Celebrity status?

I saw this man at the Atlanta airport a while back. What first struck me, obviously, but his sheer size. 7 feet plus.... I am a good 2 feet shorter. Then a lovely baggage handler came up to him to shake his hand (this is when I figured out he was famous for something), and this huge dude REFUSED to shake his hand. Flat out refused. I was appalled. Finally, a bunch of people start coming around to take his picture and meet him. He never smiles, he looks down (literally and figuratively) on all these adoring fans (lots of Friday night smackdown fans in the airport that day). Then, the real kicker... without thinking twice about it, he turns in my direction (I was only standing like 3 feet away from him) and starts doing the typical male reality check. Like he was shopping for melons! People were taking his picture for heaven's sake!!!! I was initially shocked at how rude he was to people, but then even more shocked at the fact that he had no qualms about turning towards someone two feet shorter and start grabbing his balls for dear life. Guys - if it's that bad, take it to the bathroom. I manage to make it through a day without scratching myself in front of an audience!!!!!
