Rey Mysterio is a true veteran in the world of professional wrestling, whose influence in the industry knows no bounds. He has sacrificed his body for the business and as a result, has suffered a slew of injuries over the years. That being said, her recently turned down a fan asking for an autograph. However, it seems the incident has made WWE superstars draw the line.

Recently, a video of an unmasked Rey Mysterio found its way to social media. In the clip, Rey is seen rejecting a fan’s request for autograph at an airport. Of course, this fan was obviously trying to flip Mysterio’s autograph for a profit.

Following the incident, WWE Superstars have made it clear that they will not tolerate any misconduct from fans. The viral video showed Mysterio declining to sign items such as Funko POPs and trading cards, labeling the request as a mere money-making ploy by the fans.

Upon its release, the video garnered mixed reactions and sparked a discussion about the extent to which fans can go when interacting with talent. According to PW Insider Elite, a significant number of Superstars were upset as the video attempted to portray Mysterio in a negative light. The consensus among the WWE personnel is that Mysterio was justified in refusing to be part of the money-making scheme, considering the selection of items presented.


The report further indicates that Rey Mysterio has an excellent reputation when it comes to dealing with fans. However, the video brought to the surface a problem that WWE is aware of, particularly concerning female Superstars who are often stopped and followed by fans even after getting into their cars. While there are no official rules concerning fan interactions, some Superstars are advising fans not to request autographs on toys or trading cards.

According to a few talents who spoke to PW Insider, most Superstars don’t mind taking selfies or signing 8x10s for fans. Nevertheless, since returning to touring in 2021, WWE Superstars are more likely to encounter groups of fans looking for autographs to sell, and the Rey Mysterio incident proves that a line has to be drawn. In summary, the WWE Superstars have made it clear that they will not tolerate any form of misconduct from fans and will take appropriate action when necessary.

Wrestlers are not obliged to entertain fan requests, and it entirely depends on the wrestler in question whether they want to sign anything. Regardless, WWE Superstars are definitely doing the right thing for themselves.
