Kevin Nash can’t fathom why wrestlers who once wished for fans to ask for their autograph turn into “d**ks” when that happens.
The subject of fans seeking autographs has been a hot-button issue in recent years, especially after Rey Mysterio refused to sign items he believed the fan intended to sell.
During a recent edition of his “Kliq This” podcast, Nash spoke about fans objecting to those who seek an autograph. He said,
“I mean, for years, you watch someone else come over and ask someone you’re with to have their picture taken with them, and nobody asks you, and I’m like ‘man, it must be cool.’ Then, all of a sudden, you get noticed, and guys turn into dicks. You can’t have both.
“No, the boys, the boys turn into d*cks, because now they’re like *makes grumbling noises* f**k off. You’re a f**king fake wrestler, it’s not like you hit a curve ball, motherf**ker.
“Then there’s always the guy who wants to tell the people while they’re eating at the Waffle House with the rest of the boys that it’s not pilote to bother you when you’re eating a fine meal at the Waffle House, you know? It’s just like, you wanna picture? Come here sit next to me, want me to sign something? Here. You learn on this planet that if someone wants your s**t, to sign something. It takes 30 seconds to do it, but it takes four minutes to be a d**chebag and explain why you’re not signing something.”
Earlier this week, AEW’s Nyla Rose called out fans who wait at the airport for autographs they intend to sell online for a profit.

In the world of professional wrestling, fans seeking autographs from their favorite wrestlers has always been a cherished tradition. However, in recent years, there has been a growing concern over the behavior of some wrestlers when approached by fans for autographs. This issue was recently discussed by former wrestler Kevin Nash on his podcast, shedding light on the frustration felt by both fans and fellow wrestlers.
Nash expressed his confusion over why some wrestlers, who once wished for fans to ask for their autograph, suddenly become rude or dismissive when approached. He highlighted the irony of wrestlers who have witnessed others being asked for autographs and feeling envious, only to adopt the same negative attitude once they gain popularity themselves. Nash emphasized that wrestlers cannot have it both ways – they cannot desire fame and recognition while simultaneously rejecting the requests of their fans.
The former wrestler also criticized his fellow wrestlers for their behavior, referring to them as “d**ks.” He pointed out that being asked for an autograph is not the same as being praised for hitting a home run or scoring a goal in a professional sport. Wrestlers should remember that their success is rooted in the support of their fans, and they should show appreciation for that support by taking a few moments to sign an autograph or take a picture.
Nash also mentioned the common scenario where wrestlers are approached by fans while they are eating at restaurants or enjoying their personal time. He criticized those who feel entitled to privacy during such moments and believe it is inappropriate for fans to approach them. Instead, Nash suggested that wrestlers should be gracious and accommodating, offering to take a picture or sign an autograph if someone expresses interest. He emphasized that it takes only a few seconds to make a fan’s day, while refusing to do so can leave a lasting negative impression.
This issue has gained attention recently, with AEW wrestler Nyla Rose calling out fans who wait at airports to collect autographs with the intention of selling them online for profit. Rose’s comments highlight the frustration felt by wrestlers when they discover that some fans are exploiting their autographs for financial gain rather than cherishing them as personal mementos.
In conclusion, the topic of fans seeking autographs from wrestlers has become a contentious issue in recent years. Kevin Nash’s comments shed light on the frustration felt by both fans and fellow wrestlers when some wrestlers adopt a dismissive or rude attitude towards autograph requests. It is important for wrestlers to remember that their success is built on the support of their fans, and they should show appreciation by being gracious and accommodating when approached for autographs. By doing so, they can maintain a positive relationship with their fans and ensure that the tradition of seeking autographs remains a cherished part of the wrestling experience.
