaker continuing the story about what he did when the little girl approached him.

“Here she comes and I’m like, this sonofabitch. This dog, right? She went to somebody on either side of me. She went to the wrong person first. I could hear her say ‘Mr. Undertaker, will you sign?’ [I say] I’m him, what can I do for you honey? She goes ‘Oh, I’m a big fan, will you sign this for me?'”

“I’m thinking this son of a gun sends this poor girl over here who doesn’t even know who I am. I say, you know what of course I’ll sign that for you. I think I wrote on there, ‘Hey you can go F off’ on the picture.”

“I put the picture face down in her hand and I said you hold this picture just like this and you take it back over there and hand it to your dad…she walked all the way back over to him and hands him the picture. He pulled that picture up and he read what I wrote. He was freakin’ pissed. Don’t use a kid to try — it rubs me wrong man.”

In the same interview, The Undertaker spoke about his surprising return at WrestleMania 40 and what was difficult about it.
