Wrestlers aren't known to be qualified as the "nice guys". If you beat up people for a living, you probably have a dark side. That is the case with these wrestler misfits.
The people featured on this list will not put up with fans, and believe they are the next greatest thing to sliced bread; their egos are unreal. Wrestling is kind of like a cult, with fan following, promoters, and thousands of people screaming your name. Sometimes those screams are more like heckles, which turns some wrestlers bitter.
Many of these wrestlers are disliked all around, in the complete wrestling world spectrum. Their attitude, and radical mood changes triumph over their name. Fans are the people keeping the "fame" alive for wrestlers, these guys need to understand that. Why are they so focused on being jerks to their followers? The people on this list have had bad interactions with fans on the street, but may act a little nicer if they are getting paid to meet fans. It seems that to these guys, it's all about the money, not about the fans.
Some wrestlers are great towards their fans, and there are a lot of friendly wrestlers out there. These guys are just the bad apples in the bunch. Their egos are the most important thing, and to keep it at a standard level is of most importance to them. It's vital.
It's possible to argue, that fame itself is tough to deal with. Being famous is the same as having your movements watched at all times. I can understand some normal outbursts, but to be a jerk to your fans all the time is totally wrong. Get over it, your famous, and use it to better your name, the sport, and your public image. That would be my advice to wrestlers.
It was normal in the days of kayfabe for heel wrestlers to stay in character at all times, but with the era of kayfabe essentially over, there's no reason to be so mean to the people that helped make you.
Here are the Top 15 Wrestlers Who Are Jerks To Their Fans. As always feel free to leave your opinions in the comments section below.
15 Kevin Nash
14 Brock Lesnar
Batista's ego was very high when he rose to fame in WWE. At the 2014 Royal Rumble, a fan gave him the middle finger while wrestling the match. Batista was clearly enraged, and told the fan he would snap their neck in half. While leaving the event, he flipped off the entire crowd, even though he was a babyface at the time.
12 Scott Hall
11 The Miz
10 Bubba Ray Dudley
Bubba Ray Dudley knows he's a jerk, he won't deny that. Aside from bullying new wrestlers, and screaming at employees, he's mean to his fans. He once screamed at a fan, and allegedly called him a "fa****", and who could forget about all of the riots he almost started while wrestling in ECW. His partner D-Von may have said it best:
8 Randy Orton
7 Scott Steiner
6 Bob Holly
Bob "Hardcore" Holly has a huge reputation of being a jerk. As a sidebar of being mean to fans, here is a story regarding him and his tag team buddy Rene Dupree. Dupree forgot to pay a parking ticket for Holly one day. Nothing too serious. Holly got really angry and threatened to kill him. He kicked the guy 15 times in the head. Take that in. That story goes from 0-100 very quick.
5 Shawn Michaels
4 CM Punk
Punk referred to himself as a "self admitted jerk" once, so he put himself on this list. Many WWE employees hated working with Punk, and cited him as rude and even abusive. He says what's on his mind. It's well documented that Punk would tell fans that he hoped they died, or call them hate filled things during his time in WWE. If you don't believe it, just YouTube the video of Punk calling a fan a gay slur at a live event. Also after leaving wrestling, CM Punk was at a Chicago Blackhawks game, and almost got in a big fight with a fan.
3 Vince McMahon
2 Hulk Hogan
1 New Jack
New Jack is the biggest jerk in wrestling to his fans. Hands down, no arguments made. Let's not forget when Jack pulled out a knife on William Jason Lane in 2004. He stabbed the guy 13 times with fans all around him.
Aside from beating up and hurting fellow wrestlers unprofessionally, he is physical towards his fans.He also had an alleged incident at a bar, where he threw a beer at someone's head. In fact New Jack has a ton of stories about his interactions with fans, so many that we can't list them all here; look up the "Mass Transit Incident".
