Brock Lesnar Guy and the 7 Most Recognizable WWE Fans in the World
You've seen one of WWE's most well-known fans, Brock Lesnar Guy, every time WWE has shown the clip of Brock Lesnar returning in 2012.
With a grin smeared on his face, he mimicked Lesnar's trademark pose and became a minor celebrity of sorts. He joins Sign Guy, Vladimir and other WWE superfans who have attended so many shows and been such an active part of the experience that we couldn't help but notice them.
These fans sit up close. They've attended some of the biggest shows in WWE history and have since become a recognizable part of the product. Here are WWE's most famous fans in non-ranked order.
Special Mention: Crying Wrestling Fan
Dave Wills from Atlanta got a chance to talk to Bobby Eaton and Jim Cornette at a wrestling convention, and his emotions overcame him.
Out came one of the more famous wrestling-related quotes, "It's still real to me, dammit."
Judging by his interview on The Opie & Anthony Show, Wills is more of a fan of the NWA days than a WWE fan though.
Brock Lesnar Guy
Brock Lesnar Guy may have gotten noticed during Lesnar's return, but he's been a dedicated WWE fan for a long time.
On his Twitter profile, he says, "WWE is my passion. WWE is my life."
You can't miss him. He always wears that same skull and snake covered green camo shirt.
Brock Lesnar Guy, though, has a long way to go to achieve the celebrity of WWE's other ultimate fans.
Growing a Hulk Hogan-like mustache and continually dressing like him while attending WWE shows takes a mix of dedication and crazy.
Roddy Hogan (real name: Eric Sirvis) was a part of the WWE crowd for 20 years. He told WWE.com, "I believe I had the very first ticket to WrestleMania III." Servis has been a fan long enough to see Hulkamania die down and John Cena's era begin.
Sirvis, a Detroit area ice cream truck vendor, has unfortunately struggled with health issues in the last few years. Artist Karlos Kowaleski donated a portrait of Sirvis to help pay for his medical bills.
We Hate Cena Guy
If the We Hate Cena Guy was a politician, he'd be running on a single-issue platform. His "We hate Cena" t-shirt and unimpressed demeanor during John Cena appearances expresses a feeling shared by a portion of the WWE audience—the same portion that chants "Cena sucks!"
While so many superfans are associated with fandom towards a particular star, the We Hate Cena Guy is known for his distaste for the 11-time WWE champ.
He's been front and center at enough shows that Cena himself has noticed, acknowledging him several times.
Faith No More Guy
Bearing a striking resemblance to Faith No More guitarist Jim Martin earned him his nickname, while being an ever-present sight at WWE pay-per-views in the mid-to-late '90s made him one of WWE's more recognizable fans.
Decked out in a vest and sunglasses, Faith No More Guy went from being a familiar face in ECW crowds to a man WWE fans could try to spot at many televised events.
Often seen with fellow WWE fanatic Vladimir, Faith No More Guy saw some of the company's biggest moments in person, including the classic Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels Iron Man match at WrestleMania XII.
Angry Miz Girl
A passionate Orton fan, the young girl soured quickly when Miz took his title. The shot of her scowl was perfectly timed and has become part of WWE lore.
If you've watched WWE over the last few years, you've likely seen Rick Achberger on TV.
Known as either Sign Guy or Red Hat Guy, Achberger seems as dedicated to WWE fandom as many of the Superstars are to their craft. Dressed in an open blue shirt and backwards red baseball cap, he has made his name by provoking WWE's villains and holding up an abundance of signs.
Achberger told WWE.com, "I'm obsessed with WWE—World Wrestling Entertainment. Not only do I watch the programs all the time each week, I go to probably about 30 or 40 live WWE events pretty much all over the country."
How many fans get interviewed by WWE.com and how many appear on a WWE-themed episode of Deal or No Deal? Achberger has become WWE's most famous fan, but the prize for longevity goes to the next man on the list.
Vladimir showed up to countless WWE shows during the '80s and '90s.
You'll recognize him as the thin, but toned man in glasses who wears sleeveless shirts and usually holds up the sign for "number one."
Fans have even petitioned for him to be a part of WWE's Hall of Fame.
Like Sign Guy, Vladimir has been taken into the WWE fold. He took part in a Piper's Pit segment, igniting the crowd by saying Hulk Hogan's name.
