The topic of pro wrestlers getting swarmed by fans for autographs in public became a hot button issue recently. A viral video of an unmasked Rey Mysterio fending off an obvious eBay reseller captured a lot of attention, but Mr. 6-1-9 isn’t the only person who has to deal with this issue.
The Young Bucks have a brilliant way of dealing with “fans” who just want to sell their autographs on eBay. Matt Jackson explained in an online video that he deals out “house show signatures” for them.
The house show signatures that the Young Bucks are talking about refers to a much sloppier autograph than he would give at a meet and greet. Many fans might not notice the difference, but Matt Jackson swears that the “Jackson” is much neater when he tries.
The video features Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson actually running into some autograph hounds at the airport. Those people got house show signatures. We’re not sure if that will hurt the value for a lot of fans, but it certainly matters to Matt Jackson.
The Young Bucks and Rey Mysterio aren’t the only ones who have been forced to deal with this. Rhea Ripley was recently spotted getting trapped by fans in an endless autograph loop as well. She had to ask them if she could leave in the end.
We’ll have to see if anything else is done to combat this practice. Fans could always stop buying those autographs, but that might be a much harder task to pull off.
