Being a WWE superstar requires a lot of traveling. They are constantly on the road between Monday Night Raw, Tuesday Night Smackdown, live events, PPVs, and promoting the brands and events.
Being as big as the WWE is, they have a pretty large fan base. Every week, millions of fans tune in to watch their favorite superstars, and their most hated, battle it out for their entertainment.
It’s also these fans that end up sneakily getting photos of them when they aren’t looking. Imagine being in a grocery store and The Dead Man, aka The Undertaker, walks in. Who wouldn’t want to get a picture of him? He is a legend. Anyone would want proof that they saw him, even if that means taking pictures without his knowledge.
Here are 20 WWE superstars who had their pictures taken without knowing.
20 Chris Jericho Grabbing His Luggage
When WWE hired Chris Jericho to participate in the PPV over in Jeddah, he had no idea how horrible his trip was going to be.

19 Batista Waiting For His Flight
After taking his leave from the WWE, Dave Batista made a pretty successful career over in Hollywood. Like the Rock in the past though, he has made brief returns to the WWE.

Seth Rollins and his best friend Roman Reigns are two of the biggest wrestlers in the WWE, as well as the busiest.
