WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry came to the defense of Rey Mysterio, who was bothered in an airport last week by autograph-hungry fans. The World’s Strongest Man spoke on the latest episode of Busted Open Radio to take these ‘fans’ to task for accosting Rey to sign their merchandise.
Henry said, “I guarantee you it’s about 15 to 20 guys. You see them every week in the airport as soon as we land. They’ll drive seven to eight hours sometimes. Guys, I have zero respect for you. Zero, and now it’s worse. Every time I see you — and you know who you are — I will have to ask the AEW talent not to sign for you. When you come to the hotel, I’m going to have security throw you out now because I’m just going to make your life a living hell. Because if you try to tear down my brother — and I consider Rey family — you have made an enemy of me. It’s the worst you could have done.”
The encounter between Mysterio and the fans was caught on camera, and you can see the video below. Henry referred to Rey as “one of the nicest people in wrestling.” Henry added that occasionally, fans would bring along children to elicit sympathy for an autograph, only to sell the items later.
So these creeps showed up to the airport to stalk wrestlers for autographs.
Ran into Rey Mysterio who was polite and agreed to one autograph.
