Rhea Ripley has become one of the most polarising and popular figures in professional wrestling since she signed with WWE in 2017. As a result, a number of fans have been observed swarming the Aussie export at airports hoping to obtain mutiple signatures.
Ripley has taken to Twitter to express her displeasure with the situation:
People need to respect that no means no!
At airports do not follow me outside. Today has put me off completely! I will not sign ANYTHING that isn’t a personal photo of us anymore. Hate me, I don’t care. Disagree with me, try putting yourselves in our shoes for one bloody day.@RheaRipley_WWE on Twitter, 21/3/2023
Fans looking to obtain signatures on mutiple items at one time are often looking to resell at an inflated price, capitalising on the individuals popularity to turn a profit.
