AEW Star Addresses Rey Mysterio Airport Situation
On February 10, 2023, a video of Rey Mysterio being bombarded at the airport by autograph seekers went viral. On the February 13 edition of "Busted Open Radio," Mark Henry wasn't having any of it, coming to the defense of Mysterio turning down "fans" asking for a signature when it was clear they were looking to make a buck reselling such signed memorabilia.
"I guarantee you it's about 15 to 20 guys. You see them every week in the airport as soon as we land. They'll drive seven to eight hours sometimes," Henry claimed. He also added that some of these "fans" will even bring kids with them to get something signed for the purpose of selling it.
"Guys I have zero respect for you. Zero and now it's worse," Henry stated, issuing a warning to those types. Henry promised to not make life easy for those trying to exploit the wrestlers, explaining, "Because if you try to tear down my brother — and I consider Rey family — you have made an enemy of me. It's the worst you could have done."
