If I have a bad encounter, I'll always give them a second chance before passing judgment.
Hulk Hogan - I met him a few years ago. He insisted I flex my bicep with his during our photo op. Thankfully, at no charge.
Bret Hart - Words cannot describe how humble he was.
Sting - A class act. He was interested in getting to know me and my friends for a bit before he had to take off for a TNA taping.
Stone Cold - I had a 5 minute chat with him before a monster truck show. The best part was when he dissed Hogan!
Triple H - He can be moody, but I never had a bad experience with him. The trick with The Game is he is big on manners and there can't be too many fans around. Even when he was a heel, he would stop to take care of physically handicapped children and I was touched by his act of kindness.
Kurt Angle - My favorite encounter ever. He just got off the plane for a SD show, but he had to stay in character by using crutches because of his "broken leg", but he couldn't get his luggage without blowing his cover so I offered to carry his bags and he still remembers me to this day for doing that for him.
John Cena - My first encounter with him was back in mid-2003 when he was a heel and he broke kayfabe to take care of me and my buddies. He's always been a cool guy whenever I met him.
Mick Foley - The most approachable wrestler you will ever meet.
Trish Stratus - Once you start a conversation with her, she's quite the talker. I would ask her a question and after she answered it, she would ask me one right back! (All the divas I've met have been great, but Trish was the best.)
Vince McMahon - I shit you not, I opened the door for him a few years back at the hotel he was staying at the morning of one of the No Way Out PPVs. When he realized, I wasn't the doorman, he gave me a firm handshake, allowed me to take a photo with him, and talked to me for a few moments before his limo driver rushed him.
Eddie Guerrero - Unfortunately, the only time I met him was early in the morning when he had to catch his flight, but he still stopped and took care of us despite being groggy.
Rob Van Dam - I had a nice 15 minute chat with him, mostly which was him bitching about WWE.
Chris Jericho - Very cordial. It only gets better when you bring up FOZZY.
Edge - A friendly fellow.
Christian - He was in a hurry, but he still stopped to take care of us.
John Morrison - He's really nice.
Kofi Kingston - All about the fans.
Bill Goldberg - Despite his tough guy demeanor, he is a funny man.
Dallas Page - We talked to him for awhile at The Hard Rock then he brought out his laptop right then and there to show us his yoga videos.
Ken Kennedy - He was swarmed by at least 100 fans after a show and he took every picture, signed every autograph, and shook every hand.
Montel Porter - He was nice to me even when he was a heel.
William Regal - See above.
Jeff & Matt Hardy - They always made sure to take care of any fans that were present.
Rey Mysterio - He'll usually stay after the show to sign autographs even during the winter.
Paul London - I met him a few times over the years and he actually remembered me!
Rene Dupree - We met him at Applebees ater a house show, but we didn't want to be rude by hitting him up during his meal so we gave him a shout-out. He offered us some of his dinner, which consisted of shrimp in return, but we weren't hungry. He took care of us afterwards. He wouldn't stop hitting on the waitress! X D
R-Truth - Laid back. He was shocked when I told him I was a fan of his since he was K-Kwik.
Carlito - He was drunk when I met him, but he was funny as fuck.
Chris Masters - Cool guy. He even put me in the Masterlock when we got our picture taken.
Rico - He actually came from around the fence to take care of fans at the arenas unlike most wrestlers.
Bobby Lashley - I have nothing, but good things to say about him.
D-Von Dudley - The complete opposite of Bubba Ray.
Dolph Ziggler - This was a great surprise as I thought he would turn me down.
The Miz - Not a fan of his, but he was awesome a few years ago.
Drew McIntyre - Ran into him at a gas station of all places. He admitted that he hated the trenchcoat when we brought it up and he loves to eat at In & Out.
Jerry Lawler - Great guy to talk to when he has free time.
Roddy Piper - I only met him once, but he acted like I was his best friend when I did. It was surreal.
Sgt. Slaughter - One of the best legends to interact with.
Jimmy Snuka - Nice. If anything, too nice.
Pat Patterson - I got punked by the original Intercontinental Champion. True story.
Nick Bockwinkel - I could listen to him tell stories for hours.
Ricky Steamboat - I bought him a cup of coffee at the hotel he was staying and had a nice long conversation with The Dragon. The most shocking part was when he told me he actually hated the "Sirius" theme.
Rick Martel - Very sociable.
The Iron Shiek - He actually got out of his wheelchair to give me and each of my friends a hug. I still can't believe he did that.
Harley Race - One of those guys that will be straight up with you. Great at giving advice.
Terry Funk - He has a good heart despite the tough as nails character he's famous for.
Vickie Guerrero - People love to make fun of her, but she is a sweetheart. I'll always have the upmost respect for Latina Heat.
Kevin Nash - He gets hated on, but he was great with me.
Theodore Long - We met him shortly after a Smackdown taping and he wanted to get our feedback about the show!
Kanyon - God rest his soul. Even in the hot ass sun before SummerSlam 2003, he came by the barricades to take care of the fans that patiently waited there all day while everybody else on the roster could've cared less.
Ronnie Garvin - He talked to me and my buddy for 15 minutes about the most random stuff you can think of.
Ric Flair - He was an arrogant prick, but what do you expect?
The Undertaker - He was cool back in the day. Not so much now as he doesn't like taking pictures with fans, but he'll sign an autograph for you if you're lucky.
Brock Lesnar - Standoffish.
Jeff Jarrett - Not personable.
Randy Orton - He acted like I wasn't even there, but I think he was in character so I don't hold it against him.
Batista - Man of few words.
JBL - Usually not nice, but I will forever be in his debt. The WWE security guys were giving me shit for wanting to get some stuff signed and pre-JBL Bradshaw told them to back off since I was all by myself.
Booker T - He pretended to be on the phone so we wouldn't bug him.
Kane - Hit or miss.
Big Show - Usually seen with a poker face.
Chavo Guerrero - He always seemed to be in a bad mood whenever I met him.
Shelton Benjamin - Definitely a guy with mood swings. Possibly racist.
Jack Swagger - He'll be nice one minute and mean the next!
Muhammad Hassan - He didn't like it when I asked him for a picture.
I.R.S. - He seems like a guy that doesn't want to be bugged.
The Honky Tonk Man - He tried to be an asshole to me, but once I offered to buy him a beer, he quickly changed his tune. = P
Raven - He cares more for cash than fans it seems.
Ted Dibiase - You talk to him about wrestling, you can hardly get a word out of him. You talk to him about religion and you can't get him to shut up.
Jim Ross - Ironically, not as talkative as seen on TV.
Dean Malenko - He has a piss poor attitude.
Michael Hayes - Usually disgruntled.
Jim Duggan - Not as friendly as I thought he would be. Disappointing to say.
Shawn Michaels - Not fan friendly at all. The last straw for me was when he refused to sign one 8x10 for my buddy who was a huge HBK fan after a show and there were only 3 of us in the area. Even Hunter was a million times nicer.
Bubba Ray Dudley - He threw a fit when I asked him to do a reshot because the picture came out blurry. D-Von actually apologized to me afterwards.
Jake Roberts - He refused to take a picture with a small kid.
Arn Anderson - A very pissy guy. Like he doesn't want to be there.
Scott Steiner - Absolute dickhead.
Billy Gunn - He acted like we ruined his day when we hit him up. He lived up to his name of Mister Ass.
Bob Holly - He's a jerk.
Mark Henry - He blew me off even after when he was a face a few years ago.
Test - He intentionally ignored a sick child before a show when everybody else who arrived before and after him stoppped to take care of the boy.
Michael Cole - Douchebag wouldn't even shake my hand.
