Jeff Hardy is universally beloved, being a proper veteran in the pro wrestling world. However, his personal demons have cost him a great deal. He has been back in AEW for a couple of months now, but that doesn’t mean his fanbase has stopped loving him any less. However, it appears that Hardy was recently ambushed by a fan to sign a lot of photos.

The issue of fans showing up at airports to meet pro wrestlers has become a recurring problem for several stars. While chance encounters are usually welcomed, a particular group of people now deliberately plan to be at the airport with a ton of merchandise, hoping to get the stars to sign them. These items are then later sold on eBay for a profit, causing frustration for the wrestlers.

Earlier this year, 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 sell Mysterio’s autograph for a profit.

As revealed by recent footage, Jeff Hardy was ambushed by a fan who had him sign a crazy number of photos. Hardy didn’t turn away the fan and actually signed each and every one of them.

Wrestlers are not obliged to entertain fan requests, and it entirely depends on the wrestler in question whether they want to sign anything. Regardless, there will always be a section of fans who feel entitled to get autographs and that’s unlikely to ever change.

What’s your view on this incident? Should wrestlers stop signing autographs at the airport? Let us know in the comments!
