Sasha Banks has tons of fans all around the world who would love to meet her. But it turns out there are a few people who are a little bit more intense about accomplishing that wish.
Banks spoke to Sam Roberts on Sam Roberts’ Wrestling Podcast about some fans who take it over the line.
“You want me to talk about how much I hate being bothered at an airport or hotels?” Sasha Banks asked. She admitted there was a difference between a six-year-old girl walking up to her and asking for an autograph and someone accosting her for a stack of autographs when she’s busy at an airport. “To me I have such a big — and I grew up a wrestling fan so I knew I wanted to meet my favorite wrestlers but always in the back of my head I never thought in my life I’d be like ‘hey, they’re gonna fly in. Maybe I should wait at the airport for like twelve-hours at the gate Hey — they don’t need any sleep, maybe let me find the hotel they’re staying at and bother them.'”
“Like to me, that’s stalking. I don’t tweet out what hotel I’m at. I don’t tweet what airport I’ll be flying out of. I do tweet what arena I’ll be performing at so I do expect fans at the arena and I’m so happy to sign at the arena. That’s fine because I’m telling you where I’m going to be at. If I see you in public, that’s fine. But when I’m in the airport at four in the morning and I see somebody with a carry-on and they open it with a hundred items of everyone and they’re bothering everyone to get an autograph and then I see it on eBay… that’s not okay to me.”
Sasha told a story about after she was clocked in the head by a referee when he gave her an unintentional shining wizard. Sasha had a bit of a busted-up face so WWE sent her home on a Monday, which is unusual. “And there were fans at the airport with fans with stuff to sign and I was like, wait how did you guys know what time I land and I was going to be here, they go ‘oh we called the airport and asked if you were flying in anytime soon to give us a phone call.'” That didn’t set too well with Banks and she told them to leave here alone. So if you keep bugging The Boss, she won’t be happy to see you.
Bully Ray weighed in on this subject and had a very different response.
Never worry about fans waiting at an airport at 5am asking for your autograph. Worry when they're NOT there at 5am asking for your autograph
