The Boss had a clear message to members of the WWE Universe seeking to meet her, get photos and autographs: arenas and organized events are fine, but chasing Superstars down at hotels and airports is “creepy” and amounts to “stalking.”
Sasha Banks recently guested on the Sam Roberts Wrestling podcast and offered her opinion on being bothered during her everyday life by fans looking to turn a profit off her autographs and merchandise:
You want me to talk about how much I hate being bothered at the airport or hotels? To me that is stalking. I don’t tweet out what hotel I am at, I don’t tweet out what airline I am flying out, I do tweet you what arena I will be performing at, so I do expect fans at the arena and I am so happy to sign at the arenas. That is fine, because I am telling you where I am going to be at. If I see you in public, that is fine. When I’m at an airport at 4 in the morning and I see somebody with a carry on and they open it with 100 items of everyone and they are bothering everybody to get an autograph and then I see it on Ebay, that is not okay to me. ‘Oh we called the airport and we asked if you were flying in anytime soon and give us a phone call’. I go: ‘give me this, leave me alone’. That is not okay, that is private information and to me that is stalking, that is creepy.
Banks also retweeted out a fun video with members of Titus Worldwide as they drove through Des Moines on their way to WWE Live this weekend. Here’s the video:
