Professional wrestling stars meeting fans is not something that is rare in the pro-wrestling world. However, when the AEW owner Tony Khan met a wrestling fan, it immediately caught the attention of the world. And the reason is the person he met is not an ordinary fan. He is ‘Vlad the Superfan’ who got immensely popular two years back, just because of WWE.
Tony Khan meets a superfan
Recently, AEW President Tony Khan uploaded a picture from his official Twitter handle. In the picture, Khan is posing with ‘Vlad the Superfan’. He also shared his experience of meeting with a superfan of professional wrestling.
Tony Khan wrote that when he was eight years old, he watched his first live pay-per-view and there he saw a man have a great time. Khan also mentioned that when he was 12, he joined ICW and found out that his name is Vlad and he is honored to meet him.
Along with the picture, Tony Khan wrote, “At age 8, on the first ppv I ever watched live, I saw a fan who seemed to be having such a great time at the live event.”

At age 12, I joined the IWC, and learned that his name is Vlad, + he’s a very nice guy.

Vladimir Abouzeide, popularly known as ‘Vlad the Superfan’ is not the only one who is a huge fan of professional wrestling. Fans like ‘Brock Lesnar Guy’, ‘Frank the Clown’, and ‘Rock the Sign Guy’ were also quite famous back then. But there is a thing that separates Abouzeide from all of them.
What made ‘Vald the Superfan’ so popular?
Back then, whenever there was a wrestling pay-per-view in and around New York City, a guy was always spotted on camera. People started calling him a wrestling superfan and soon after he caught the attention of Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.
In 2021, at WrestleMania 37, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H announced that soon WWE is going to release a documentary about Vladimir being the greatest fan of the pro-wrestling.

Even though the finished product was never released because of an unrevealed reason, still Vladimir got huge popularity for that. And the wrestling fans started calling him ‘Vlad the Superfan’, which was supposed to be the title of his documentary.
However, when his story was almost forgotten by the professional wrestling world, it seems like Tony Khan has revived it.
