Like other's have said the biggest difference between the two people in question, is that one was not employed by the WWE, therefore can do whatever he wants.
Being a collector of anything doesn't automatically mean you subscribe to the belief's of the items you are hoarding. My grandfather who was a book collector found a first edition copy of Mein Kampf at a thrift store in Glasgow. He bought it for next to nothing. Even though he owned the book, which he couldn't read by the way because it was in German, he didn't believe in what Hilter or the Nazi's stood for. It was a piece of history and that's why he wanted it.
If you look inside anyone's closet thoroughly enough you will find skeletons. Problem is people tend to forget that while they're looking through someone else's closet, someone just might be looking at yours.
